You matter. Your relationship matters. Counseling can help!

Couples start counseling with me for a variety of reasons: to improve communication, to reduce conflict, to understand and change unhealthy patterns, to increase intimacy, to navigate unexpected life challenges… whether your relationship is going through a rough patch or a crisis, couples counseling can be very helpful in changing negative patterns and moving your relationship in the direction you hope for.

Women start counseling with me to learn how to better manage anxiety or depression, to seek help for overwhelm, to learn how to address dissatisfaction in their lives, and 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 and struggles, to identify the parts of your life or relationship you want to change, and to define what that change will look like. 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 identify tangible steps you can take to make the positive changes you long for.

Taking this step is a big one and you deserve it! I’d love to talk more about what you are looking for and how I might be able to help!

Couple’s Counseling in Northwest Denver

Often a third party can be helpful in supporting couples to get through their stuck places (all couples have these, some are more painful than others). I work specifically with couples who are committed to their relationship and have recognized a need to make 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.

Women’s Counseling in Northwest Denver

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.

Teletherapy for all Colorado residents

If getting to the office is a challenge, we can work with that! I offer teletherapy sessions via phone or video chat (using HIPPAA compliant software) for Colorado residents. We can schedule sessions at times that are most convenient for you, such as during your commute to work or on a lunch break. Please let me know if you are interested in this option!

About

Hello!  I’m Laurie.

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’m the oldest of 4 siblings, a 6 on the Enneagram, and an ISFJ on the Meyers-Briggs (if that kind of thing interests you).

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.

I love being a therapist, and for more than 14 years have been providing compassionate and strengths based therapy for individuals, couples and families wanting to make positive changes in their lives and relationships.

My work as a therapist is guided 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 those strengths.  I hold a non-judgmental and hopeful stance in therapy, recognizing we are all doing the best we can with what we have AND we all have the capacity to grow.

When I’m not in sessions, you will find me outside playing with my daughter, reading a book for book club, and trying to keep my plants alive – both indoor and out.

To hear me talk more about my practice and my approach to therapy, check out the interview I did earlier this year with National Broadcast Radio:

  • $140 for a 50 minute individual session
  • $160 for a 50 minute couples session

Longer sessions are available upon request, fees are adjusted according to 50 minute session costs.

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.

Do you offer a reduced rate?

I reserve a couple of slots each week for reduced rate sessions, these are limited in number but please ask me about this option if cost is a barrier.

Do you only see women and couples?

I also work individually with men depending on their specific needs and goals for therapy. If you are a male interested in starting therapy, please reach out so we can talk about whether or not I am a good fit for helping you reach your goals. If we determine I’m not, I will happily provide referrals for other therapists!
