I'm LauraHi there! I'm Laura, and I'm so glad you are here. I want you to know that I see your pain and consistent feelings of overwhelm. For so long, you have been able to harness your energy to be successful in your work and as a parent, but suddenly you hit a wall. What worked before to power through is not working anymore. You're beginning to wonder who you really are. I get it, and I can help. Our lives are not as linear as we thought they would be. I want you to know that it is okay, and together we can forge a new healthier path for you. You'll be amazed at who you become through the process of counseling.
Most days you can find me counseling, writing, running, and constantly engaging in the chaos that is our home with four kids. I love serving the world be helping others and writing to help others not feel so lonely in their journey through life. I believe when we feel connected, we can be our truest selves. I am lucky to have a front row seat to watching others grow and change. It truly is a gift that I have much gratitude for.
I have been featured on The Kindred Voice, St. Louis Mom, and Trail Sisters. When I'm not busy working, you can find me camping with my family, running trail ultramarathons, and reading a good book.
I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) under supervision for my Clinical Social Work License. I have my undergraduated degree in social work from Baylor University and my master's degree in social work from top-rated Washington University in St. Louis. I have also taught in higher education (both full time and as an adjunct) since 2008.
