Getting to know Laura
Laura grew up in Plano and has lived in Texas since the age of three. She married her high school sweetheart and has three children - two grown and one that believes that he is. Laura has had many jobs over the years – graphic designer, headhunter, curriculum writer, barista and now counselor – but one thing all her jobs had in common was that they were centered around making connections with people and building relationship.
Maintaining a marriage of 28 years and raising three kids has taught Laura that life can be messy… and that’s ok. Her passion is to help families become strong teams that can learn how to face life’s challenges together. Whether the focus is marriage counseling, family therapy or counseling for children and teens the goal is to help build stronger communication, trust and respect in relationships.
Laura developed a passion for helping families when she was working with the youth group at her church. As her oldest child started to approach high school graduation, Laura went back to school to get her Masters in Counseling at Dallas Baptist University, graduating in 2016. During her last year of school, Laura worked at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County as a counselor for families, teens and children who had been impacted by trauma, abuse or neglect.
When she isn’t working, Laura likes to travel with her family to watch her youngest son compete in paintball tournaments. She has also recently tapped back into her art background through photography and is enjoying taking photos at her son’s events.
