Laura Shute, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Do you sense that something in your life needs to change, but you don’t know where to start?

When stressors or challenges arise, we can lose touch with our identity, values and instinctive resourcefulness. The best part of being a clinician for me,  is supporting clients to discover their own strengths and skills. In sessions, I work to understand your story in depth and empower you to build self-compassion. Collaboratively, we will identify both helpful and unhelpful patterns. I provide support with your needs and priorities being the central focus.

Are you wondering if therapy can make a meaningful difference in your life?

My clients would describe me as caring, thoughtful, open-minded, patient and flexible. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am comfortable addressing family dynamics, whether working with an individual, couple or family. I would describe my style as trauma-informed and strength-based. I have been a practicing therapist for nine years, working with a wide range of populations and diagnosis. I am confident in saying that being a therapist is my life’s work!

Has your child or your teenager been impacted by life transitions, trauma, or other challenges?

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is  providing  children and teens a safe space to express their authentic emotions and needs. When youth are heard and affirmed by their support system, they can achieve self- acceptance and overcome barriers. I will join with you and your child to challenge negative judgements and acquire positive strategies that suit your family. Together, we can assist your child to thrive and gain confidence.
