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 have experienced a traumatic event, or perhaps many, many moments of "little t trauma" that have piled up over the course of your life and continue to affect you.
You have experienced religious or spiritual trauma, or are going through faith deconstruction, and want to process it with a therapist who can really understand where you're coming from.
You’re experiencing burnout, compassion fatigue, or vicarious trauma at work. Your career 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. You may have anxiety that has become obsessive, or have been told you have OCD.
Laura Brassie, MA, LPC, LMHC, LCPC, ACS
EMDR Certified Therapist (she/her)
I'm based in Denver, and have worked in a variety of settings in the mental health field: hospitals, nonprofits, community agencies, mental health tech companies, and private practice. Early in my career, I developed a passion for supporting folks who have experienced trauma, and was trained in EMDR to support that work.
In addition to my own practice, I'm also a clinical supervisor with SALT Wellness Group in Greeley, Colorado and Motivo.
I see clients in person at my office in Thornton, Colorado. I'm also available for virtual sessions to those in Colorado, Utah, Washington, Nevada, and Florida.
If you're interested in supervision, I can supervise pre-licensed counselors in Colorado, Washington, and Utah. I also provide ACS Consultation and Endorsement, which is not location specific.

"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 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, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I have obtained the EMDR Certification, an advanced credential in EMDR therapy.
I'm not going to tell you what to do, but I'm also not just 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, digital mental health companies, 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.
