Laurels kindness and gentleness makes for a safe place to do the work. You go at your pace, fast or slow.
I have been seeing Laurel for a little less than 2 years. The work we have done in that time has changed my life. None of it has been easy but the way it’s changed my life is incredible. After the particularly harder weeks she Laurel has made herself available outside of my appointment time, which says to me she really cares about her clients. Laurels kindness and gentleness makes for a safe place to do the work. You go at your pace, fast or slow.

With deep compassion, kindness and exquisite skill
I am amazed by the impact of the work I’ve done with Laurel. I have uncovered and addressed decades old traumas that have informed my self-esteem and my choices. With deep compassion, kindness and exquisite skill, Laurel has guided me in identifying and healing childhood traumas. This is not talk therapy. This is healing therapy. My life looks different today as a direct result of the work I’ve done with Laurel. I am deeply grateful and in awe of the work Laurel facilitates.
Our therapy work together was the final step in healing wounds of the past.
For me, our therapy was the final step in healing wounds of the past. Traditional counseling of today helps you identify the wounds. But this work not only identifies problem areas, it provides the tools to take ACTION to eliminate them. I would recommend this therapy to anyone troubled with past childhood issues and traumas.

Even my family doctor noticed a big difference in me

I was able to address painful experiences in my youth that were affecting my adult life
I had nothing but positive experiences working with Laurel Fraser. Sometimes the work was hard, but Laurel guides you and is sensitive and kind. With Laurel’s help, I was able to address painful experiences in my youth that were affecting my adult life. There were some obvious things, and some things that were hidden, and I didn’t even know they were bothering me. But, they were all affecting me, and how I dealt with daily issues. I had so much depression and anxiety, I couldn’t even sit still, and crying was a daily occurrence. Now, I have freedom and relief. There is such a weight that comes off your shoulders when a small problem isn’t blown into a huge ordeal. There are still hard times that come, but now I know hard and bad times will always pass – they are no longer an ominous creature that looms over me constantly. I can deal with these hard situations better, and I am in control of my own life, instead of having my problems control me.
It has been significantly more effective than traditional talk therapy for me.
I have found this work to be a valuable tool in resolving childhood issues. It has helped me recognize and resolve some of the behaviors that were related to my childhood traumas and were working against me in my life. I highly recommend this as a form of treatment as it has been significantly more effective than traditional talk therapy for me.
These “voices” used to tell me I was not capable, competent, beautiful, worthy, etc
When I started this work I had spent most of my life with low self-esteem. I was able to realize the sources of this low self-esteem and find an effective way to banish the “voices” associated with it. These “voices” used to tell me I was not capable, competent, beautiful, worthy, etc. It is a wonderful feeling to know that I am all of those things, and this treatment has increased my confidence dramatically.
