A Conversation With Laura
Why did you choose counseling?
When I first announce to one of my work colleagues that I was leaving a lucrative career as a corporate finance analyst to become a counselor, he commented with a puzzled look, "You must really like people!" It never occurred to me that I shouldn;t but it made me realized how oblivious we can be to the hurt that is around us everyday. Counseling gives me the opportunity and privilege to participate in the transformation of lives-one individual at a time, one family at a time, one community, one city, one country, to reach the whole world.
Why is mental health important?
We experience life through our senses-what we see, hear, feel, smell and taste. All of this is the filtered through our mind. An unhealthy mind will distort the way we process life experiences and affect our decisions, our relationships and quality of life in general. Mental healthy perspectives to our experiences. Only them we can grow, thrive and become meaningful contributors in the world.
What type of therapeutic modality do you use? Why do you use this method?
Person Center Therapy is the foundation that apply as a critical element to connect with every client, regardless of age. Researchers say that he therapeutic relationship provides 60% of the healing that our clients need. From this my therapeutic approches are Trauma-Focused ( I am a Certified Trauma Specialist) and a wide appllication of cognitive Behavioral models.
What areas do you feel you are most qualified in?
Marriage, wiht respect to chronic conflicts and recovery from the trauma of marital infidelity, is an area that I am most passionate about, and to which I 've adopted tools and approaches form the best marriage experts. If I can help couples navigate the most difficult things they will encounster in their relationships, we can save whole families, and set a platform to model to our children how to be more resilient in he face of adversity.
Why did you choose New Horizon?
I was first referred to NHCC by a resident therapist. I stayed after meeting our director Jaime Corona, and seeing and hearing his heart and vision for helping
families. We were on the same page.
