We will get back to you with one business day.
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’re experiencing burnout, compassion fatigue, or secondary trauma at work. The career you used to love has become exhausting, and you don’t know what to do next.
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 have experienced religious or spiritual trauma, and want to process it with a therapist who can really understand where you're coming from.
Caren Paul, RP, Clinical Intern
I'm working on my Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and working with clients at Ivory & Pine Counseling until August 2021.
I can still accept new clients at this time, but please note that I will graduate in August 2021.
I truly want to work with everyone in the family: kids, teens, couples, and whole families. I really enjoy working with people in alternative family systems, and I'm LGBTQ+ and poly/kink friendly. I use a practical, solution-focused approach to help clients figure out what they want, and move toward it without getting caught in the weeds.
Sessions with Caren are available for a reduced rate!
Laura Brassie, MA, LPC
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Colorado, Kansas, and Florida. I’m passionate about helping my clients work through the barriers that are holding them back, such as past trauma, deconstruction, or burnout, and find the confidence and freedom to grow into their full potential.
I offer individual therapy and clinical supervision.
You can also access my work on burnout through my two online courses: Preventing & Treating Burnout; and Preventing & Treating Burnout for Therapists & Healthcare Professionals.
Sessions with me are straight-shooting, a little humorous, and full of acceptance. My clients appreciate that I show up authentically, with genuine compassion. 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. We want to get to know the unique you, so that we can work well together and use approaches that suit your specific needs.
We believe that trauma, whether it seems big or small to you, is at the root of most mental health difficulties. We look at how and why your coping skills helped you survive in the past. Then we move forward together.
We use therapeutic approaches that are backed by research and experience, such as EMDR (Laura), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.
We're not going to tell you what to do, nor are we just going to be a blank sounding board. We want to work together and be partners in the therapeutic process.
Laura has provided therapeutic care in psychiatric hospitals, schools, universities, community-based settings for both mental health and substance use, emergency rooms, and private practice.
We believe that our thoughts, feelings, bodies, and spirits are all connected. We will ask you to pay attention to your whole self and help you learn how to do that.
If you have any questions about our services or would like to schedule a session, feel free to contact us. Your potential therapist will get in touch with you within one business day per the schedule below.
