Under Clinical Supervision

Laura Turner, Mental Health Counselor - Limited Permit, PC014900 is practicing under the supervision of Kathi Hannon (Pennsylvania, LMHC, PC014900) at Resilience Lab.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

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

The human condition is fascinating to me. Why do we feel so deeply? How do we connect with others? What is grief? What is love? What drew me to counseling was understanding the deeper emotion-based answers. Once I learned about connection, trauma, vulnerability, and trust, I found that I could connect deeper with my loved ones and heal old wounds as well. Now I share this knowledge with others because everyone deserves healing. My hope for this world is that through mindfulness, self-awareness, and gratitude, we can heal with one another and reach our greatest potential.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Authenticity is central to what I do. If it works for you, I may cuss as a form of expression. I’ll lovingly call you on your BS and have an honest conversation about your barriers to success. Expect me to integrate (my) self strategically. If I can't bring all of me to the table, how can I expect you to? My goal is to create a vulnerable space for healing.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

I'm curious, creative, and I love music. I even played in the marching band for 8 years and flute/piccolo for 12. Incorporating music is one of my favorite interventions to use with folks because it’s a visceral experience that often brings us insight about ourselves and emotions that aren’t always in our awareness. It’s played a significant role in my healing journey and I like using this modality with clients, too. I’m lighthearted, warm, and use humor when appropriate. It's really important that my clients feel connected to me and that I’m not the stereotypical blank face, "and how do you feel about that" therapist. I am first a listener but second an educator. A big part of my role is teaching my clients how the brain works and how things impact their mental health. I also make space for clients to share their inner wisdom to guide us to conclusions. That said, I don’t mind speaking more directly if a client is needing decisional support or guidance.

Work History

The majority of my work has been through my local Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital. During my time there, I’ve provided psychological testing, anxiety work, grief work, medicine management, safety planning, tobacco cessation, substance use groups, and short-term interventions. I’v also worked in private practice—specifically with couples' related issues in the kink, sex worker allied, and LGBTQIA+ communities—and have experience providing therapy in an inpatient setting providing group therapy. Today, I’m a proud member of Resilience Lab, the largest community of clinicians working collaboratively to improve mental health access and outcomes. We’re a mental health collective of more than 200 clinicians offering flexible, personalized care virtually to help you navigate life transitions, gain new insights, and carve out a space where you can focus on yourself and your growth.
