Hello! I am so happy that you have found my page. First, let me introduce myself. My name is Laura and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. If you are saying “a licensed what?” here is a great link about MFTS explaining who we are and what we do.
Okay, so now that you know what an MFT is (as I am sure you clicked that link and are in awe of the amazingness that is a Marriage and Family Therapist) let me tell you a little about myself and my practice.
I own a private practice in South Windsor and focus most of my work on treating postpartum and perinatal mood disorders in women and couples. I love working with the transitions into parenthood and the way that it changes both the individuals and the couple. I work as well with couples who are generally speaking in conflict, not necessarily only postpartum. I find couple’s work both challenging and rewarding, but overall a lot of fun. I also enjoy working with clients on an individual basis to help in any transitions of life issues. If you aren’t sure if you and I would be a good fit, contact me and we can talk more about it!
When I am not doing therapy or being in therapy myself – if you stick with me you will learn I have no qualms about admitting to how my own therapy led me to being a therapist #endthestigma – I enjoy spending time with my husband, and my two beautiful and energetic little girls. I love running and yoga and am a cranky beast without them. I am not myself if I am not currently reading something and I love all things fantasy. Much to my embarrassment as an adult woman, I also enjoy a good RPG (for those not super geeky that would be short for role playing video game) and have been known to get in on my husband’s COD (Call of Duty) games as well.
That’s pretty much it! I hope that this blog is useful in stimulating conversations on the therapy process, on self as therapist, as well as for my current clients to learn, grow, and challenge themselves!
