Welcome!

You deserve to feel better and counseling can help.

There are a variety of reasons women and couples start therapy with me:  to improve communication, to reduce conflict, to understand and change unhealthy patterns, to better manage anxiety or depression, to increase life satisfaction, and so many more…

Whatever your reason for reaching out, I applaud you for doing it!

In therapy, with a compassionate and non-judgmental stance, we will work together to better understand your pain, frustration or struggles and identify the parts of your life or relationship you want to makes changes or improve upon. We will spend time looking closely at what is working well in your life and build off of your unique and inherent strengths as an individual or couple, in order to make the positive changes you long for.

Again, I applaud your decision to take this first step!

Contact me through my contact page here on this website, or through email at laurie@lauriearnoldlmft.com, phone call or text at (720) 460-0501 – whichever method you are most comfortable with – and we will talk about what you are looking for and how counseling might be able to help!

About

cropped-headshotlinkedin.jpgHello!  I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist here in my beautiful home state of Colorado, where I live with my husband, daughter and our goofy golden doodle, Macaroni.

I received my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific University in 2004 and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado in 2001.

For more than 12 years I have been providing compassionate and strengths based therapy for individuals, couples and families who are hoping to make changes in their lives and relationships.

I have extensive experience supporting clients in navigating through painful and difficult periods of life. My desire is to help clients address the areas of their lives that are causing disappointment or dissatisfaction and make needed changes  in those areas.  I work primarily with clients who express a desire to improve their relationships or to change addictive or destructive thoughts and behavior patterns in order to achieve increased joy, peace and satisfaction for themselves and their loved ones.

My work as a therapist is driven by my belief that every person has inherent strengths and the best way to achieve the goals you set for yourself in therapy and in life is to build off of these strengths.  I take a non-judgmental and hopeful stance in therapy, recognizing that we are all doing the best we can with what we have, but once we know better we can also do better.

Services

Women’s Counseling

For every woman, no matter what age, there are times when extra support is essential. Therapy is a gift you can give yourself during these times. In therapy, we may talk about life transitions, relationships, depression, anxiety, pressure, disappointment, addiction, body image, sexuality, pregnancy, grief, loss, hopes and dreams… no topics are off limits and I will always support you in going where you need to go during our time together. You deserve support for whatever it is you are working through.

Couple’s Counseling

Often a third party can be helpful in supporting couples to get through their stuck places (and all couples have these). I work specifically with couples who are committed to their relationship and have recognized a need to make some changes. I help couples make these desired changes by increasing their understanding of each other’s perspectives, improving communication, identifying their strengths as a couple, and building on those strengths to create new ways of interacting that serve them better.

What is the cost of therapy?

My fee is $140 for a 50 minute therapy session for individuals and $160 for a 50 minute therapy session for couples.

I accept cash, check, credit card, or paypal.

Can I use my insurance? How does insurance work?

I do not accept insurance, but I am able to provide you with a receipt and any necessary paperwork if you choose to submit claims to your insurance provider for seeing me as an Out of Network Provider.

I recommend contacting your insurance provider to ask about Out of Network reimbursement options with your plan.
