Her Professional Journey

Laura received her Bachelor of Arts degree with Honours in Psychology from York University in Toronto, ON and went on to obtain her Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from McGill University in Montreal, QC. She completed her internship through McGill's Psychoeducational & Counselling Clinic, providing counselling and therapy to high school and university students in Montreal.

While completing her B.A. Honours in Psychology, Laura volunteered with TransCare Community Support Services, formerly Scarborough Support Services, by providing informal counselling and assistance to those who were in need of emotional support due to illness, disability and functional limitations related to aging.

After completing university, Laura moved back to Toronto and began a career at Kinark Child & Family Services as a Multisystemic Therapist in the MST Program. An intensive family- and community-based treatment program that focused on addressing all environmental systems that impacted chronic and violent juvenile offenders - their homes and families, schools and teachers, neighbourhoods and friends.

In 2010, she began serving York Region in Private Practice by providing individuals, couples and families therapeutic and mental health services, and in 2015 named this practice EnerTherapy as she had integrated energetic treatments and techniques to aid in healing.

Laura has additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Family Systems Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Trauma Informed Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Soul Psychology.
