Meet Laura Gandy, BS, MA in Counseling Candidate
I understand that life can be challenging. Using evidence-based and client-focused therapies, my passion is to help you feel empowered and find clarity to know how to move forward and through those challenges. I believe sharing your story with someone is an incredibly brave thing to do, and I do not take it lightly. I am hopeful that together, you will be able to feel whole and worthy to live freely again.
Interested in working with both adults and teens, I am interested in helping clients address anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship challenges, high levels of stress, postpartum mental health, dynamics of third culture experience, and difficulty adjusting to various life situation and stages.
Additionally, I love engaging with Third Culture Kids and Adult TCKs. Being one myself, I have a deep understanding and connection to the TCK experience. It can be difficult to express your experience to your family and those around you, especially if your experiences left you with grief or trauma. I extend to you a safe place to process your experience.
I also love working with Mothers. Maternal mental health is too often overlooked in our culture and medical systems. As a mother myself, I understand that caring for your child is your top priority, but you are also worthy of advocacy. I hope we can grow in strength and purpose together as you navigate the complexities of motherhood.
I draw from the following theories in my work with clients: EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused, Person-Centered, Strength Based, and Motivational Interviewing.
