"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
My work is holistic, systems-focused, trauma-informed, somatically-based, and rooted in an understanding of interconnectedness with all life. I draw from a range of healing modalities synthesized over twenty five years, with a particular focus on the underlying principles that these perspectives and practices share. My intention is to engage your inherent capacity for healing and transformation, to offer support for overwhelming or disempowering experiences, and to help you navigate your challenges with courage and insight.
By working with me you can expect to increase your capacity to attune to life-serving needs and emotions; connect and communicate with the natural intelligence of your body and intuition; identify the true sources of pain, learn to embrace and digest difficult emotions, develop strong and flexible boundaries; move through guilt, shame and fear; approach life with curiosity, confidence, and an expanded heart; build courage and resilience for difficult and uncertain times; and cultivate a deeper sense of meaning and belonging.
Sessions are typically 60-90 minutes long and may take place virtually or in-person. I operate a sliding scale for low incomes and provide pro bono sessions at times to those with severely limited resources. I offer an initial 20 minute consultation to talk through any questions you may have, and to see if we are a good fit. Just let me know if you'd like to connect and we can set something up.
I also offer customized daylong or weekend healing retreats.
