Laura Root, LCSW

As a therapist my job is to provide a safe and compassionate environment for you to explore the difficult and painful parts of your life. I am committed to helping you face those challenges so you can discover ways to live a full and meaningful life. I have 15 years experience working alongside people with various challenges and issues. I specialize in treating adults and adolescents with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, grief and loss, LGBTQ issues, life transitions, stress, and the emotional and mental impact of medical issues. I utilize a combination of cognitive/behavioral therapy, mindfulness techniques, EMDR, solution focused and person-centered therapeutic interventions.
