I have known Laura for twenty years. When I was a high school teacher teaching parenting and child development classes, I had her come in as a guest speaker to my classroom to talk about child abuse. She was just awesome. She was really knowledgeable and you could tell she had a heart for children and families. I was really impressed with her professionalism and just everything about her.
Through the years I have worked with her in various settings. When I was working in the mental health field, I worked along with her and we had some common cases. Laura was always very helpful, professional, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. She's very sensitive to people and each individual's needs.
She's easy to talk to. I've recommended a lot of young people to her practice and they've always told me she was really easy to talk to and that she listened very well. She just helped them a lot. Right now I do a lot of volunteer work and when I run into people with mental health issues, I still recommend them to her. My own young adult children have been clients of hers. They have talked to her when they have had crises going on.
