A Chat with Laura Lavoie Counseling
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, body image issues, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, and personality disorders. I use a client-centered approach, focused on your individual needs to help you make powerful changes in your life and decrease unhealthy coping skills.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I have experienced first hand the benefits of working with a skilled therapist and, since then, having my own private practice has been my goal and passion. My hope is to make the therapeutic process meaningful and to help decrease the stigma associated with asking for help.
What do you love most about your job? I love connecting with people and have an insatiable curiosity about human experience. My clients inspire and challenge me every day and for this I am incredibly grateful. My passion is to help my clients create a satisfying and meaningful life of which they are proud.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? Recently, a client told me that I helped her connect her heart to her head for the first time. It was an extremely powerful moment. I also have many clients who continue to stay in touch with me long after our work is completed. Hearing about their triumphs and continued progress is what drives me.
