Laura Olivieri Wood, MSC, LAC, NCC
As a Licensed Associate Counselor, training in EMDR, I have personal and professional experience working with trauma. I've learned that the past so often dictates our future distress, action, and inaction if we let it. I'd like to work with you to help you put the past behind you, and shift your perspective to the future.
Since 2016, I have been working with adults and adolescents who have struggled with trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction, legal trouble, relationship issues and other challenges.
I chose to become a counselor about 10 years ago when I began my life as a single mom. My goal was to create a program that helps teens transition to adulthood with the right tools in their toolbelt. I spent a couple of years working with adults in and out of the correctional system, and enjoyed helping people turn their lives around. This experience also helped me realize what life-skills were consistently missing among that population and is driving me to focus on early intervention and prevention with our youth program: Level Up, In Real Life.
As a busy mom and professional, I understand that it is often difficult to fit time in for appointments. During your consultation, we will discuss all possible methods for therapy including evening and weekend appointments, video or phone sessions. It's a privilege to be part of your journey towards achieving your personal goals.
I work evenings and weekends so that I'm available when you are.
Monday - Thursday: 6pm - 9pm
