"As a couple, my husband and I are totally in love and happy.  We have been nurturing our safe and connected attachment like you taught us, and it is the biggest gift of all. I think I can speak for both he and I when I say we have to pinch ourselves to believe how abundant life is for us.  I'm tearing up at the thought of it.  What a miracle.  We are forever grateful we found you and got to do the work that gave us the marriage we have today."

"We are big fans of Emotionally Focused Couples Counseling as Laurie practices it. We'd gotten stuck in a rut in our marriage, and Laurie's active and sensitive listening and great insights showed us ways to listen to each other when we believed we'd heard it all already. Laurie's use of this method guided us to speak less from disappointment and anger and more from our heart, leading us to reaffirm our love and care for each other. Laurie's way of working is not only effective, it's efficient. We were ready to practice on our own after only ten sessions, with occasional tune-ups" ~D&D, Longmont

"Laurie's presentation is wonderful. She is dynamic, sensitive to everyone's needs, and very personable."

"Laurie showed us that any marriage takes work. We had lost the ability to be kind to each other and communicate effectively. Laurie has given us tools to move past our resentment and frustration to not only love each other but like each other again. Her support and encouragement has been unparalleled. Without her we would not have been able to break our harmful patterns and get back on track."

"With meaningful material, Laurie provides techniques that enhance everyday living."

"Laurie is great! Her special gift is that she models how to let go and live in the moment. She allows.."

"Laurie has helped me deal with life's challenges in a healthy way. I feel God led me to her. She has been so instrumental in my life; an angel sent by God."

"I was as skeptical as anyone that a procedure so simple, requiring so little time could be so effective. I was terrified of water that was over my head so taking scuba lessons seemed insane. I barely made it through the confined water classes and totally freaked out on my first open water dive, and quit. Laurie taught me a Thought Field Therapy algorithm, and presto! My water phobia was gone. I breezed through my confined water review course and completed twelve open water dives within the next two and a half weeks. It worked for me."
