Laura is a skillful listener who is passionate about guiding people toward hope in the midst of suffering. She believes that real, lasting change occurs through a combination of deep, personal insight and the outworking of that insight in practical life contexts. Laura brings diverse professional and cultural experience to the therapy room through her previous work in law, entertainment and ministry. She is particularly interested in couples counseling, singleness, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, spiritual issues and vocational discernment. If you feel stuck in your problems and don’t know how to move past unhealthy patterns in your life or family, Laura wants you to experience new, life-giving ways of being in the world and in relationship with people around you.
“I grew up moving around the world, and in each country and culture that I lived, I saw a universal theme emerge: people desire to be fully known and understood. This “being known and understood” occurs in relationship with others – our fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, friends and coworkers. As a therapist intern, it’s a privilege to journey with people through their pain, fear and conflicts. I hope that together we can clear away the debris of past and present wounds to create space for relational change to occur.”
Laura Love received her BA from Vanderbilt University and her Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy at Fuller Theological Seminary. She is under the supervision of Vincent Staraci, LMFT, #36155.
