I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in Texas with 9 years of experience working as a counselor. I have a passion for working with people and walking with them through their life experiences and to help them toward their identified goals.
I see counseling as a safe place to address the thoughts about ourselves and the world and to evaluate how these thoughts impact our emotions and behaviors. I utilize the counseling process to strengthen coping skills, thought-changing skills, as well as conflict resolution and communication skills.
I utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing techniques. I also have experience in the areas of chemical dependency, relational issues, as well as trauma. I see the process of counseling as one that is relational and collaborative. It is through counseling that we get the opportunity to see how we view ourselves, relate with others, and respond to the challenges of life.

Laura Edmonds has really helped me improve my life and way of thinking. Before my sessions with her, I was drowning in my grief and depression. I viewed so many things in a negative light and felt like some of my past memories were haunting me. Laura helped me reshape my thinking and has helped me gain some much needed closure.

Talking with Laura every week and being able to talk through things I'm going through and have her guidance and thoughts connecting my life together and highlighting insights has been completely indespensable. I look forward to our sessions every week and it's great to catch up and talk about whatever is on my mind that day and what I've been struggling with. To have a completely judgement free safe space to talk about your deepest fears, things you may be scared to tell anyone else is so freeing and comforting. I cant be thankful enough to have found and made this great relationship with Laura.
