Laura Jones is known for being centered and grounded. People say that just sitting with her in session has a calming effect. She helps people with trauma, eating disorders, anxiety and marginalized identities to feel safe, supported and understood.
Laura’s approach to trauma work is centered on creating a feeling of safety. She wants therapy to be a space where you can really talk without worrying about judgment or criticism. Once this feeling of safety is really deeply established, then treatment can move towards processing the trauma and, finally, reintroducing vitality, creativity and meaning into life.
Eating Disorder Treatment
Laura believes that it’s possible to find freedom from the critical, negative voices about your body. She believes that all bodies are beautiful and worthy of care. Through DBT-informed therapy and art and image-based techniques, she can help you find your way back to lovingly nourishing your body.
Being “out” for Laura has meant freedom from shame and willingness to embrace all of who she really is. She is aware of the difficulties of having a marginialized identity in a homophobic & transphobic culture and sees supporting people who hold these identities as an important part of her mission.
