Laura has been working in the field of mental health since 1982. She began her career, prior to her graduate work, counseling women at a women’s health clinic in Dallas, TX. During Laura’s graduate education, she worked in the Department of Neurology at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. Additionally, Laura taught graduate and undergraduate coursework, completed research to revise a major psychological instrument and worked with children in a rural school setting. After receiving her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology at Texas Tech, she moved to Miami, FL. She worked in a variety of settings – locked and open psychiatric units, chemical dependency hospital units and outpatient social services doing psychotherapy and emergency evaluations.
Moving to central Florida (east coast) and getting married, Laura began a career in brain rehabilitation, working in an inpatient facility. Providing psychotherapeutic treatment from a team perspective for TBI (traumatic brain injury), pediatric, ortho-neuro and oncology teams vastly widened Laura’s horizons and advanced her skills.
The neurofeedback chapter of Laura’s life began in 2003 when she joined her husband in his emerging neurofeedback practice. Since that point, Laura has concentrated on children and teens, women and family issues, as diverse as, but not limited to, trauma, TBI, neurodegenerative disorders, anxiety/depression, learning issues, Spasmodic Dysphonia and Misophonia. Using all available tools/techniques from neurofeedback and biofeedback to optimize each individual brain and life in pursuit of health is the goal. It is Laura’s guiding principle that each individual is functioning optimally when the brain, the heart and the gut are all aligned and body, mind and spirit are addressed as parts of the whole.
