Laura Havey (LCSW) - 23 Years Experience

Clients often seek out therapy because they are experiencing significant discomfort in their lives. I feel that this discomfort is often a healthy way of letting us know that we may be open to change. Change begins with recognizing our patterns of behaving and relating to others in our lives, and examining patterns of behavior that may not be in our best interest. I think this is best done in a caring and encouraging environment where the client feels heard, respected, and understood. I strive to be client focused and responsive to my client's changing needs during the process...
