Laura counts it a privilege to be present with people in their struggles. She helps people on their journey to find healing, purpose, and contentment in life. Her goal is to increase her clients’ own level of empowerment, so they find the resilience to return from adversity, loss, and pain.

She is excited to watch the transformation process as people find solutions to walk in peace instead of despair, and know happiness and joy instead of pain, shame, and suffering. Laura utilizes EMDR with those dealing with traumas from life (particularly women and adolescent girls).

Since healing is often done through relationship, Laura also leads Support Groups and works in conjunction with Darrell Rhines offering a unique approach of co-therapy for couples, families, and those considering marriage. Laura has served clients at the Safe House of Seminole, The Salvation Army, and facilitates support groups at a local university.

Laura has a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Palm Beach Atlantic University.

Laura and Darrell Rhines currently lead a monthly group called “LGBTQ+ Family and Friends Support Group.” If you have a family member or friend who has “come out” identifying as part of the LGBTQ+ community, please call 407-701-5990 for information on this confidential, judgment-free support group.
