I Believe

I believe in helping you work through the barriers to living your happiest and most fulfilled life. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who are affected by childhood experiences. I have worked for years with survivors of childhood physical and sexual abuse as well as other traumatic experiences. I use a person-centered, trauma-informed, strengths based approach based on the issues you identify as being important to work on. I am honored to join you on your journey to live authentically. I'm a Certified Daring Way(TM) Facilitator - Candidate and I use this shame resiliency model, which is based on the research of Bren'e Brown, PhD in my work with adolescents and adults. I work with children as young as four years of age using Child-Centered Play Therapy. I have advanced training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I would love to talk about how we can work together!

About Laura Reagan

Is something missing in your life? Have you considered finding a counselor or therapist but you don't know where to begin? I would like to help you identify the issues standing in the way of your sense of happiness and well-being and work through them so you can live your best life!

Various things can drive someone to consider therapy. Maybe you question whether you are good enough, even when outwardly you have a successful life. Or you feel that nobody knows the real you - and if they did, they wouldn't like what they see. Maybe you wish you had a better emotional connection with the people in your life. Perhaps your child is struggling with conflicts with peers or excessive worries and sadness. Or your teenager is struggling to fit in. Any of these reasons, and many others, lead people to decide they want help to feel better. Contact me to discuss how I can help you or your child work through these issues and find the sense of contentment that's been missing.

I have worked in schools and in the community providing individual and family therapy to children, adolescents and adults who have experienced traumatic events since 2009 and before that I helped people who were in crisis due to sexual or domestic violence beginning in 2002. I specialize in helping people who are having difficulty with friendship and/or romantic relationships, strained relationships with their families of origin, poor self-esteem, anxiety, depression, difficulty coping, grief and loss, attachment issues and life transitions. I have helped numerous clients heal from the trauma of witnessing or experiencing intimate partner violence; childhood emotional, physical or sexual abuse and/or neglect, and sexual violence in adulthood.

I love helping people find the happiness within themselves and achieve their fullest lives, with the meaning and sense of contentment they have been missing. I have seen so many clients recover from traumatic experiences within relatively short periods of time and learn the skills to help them cope with difficulties over a lifetime. I am passionate about the power of therapy to give individuals the tools needed to work through the issues which are holding them back from the lives they want.

If this sounds like something you need, please give me a call for a free phone consultation! You can also find out more about my services by visiting my website: www.laurareaganlcswc.com. I hope to hear from you soon!
