I’ve known Laura for more than twenty years through our studies in Psychosynthesis. I’ve been working with her off and on ever since. Laura is a wonderful practitioner. She’s trained in a number of different bodywork modalities, including Polarity and Cranio-Sacral Therapy, and has a variety of different skills. She’s also trained as a psychotherapist. So whatever the issue is that I want to work on, whether it’s physical or psychological, she has a graceful and sophisticated response.
But there’s something else even more important that makes Laura good at what she does. She’s an excellent listener. Whenever I tell her about an issue I’m dealing with, she enters my model of the world, she empathizes with me. Once she’s really listened and understood my experience her insights and suggestions often point me in a new and fruitful direction. As a result, I’ve grown and benefited tremendously from working with Laura over the years.

I first started seeing Laura 15 years ago for relief from the discomfort of fibromyalgia. At first I was a little wary of touch therapies but found her gentle and non-invasive approach very reassuring and effective in relieving my muscle pain and tightness. Through her work I was able to recognize when I was tense and to recall the sense of peace and relaxation I achieved during sessions. Laura has been a great resource for many, many years.

However depleted or stressed I am when I arrive, I always leave feeling relaxed, energized, and calm. I especially respect Laura’s commitment to the therapeutic art she practices. And I totally enjoy and appreciate her commitment to my well-being during our sessions.

Laura incorporates a wealth of experience, sensitivity, and intuition, all which serve her well in her unique and very special bodywork. These qualities combine and instruct her touch, creating a space of warmth, safety, and healing. Laura’s presence is filled with a compassion and courage that is rare to this world. Her gentle loving touch, verbal encouragement, and thoughtful insights all work together to help me locate and heal some very old energy blocks, guide me through a haze of noise and pain, and help me find my voice. Before I met Laura I was a brain attached to a body. Now I am a light in this world with a more authentic sense of self and a deeper understanding of what it means to be human. My life has been infinitely blessed as a result of the time I have spent with Laura and the journey we took together.

Laura has done bodywork on me during critical years of major change. Her approach to bodywork is not invasive, done with a quietness and gentleness that is respectful of my privacy and helps me feel safe. She has an ability to listen deeply and ask astute questions with a loving heart that help extract and highlight the essence of a difficulty. Then she expertly releases the clogged pathways with her light touch as she moves around different parts of the body. Her touch is healing and gives me the boost I need to move forward with clarity and renewed energy. I feel aligned when I leave.

I feel graced to have received bodywork from Laura. Easily I was able to relax deeply from the touch of her soft, knowing hands. She consistently created a safe environment from which to listen to my body’s wisdom, leaving me feeling more grounded, understood, and renewed. Laura’s gentle presence, experience, wisdom, and ability to listen have enhanced my commitment to self-healing.
