What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Lara holds a Master's degree in Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University and is working towards clinical licensure in Virginia. She has helped clients with a wide variety of mental health concerns including marital and couples counseling, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, childhood trauma, PTSD, intimate partner abuse, sexual issues, body image issues, gender and sexual orientation issues, grief, ADHD, OCD, and life transitions. Lara believes that one of the primary keys to wellness is emotional safety "? both internal and external. She encourages clients to achieve nervous system regulation through a variety of methods that include interpersonal, emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and body-based techniques. Lara is trained in the body-based clinical methods of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Tapping. She works with clients to access and feel emotions using the therapeutic alliance, inner child techniques, two-chair work, and some guided visualization. In addition, she works with couples using the developmental model for couples therapy and a systems perspective.
