Pre-Licensed Clinican

Lara works individually with adolescent and adult clients from various cultural backgrounds with a range of psychotherapy issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief, trauma, stress, esteem and identity issues, phase of life adjustments and aging, obsessive-compulsive disorders, attachment and codependency issues, addiction/dependency, sexual dysfunction, anger management, college/career counseling, women's issues, men’s issues, parenting, and Christian/Faith-Oriented counseling. Lara also provides pre-marital counseling and therapy for couples with relationship concerns ranging from communication, infidelity, trust, and conflict to parenting/co-parenting and the merging of homes. Lara is an ally of many groups, including veterans and military families, LGBTQ+, non-binary persons, caregivers, and persons with autoimmune disorders. Trained from a trauma-informed lens, Lara employs a non-judgmental, holistic approach to therapy, seeking to honor and support the unique elements that make up and impact each client's life, integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Solution-Focused, Narrative, Mindfulness-based, and Internal-Family Systems therapies, among others. Philosophically, she believes you are the expert of your own life, with unique strengths that can be uncovered and empowered to solve problems, improve relationships, reach personal goals, and thrive in the best version of yourself!
