About Laura Robinson, MA, LPC Registered Intern in State of Oregon

Compassion & Expertise 

Compassion and expertise have combined in Laura’s career as a counselor. When you come to counseling you want to be able to trust that the person you have chosen to confide in in is knowledgable and experienced in the issues you need help with. I am guessing you are also 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 seeks to honor both partner’s experience of their relationship, and work to foster emotional connection, understanding, and healing within that relationship. 

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

As human beings, Laura believes that we’re all doing our best to make our way through life. We all need to feel supported and connected to ourselves and the important relationships around us. Sometimes professional help is needed to bring clarity to places in your life where you are stuck, and to offer support and knowledge about how to move forward. 

Laura is a graduate of George Fox University’s Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. Laura enjoys helping her clients work through issues such as anxiety disorders, relationship wounds, depression, mood management, and trauma, as well as personal-development, self-esteem work, and spirituality. It’s extremely rewarding for Laura to witness people growing and beginning to thrive in their mental health and in their relationships. 

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.”
