“You must really like people.” That was the response from one of Laura’s colleagues when in 2011 she announced that she was leaving her 17-year career with the multinational oil company Royal Dutch Shell. Laura first made the career leap as a Marriage Coach before moving on to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and psychotherapist in the state of Texas. In 2013, Laura graduated with honors from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Masters in Biblical Counseling.
Since then, Laura has completed extensive trauma-informed training with TSSNT (Trauma Support Services of North Texas) and is proud to be part of IITAP (International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals), where she completed certifications as Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT), and Certified Multiple Addictions Therapist (CMAT) in Financial Disorders. Laura has also completed training in Grief Counseling, Suicide Intervention, and is EMDR-trained—an evidenced-based intervention for complex trauma under the governing body EMDRIA.
Over the years Laura has worked with a variety of clients including children and adolescents, couples, individuals, and group therapy. As a volunteer and part-time staff she spent seven years at Dallas Life Foundation—a 300-bed residential homeless shelter in Dallas where she completed a significant part of her internship in counseling, case management, and group work in Anger Management and Women’s Issues. Laura has also facilitated group therapy and workshops for depression and anxiety, marriage, and grief. One highlight of her career was the opportunity to consult for the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. during the COVID pandemic to address mental health needs of affected tourism workers.
Laura’s true passion is her work with couples, addressing issues of infidelity, betrayal trauma, problematic sexual behaviors, attitudes towards money, and conflict and communication. She is a strong believer that healthy individuals make strong homes and families, and legacy contributors to our communities.
Laura relocated from her home Barbados and is married to Brett since 2007. She is mother, stepmother, and grandmother to Jade, Julia, and Jessie.
