a resource for hope, healing & healthy relationships
Hi! I'm Laura. I have a heart for helping people pursue relational wellness and personal growth & healing.
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. Counseling can often help 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, counseling can be a way to bring hope to any stage of their relationship, from dating through engagement, marriage, and parenting, with the goal of increasing loving kindness and decreasing stress and conflict. I help couples prepare for marriage and also work with couples who need help repairing marriages that are hurting.
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’ve always loved helping people and consider it a deep privilege to see hope growing in my clients as they experience positive changes in their lives.
