Laura Robinson, MA, LPC Intern

Compassion & Expertise

When you come to counseling you want to be able to trust that the person you have chosen to confide in is knowledgeable and experienced in the areas you need help with. You are also probably looking for someone who deeply cares; a counselor who will invest in learning about your mental health history and life story. Laura’s aim is to do both. 

While working with couples, Laura’s goal is to provide therapy that gets to the root of that couple’s disconnection and works to foster emotional connection and healthy attachment within that relationship. 

With individuals, Laura strives to meet people in their pain. Through compassionate talk-therapy, including trauma-informed therapy and skill-based interventions as needed, Laura joins with her clients to facilitate change and increase their sense of well-being.

Laura is a graduate of George Fox University’s Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. Laura’s presence in therapy is kind, compassionate, and open. She sincerely believes that the things we think about ourselves and the patterns we have in our relationships with others deeply impact the course and quality of our lives.  

It can feel vulnerable to face the pain of broken or damaged relationships, as well as past traumas and life experiences. But as Brene Brown said, “Owning our story can be hard, but not nearly as hard as spending our lives running from it.”
