Laura is active and empathetic in supporting her clients to have on-going access to "what is true and right for them" in the midst of the ups and downs of life. Laura's work is based in warmth, safety and collaboration and she believes all of us need to be 'seen' and valued on the journey to where we want to go. Laura's approach is experiential and somatic - meaning that attention is given to 'in the moment experience'. This creates deep and lasting change.
Laura obtained a Masters in Social Work from the University of British Columbia in 2008. Her practice is based in attachment theory, neuroscience, and body and emotion -focused experiential approaches. She has received extensive post-graduate training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Developmental Psychology, and Synergetic Play Therapy.
Laura knows, both personally and professionally, the immense value of a supportive space to move toward difficult terrain and ultimately, toward full living.
She has had a spiritual and meditation practice for the last twenty years.
