a resource for hope, healing & healthy relationships
Hi! I'm Laura. I have a heart for helping people feel their best. My goal is to be a resource for hope, healing and healthy relationships.
I founded Hopeful Outlook to help couples have relationships that thrive, to help parents build strong families, and to help individuals figure out what's limiting their sense of well-being so they can begin to feel better. I believe that a hopeful outlook is possible for everyone!
Hope is possible because there are many effective counseling methods that help relieve suffering and promote individual, relational and spiritual wellness. My Living Free program helps individuals heal from relational hurts or other emotional burdens that are contributing to symptoms like sadness, anxiety, depression, loneliness, and fear. I also help individuals work through the question, “Am I Relationship Ready?”
For couples, my Marriage Planning & More program is designed to bring hope to all stages of relationships, from dating through engagement, marriage, and parenting, with the goal of increasing loving kindness, and decreasing stress and conflict.
In my work, I've found that my clients love learning about how their personality type impacts their daily life and relationships. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can be useful for this purpose, as can the Enneagram. The goal of these tools is to help people gain insight that allows them to enjoy life more and relate better to others at home and at work.
Prior to becoming a counselor, I worked with individuals and families as a trusted financial advisor. I have a heart for helping people cope with the challenges they face in their daily lives, and enjoy helping them find a path to the peace, comfort, and joy they’re seeking.
