We all have times in our lives when we feel stuck, and struggle to resolve our difficulties. Psychotherapy can help us identify and transform the obstacles that block us from being our best possible selves. It will be my privilege to accompany you on your journey. I will offer you a warm, non-judgmental space in which to explore aspects of your life or relationships that you’d like to adjust. Together we’ll examine your personal strengths and resiliencies, and build a plan for change that meets your needs.
My therapeutic approach is collaborative and integrative, grounded in psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural, dialectic behavioural, and existential therapies. My clinical expertise includes supporting individuals, couples, and families with concerns about gender and sexuality, conflict and communication, and physical and emotional intimacy. I have extensive experience working with people of different ethnicities, religious backgrounds, sexualities, gender identities, relationship structures, and sexual practices. Witnessing and guiding your unique process of change is privileged and sacred work. . I am passionate about helping you experience yourself and your relationships in new and meaningful ways.
I am a PhD candidate in the final stages of completing my doctorate in counselling psychology at McGill University. My clinical work is supervised by Dr. Shawna Atkins, a psychologist registered with the Order of Psychologists of Quebec.
My research focuses on how identities and familial relationships are influenced when a change occurs in the gender of one of its members. In my free time, I cultivate joy through my involvement in music.
“My relationship with Laura has helped me to look honestly at myself. She has gently guided me toward better understanding my relational patterns in a non-judgmental and safe manner. Thanks to her I’ve been able to build healthier and happier connections in my life.”
