About Laura  

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, MFC 53156. I have a BA in Human Development with a minor in Comparative World Literature, which I received from California State University Long Beach. I have a MS in counseling which I received from California State University Fullerton. In addition to those degrees, I have a certification in play therapy from the University California of San Diego, and I am a Registered Play Therapist through the Association of Play Therapy. I have had many hours of extra training on how to bring a unique counseling experience to people, through play, art, music, and other forms of therapy. 

I have had years of experience working with children, pre-teens and teenagers, along with their families. Some of the problems I can help with include:

  • Trauma
  • Crime victims or witness of violent crime
  • Behavior and emotional problems
  • Family transitions
  • Adjustment difficulties
  • ADHD
  • Developmental Difficulties
