Laura Nelson

What is your story? How often do you feel heard? If you’re human, your story is complicated, beautiful, messy, and real. Every person deserves to feel heard and understood. Therapy can be a safe space to tell, process, and re-write your story, no matter how complicated or difficult. I will listen to your story without judgment and will work with you to develop a plan of healing and growth for you that is as unique as your own story.

I believe that you are the expert in your own experience. As your clinician, I will look to your values as a guide in co-creating goals with you to help you move toward healing.
My approach is narrative, strengths-based, and incorporates mindfulness and somatic techniques. My practice is also informed by my experience in forestry, environmental education, and vocal coaching. I work with youth and adults under the supervision of a licensed professional clinical counselor.
