We will contact you shortly.
You might look “high-functioning,” but you don’t feel that way. Most days, if you’re being honest, you’re not sure who you are or who you’re supposed to be.
You’ve experienced something traumatic, and it’s negatively affecting your daily life.
You’ve been secretly struggling with depression and anxiety because you feel like you can’t let your guard down around people in your life. Maybe you've started self-harming or thought about suicide.
You’re a helping professional experiencing burnout, compassion fatigue, or secondary trauma. The career you used to love has become exhausting, and you don’t know what to do next.
You're seeking help for your child and might be interested in family therapy or parenting coaching to learn how to best support your family.
As of June 8, 2020, we will be offering in-office sessions again part time. We are doing our very best to align our precautions with the CDC recommendations and regulations from the City and County of Denver. The following are our general health and safety precautions, in additions to sanitizing procedures between each appointment.
General Safety and Health Precautions:
● Office seating in the waiting room and in Laura’s therapy room have been arranged for appropriate physical distancing. ● Laura and Caren are wearing masks. ● Laura and Caren will maintain safe distancing. ● Laura and Caren will wash hands thoroughly between each appointment. ● Everyone is encouraged to wash their hands before and after appointment.● Hand sanitizer is available in Laura’s therapy room. ● Appointments are being scheduled with 30 minutes in between to allow for proper sanitation. ● We are asking all clients to wait in their cars, outside, or the first floor lobby with social distancing until we text you that we are ready for you to come straight to the therapy room. The 30 minute gap between sessions should allow us to have plenty of time for cleaning so that your appointment starts and ends on time.● The tea station is currently unavailable. The water cooler is still available with disposable cups.● We are doing our part as members of the office suite to sanitize. ● Tissues and trash bins are easily accessible. Trash is disposed of frequently throughout the day.● Physical contact is not permitted.

I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Colorado. I’m passionate about helping school-aged kids, adolescents, and young adults work through the barriers that are holding them back and find the confidence and freedom to grow into their full potential.
My clients appreciate that I show up authentically, with genuine compassion. I know that if I don’t show up as my real self, I can’t expect you to do that.
Therapy sessions with me are straight-shooting, a little humorous (mostly because of the therapy pups), and full of acceptance. I offer a safe place for you to work on yourself and find healthy ways to thrive in the future.
"The willingness to show up changes us. It makes us a little braver each time."
Every client and every concern is unique. I want to get to know the unique you, so that we can work well together and I can use approaches that suit your specific needs.
I believe that trauma, whether it seems big or small to you, is at the root of most mental health difficulties. I look at how and why your coping skills helped you survive in the past. Then we move forward together.
I use therapeutic approaches that are backed by research and experience, such as EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.
I'm not going to tell you what to do, nor am I just going to be a blank sounding board. I want us to work together and be partners in the therapeutic process.
I have provided therapeutic care in psychiatric hospitals, schools, universities, community-based settings for both mental health and substance use, emergency rooms, and private practice.
I believe that our thoughts, feelings, bodies, and spirits are all connected. I will ask you to pay attention to your whole self and help you learn how to do that.
