I’d Love to Help
I Have Experience With…
Whether you grew up with an invalidating parent, sibling, or deal with a co-worker, lover, neighbor, or boss, Laura understands how traumatizing this can be and knows what to do to help you bounce back.
Laura doesn’t work with couples because she believes that if you fix what you bring to the issue, most of the problems go away. Want to heal your relationship? Let’s start with you!
Mysterious things are a normal part of reality. If you are dealing with something that has changed you or terrifies you, let’s talk. You don’t have to know what it is, believe in it, or understand it to heal it.
Religious Trauma Syndrome
When religion is dogmatic and extreme, you may need some TLC to get your feet back on the ground and feel a bit normal again. Religious trauma syndrome is a thing. And it can heal.
Anxiety, Stress, and Depression
Did you know that anxiety and depression should not occur at the same time? Yep. Anxiety is nervous system arousal. Depression is the opposite. When they happen at the same time, it’s often a result of PTSD. You could be dealing with complex PTSD. Let’s talk about it.
My Approach & Philosophy
Laura Giles works holistically and gets at the root of the problem so you aren’t coping with issues. You are healing them.
She may approach healing through the body, mind (your thoughts), emotions, or the spirit. Since it’s all connected, there isn’t a right or wrong way, just a more efficient way.
This might mean that we aren’t chasing symptoms. We are going after things you can’t see, but impact your functioning, just the same. You will know it’s working when you feel better.
Healing doesn’t have to take a long time or be hard. If you show up, don’t overthink things, and don’t do too much or too little, your body will heal itself.
