Hi! I’m Laura

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
As a Licensed Associate Counselor, trained in Structural Dissociation and an approved EMDR provider, I have personal and professional experience working with complex trauma and dissociative processes. 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.

When I chose to become a counselor, my goal was to create a program that helps teens transition to adulthood with the right tools in their toolbelt. I spent a few years working with adults in and out of the correctional system, and enjoyed helping people turn their lives around. This experience helped me realize what life-skills were consistently missing and drove me to focus on early intervention and prevention by creating a youth program: Level Up, In Real Life

At Benavieri Counseling, I provide individual counseling services for teens and young adults, digital self-care strategies for anyone looking to start improving their quality of life, in-person group program for teens and young adults, and an online course to develop personal self-identity, interpersonal skills, and confidence to lay the framework for a success throughout your lifetime.
