"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 offer holistic, intuitive, integrative, trauma-informed, systemically-focused, and earth-honoring guidance and support for life's challenges. My work is grounded in an understanding of the profound interconnectedness between personal, social, cultural, economic, ecological, and ancestral influences, and their intersection. Some of what we might explore together are ways to recognize and transform habitual, harmful patterns in your relationship with yourself and others, recover and reclaim lost or exiled parts of your psyche, metabolize and release compacted trauma and grief, identify and unravel any energetic entanglements you carry as a result of intergenerational trauma (epigenetics), cultivate greater clarity, flexibility, resilience, open-heartedness, and self-compassion, nurture and develop an authentic, embodied spiritual practice while being aware of the many pitfalls and traps on the spiritual journey, reclaim your natural state of curiosity and wonder, and uncover and develop your unique gifts.
As an Integrative Healing Arts Practitioner I draw from a wide range of inter-related perspectives and practices that deepen and inform each other, including; Theravadan and Zen Buddhism, animistic and shamanistic traditions, nature connection and immersion, animal communication and equine therapy, somatic and embodiment practices, ritual gesture and ceremonial practice, the creative healing arts, plant spirit medicine work, and various scientific frameworks that support expanded ways of understanding reality and consciousness, such as; complexity science, quantum theory, and fractal dynamics. In addition I draw from over two decades of study and training in a range of modalities, including:
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Song Therapy/Sound Healing
Sessions are typically 60-90 minutes long and can take place by phone, FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or in-person, depending on each individual. I operate a sliding scale for low incomes and offer my work pro bono when possible to those with severely limited resources. Curious, but not sure? I am happy to schedule a free 20 minute consultation to talk through any questions you have. Just let me know and we can set something up.
I also offer in-person single or multiple day healing intensives.
