Laura is skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which helps individuals change their own thinking, and manage challenging emotions. Laura also frequently utilizes Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), an evidence based intervention which is shown to increase awareness of thoughts, urges and feelings, increase one’s ability to cope with intense emotions, and decrease impulsivity. Incorporating DBT techniques in one’s life often translates into increased self- concept, improved communication, healthier relationships, and a more meaningful existence.
