Laura has a foundational background in the study of metaphysics that goes back several generations as well as deep and abiding love of psychology and a fascination with the inner workings of the human mind and heart… that, coupled with genuine empathy and caring for her clientele is, in part, what makes Laura’s brand of personal attention focused therapy unique.

By creating specialized and unique sessions based around each individual’s needs, Laura connects deeply with her clients giving one-on-one personalized therapy, using an intuitive approach and a blend of various modalities including Hypnosis, Therapeutic Imagery, Mental and Emotional Release® Therapy, etc.

She creates an environment in which you can examine your own inner landscape and truly explore your goals, gifts, talents, passion and purpose. Ultimately, giving the client back their own power to create the life of their dreams… by harnessing the tremendous potential of the subconscious mind. This, in turn, creates great and lasting change and gives rise to a new way of being; in what can often seem to be nothing short of miraculous for the individual who is ready for this change. This is the life purpose-fully-lived beyond the boundaries of learned patterns and limiting beliefs.
