Laura’s specialties include mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, school stress and behavioral issues, and supporting individuals and families through transitions between levels of care. She uses a mixture of modalities with clients, choosing to tailor her approach to the client and use the most helpful and applicable pieces of CBT, DBT, and ACT while working to fully understand each client’s environment and the systems that impact their lives. Her aim is to work with clients collaboratively to meet their goals, process difficult events and build skills in order to gain better stability, resiliency and balance in their lives.
