" I am so overwhelmed with gratitude for yesterday's session.

It was amazing and completely life-changing." 

Julia Goodall



I have been working with Lara for almost two years and I can honestly say that my life has been utterly transformed during that time. She has accompanied me with great compassion and with an unwavering strength into the depths of my soul to identify and release what has been weighing me down for most of my life. Lara is deeply empathic, insightful, knowledgeable, and skillful beyond belief. I cannot say enough about how profoundly her

work has affected my life.”

~ David Kelmendi, Santa Rosa, CA

“I came to this work with absolutely no hope of ever being able to move beyond all the pain and struggle that has held me back for so long. As a survivor of extreme sexual, physical, and emotional abuse throughout my childhood and living with long term chronic illness I have tried almost every kind of mind and body therapy over many decades to try and heal from my past. In just a few short sessions with Lara I knew something was shifting and I no longer suffer from the debilitating anxiety and self hatred that absolutely ruled my life. It's hard to explain exactly what Lara does! She is incredible!

~ Marion H. Williams, Ashland, OR

Having worked with many different practitioners over the last ten years, I have found Lara to be an extremely wise, knowledgeable and compassionate woman. She seems to possess the traits of someone who has walked the path of life many times over. Her intuitiveness is powerful to behold. It has been a very great honour for me to have had her guidance and support.

~ Johanna Lueders, London, UK

Thank you a thousand times for all your love and help. I've been in therapy for 22 years and one single session with you opened my eyes to a whole new world of relating to myself. I feel an unaccustomed ease and joy in everything. What a gift!

~ Geraldine Bethune, London, UK

“I cannot recommend Lara highly enough, as a wise, compassionate witness and guide. She helped me reflect on my loss of self, on my need for individuation, to call back my projections, off of the other, reclaim these lost parts of my psyche. Grief yields to gratitude, for these experiences, all of them. I cannot thank Lara enough for her support,

compassion and guidance.”

~ Ocean Liff-Anderson, Corvallis, OR


“My work with you has enabled me to be more thoughtful, reflective and deliberate in how I connect with others and how I perceive my world. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from you.”

~ Jess Beauchemin, Bend, OR

“My work with Lara has led to a deep evolution in my thinking and a more harmonious relationship with all the parts of myself. I'm amazed at how our weekly phone calls over the past few months have transformed so many parts of my life. I find the depth at which she works through her guided meditations, honest reflections, and coaching to be more profound and accessible than any other therapy I have known. As someone with many years of experience with ceremonial work, I had some tremendous learnings from Lara's approach to holding ceremonial space. She is very skilled at guiding the deep medicine work and supporting the body and her level of one-on-one engagement and guiding was like none I have ever experienced. I have felt a deep shift in my thinking and feeling around certain people and situations in my life. It truly is changing my life and how I relate to

the world.”

~ Lisa Chatham, Sebastopol, CA

“Lara has been able to guide me to a point of clarity and forward momentum that has not been achieved by years of counseling. I am absolutely floored by her ability to guide and support me in this way.”

~ Anthony Veltri, Corvallis, OR

“I am so overwhelmed with gratitude for yesterday's session. It was totally amazing and completely life changing and marked a major personal breakthrough for me. You have worked on my deepest layers and set me free to shine as I know I was created to.

~ Julia Goodall, Bath, UK

“What you are doing for me is priceless. If I were a young person in a tribe and you were the healer taking me through these steps I would owe my life to you! You are a wonderful healer. The world so needs your caring.”

~ Denis White, Corvallis, OR

“Lara offers a deeply healing space of unwavering compassion, wise guidance and gentle humor where I have finally learned self acceptance and found the courage to face the anxieties and fears that kept me and my world so small for so long. Lara is an incredible teacher, facilitator, and guide. My life has changed immeasurably since we started working together.

~ Lisa Jaffrey, Florence, OR

“Working with Lara has changed my life. I spent years in therapy but was never able to extract the grief I carried in the memories of my cells. As I am learning to integrate the pain that I have suppressed for so long, my world is radically shifting. I am more present. I’m developing real compassion for myself. And I am feeling ALIVE. May all people have the profound opportunity to receive the support and tools that Lara shares, and to emerge from the internal cocoons that have imprisoned them. Lara’s guidance, support, and brilliance have illuminated the path to my freedom. May they illuminate the path to yours.”

~ Jenna Derrick, Sebastopol, CA

“I have been referring patients to Lara for several years as her depth of knowledge, wisdom, and therapeutic skills are remarkable. I am struck by her consistent capacity to help those struggling with severe psychological and emotional challenges. She truly is

a talented healer.”

~ Dr Phillip Grob, Santa Rosa, CA


"I have experienced more in depth healing and changes with Lara than any other therapies and modalities I have tried. I often struggle when working with new people and it takes me a while for me to trust them, I did not experience this with Lara. She immediately made me feel at ease and that I could trust her. She is always able to meet me where I am in each individual session, intuitively guiding me to deeper healing and greater self discovery. I can’t really say enough good things about working with Lara, she has a gentle intuitive way of guiding sessions and the healing process that has been extremely effective and invaluable for me. If you are considering working with Lara individually, I highly recommend it, it has changed my life for the better.”

~ Katherine Edmonds, Corvallis, OR

“Lara is amazingly insightful and knows how to help you go into the many layers of what is preventing you from living the life you want.  I have worked with therapists, energy workers, and other non-traditional professionals, but Lara is the only practitioner who has been able to help me understand that pain and grief are not bad, that I don't need to stuff them down, and has given me the tools to work with my issues.  She is supportive, thoughtful, and comes from a non-judgmental place of love and acceptance.  I highly recommend working with her.”

~ Kyle Isaacs, Monroe, OR

“My grief support sessions with Lara moved both emotional and physical energy. Her incredible expert skill in listening, mirroring, and holding space allowed me the room to find hidden expression locked in my jaw and release it fully. Lara is a kind and nurturing soul with a deeply wise presence.”

~ Constance Hart, Morro Bay, CA

“Working with Lara has given me more and more clarity about the fears that have been driving my life, and more choice about the path I am taking through life. She has helped me move through some incredibly challenging issues with a degree of insight and understanding that I have never experienced before with other therapists and healers. She has taught me to how to navigate through life with more clarity and compassion and confidence. I am eternally grateful for her help.”

~ Adriana Martinez, London, UK

“I'm pretty sure more progress was made today than during the seven years that I've been doing annoying therapy stuff.”
