Laura always appreciated the fable of the country mouse and the city mouse, having grown up in the rural American south. As a country mouse with a belief in the enduring similarities between all people, she embarked on her education and family building across institutions of higher education and international borders.
She learned early that a human touch, warmth, and curiosity are the building blocks of most trustworthy relationships. Warmth is not all it takes, though. As a clinician, Laura saw that her natural tendencies to observe and relate would be well suited to the work of supporting lasting change.
Laura has worked in small businesses and corporations, meaning she recognizes a wide variety of pressures for clients, many of whom are managing professional stressors. Also, Laura has a family of her own and knows what parenting can be like.
Laura is curious, observant, and analytical in her working style. She pairs questions with empathy and most appreciates the chance to consider how your perceptions affect your daily choices. This clinician empowers her clients.
Laura envisions most of her work over telehealth, thus removing barriers to mental healthcare for more people living in the states of Georgia and Tennessee. She is appreciative of the opportunity to make contact through this medium.
