Areas of focus often include changes in communication style, time management strategies, work or thinking style and health habits. Laura will help you identify self-sabotaging habits and learn new habits that will facilitate connection with people, work, activities and past-times that are meaningful and life-affirming for you.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Laura for nearly five years. During that time, she has helped me better myself both personally and professionally. Laura coaches me on how I can handle difficult situations by talking about my concerns and helping map out a plan toward my desired result. If difficult conversations are necessary, Laura and I will practice having those discussions so that I’m prepared.


Through our work together I have successfully navigated the transition from being a teenager to adulthood. I developed a closer relationships with my parents and began my marriage on the right foot by working to make our partnership as strong as possible. Finally,I’ve worked to maintain a work life balance that allows me to grow my career while also having enough time to fulfill my personal interests."
