Clinical Psychotherapist


A Note From Laura

“Starting therapy can be intimidating as it involves stepping into the unknown. You may recognize a sense of being stuck or out of alignment in your life, yet struggle to articulate the specifics or the path toward change.

I believe that within you already lies the power to heal, transform, and flourish. As a psychotherapist, my role is to walk alongside you on this journey of self-discovery and meaningful change. Together we explore your emotional and relational landscape, and bring awareness, understanding, and clarity to the intricate and complex connections between your past experiences and present reality, in order to move towards a more fulfilling future.

I am committed to cultivating a compassionate, nurturing, and safe space that both honors your lived experiences ​​while also encouraging deeper honesty, authenticity, and curiosity in your life and relationships.”

Laura is a Licensed Social Worker and a University of Chicago graduate with a Master’s degree in Social Work as well as a Master’s in Divinity.
