My name is Laura Nagy. I have a Masters in Agency Counseling and am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Michigan, where I live with my husband and daughter. I have been working in the mental health field since 1995. I have background in crisis counseling, working with depression, anxiety, and OCD, to name a few. I have worked with folks who have concerns around relationship issues, work stressors, career challenges, parenting problems, and family struggles. I have worked with people suffering from PTSD and those who have struggled with suicidal ideation. I also have been certified in and have practiced Equine-Assisted Therapy.
My therapy style is client-centered and solution-focused. I believe that you, the client, should set the goals for therapy. I am available to support, empower, and assist as best I can. I am likely to assign homework to be done in between our sessions, so that we can make the best of our time, and keep moving forward towards achieving your goals. I utilize a strengths-based style, focusing on the courage and strength it took for you to get to this point in your life. I also believe that assisting you in discovering your natural support system will give you the tools you need to continue building your own well-being.
The strength that it took you to reach out for help should be commended. I would love to help you explore what life can give you with peace and a sense of well-being. Together, we can put together a solid set of tools to empower you to continue to make great strides towards wellness. I look forward to working with you.

Laura has helped me through some dark days, she has helped me come out above and beyond those days. I went 6 weeks without seeing her but realized she is someone that I need in my life. I feel very comfortable talking to her.

Fantastic. I received great suggestions and help on how to maintain sobriety and new tools that I either hadn't used before or did not think would work. Laura listens to what I have to say and is very helpful on identifying areas I can improve and how things are going, and how to keep them going well.
