Laura Scales, LMFT

It is my hope to bring genuine healing and wholeness to individuals, couples, and families. I work with people of all ages and backgrounds who want to change how they manage conflict, mental or physical health issues, and stressful life events. I have been trained in many evidence-based therapeutic modalities, which enables me to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, grief, intrusive and distressing thoughts, mood disturbances, personality disorders, relationship and family issues, anger management, substance use, body image issues, and people who have experienced trauma.

I believe the more we understand ourselves, the more closely we are connected to others, the happier we feel and the more personal satisfaction we have in our lives. If you have come to a time and place in your life in which you are feeling stuck, I am going to suggest we begin our work together by learning and practicing self-acceptance, self- compassion, and self-love.

Therapy is for people who want to improve their lives, change things that are not working, learn better ways to cope, strengthen relationships, find relief from suffering, and begin a journey of hope and healing. You can expect to be heard, to receive my help in clarifying goals and for our time together to be safe, supportive and confidential.
