A graduate of the Pierce College Addictions Studies Program, Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner, and bodyworker, Laura has worked in stress, pain management, and self-regulation for over 25 years. She is trained in many bodywork styles, starting with her first love, Esalen Massage®, then craniosacral therapy and Ortho-Bionomy®.
Laura uses Somatic Experiencing®, bodywork, and NeuroAffective Touch® to treat attachment and developmental trauma. Her understanding of developmental trauma has been deepened by her study of Bodynamics, The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), and Kathy Kain's Touch Training for Therapists and Resilient Child series.
Laura believes life is a course of study and the body its textbook. In her work with clients, she finds that the road leads back to one's unique blueprint. Utilizing her somatic menu of interventions, Laura provides missing connections that support emotional, physical, and psychological stability and healing.
Laura maintains a private practice in Los Angeles, where she supports clients in the exploration of somatic awareness and helps them experience the body as home.
