Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Laura!

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, overwhelming stress, navigating new life experiences, or seeking to heal from traumas, we can work together to move through it. My role is to partner with you to build insight into who you are and what's happening in your life, develop healthy ways to handle it all, and move in a direction that aligns with your values and overall wellness.

My approach

My primary therapeutic approaches include aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Logotherapy. We will examine and shift any unhelpful patterns of thinking or behavior that might be hindering your progress or well-being. Together, we can build resilience in the face of life's inevitable stress and struggles, uncover your own voice, and help you be the author of your own story while seeking meaning in your experiences.

My focus

I work with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, self-esteem, stress, suicidal ideation, trauma/PTSD, and self-harming behaviors. My goal is to guide you toward wellness and healing in all aspects of your life - mental, emotional, professional, relational, personal, physical, and spiritual.

My communication style

Getting started with therapy, and continuing it, takes courage and dedication. I aim to create an environment of insight, support, and growth through open and collaborative communication. We will work as partners to help you achieve your wellness goals.

My journey to mental healthcare

From August 2014 to March 2018, I completed my clinical hours for licensure at Alum Rock Counseling Center in San Jose. This experience solidified my passion for helping others navigate life's challenges and find healing.

My goals for you

My ultimate goal is to empower you with the insight, skills, and resilience to handle life's ups and downs in a way that aligns with your values. I want to help you find your voice, live authentically, and move toward a greater sense of meaning and well-being in your life.

My first session with you

In our first session, we will discuss what brings you to therapy and begin to get to know each other. I will listen to understand your unique story, challenges, and goals. From there, we can develop a plan together for how to best support your mental health and overall wellness. I look forward to beginning this journey with you!
