Laura Hannibal, MFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #86355
Welcome to my psychotherapy practice.
My style as a therapist is warm and collaborative and I work together with my clients to build on their strengths and to understand and overcome their challenges.
Early in life we often develop patterns of coping or relating that no longer serve us as adults. I am skilled at helping people see these unhealthy patterns and create new ways of relating to themselves and others. This process often leads to a more authentic and joyful life.
Some of my specializations include reducing anxiety, strengthening relationships and conscious parenting. I help my clients feel more calm and connected, which often translates to lowered stress and more fulfilling relationships.
Anxiety is more prevalent in our culture than most people realize, and I help my clients understand the roots of anxiety as well as how to manage and diminish its effects. I offer ongoing workshops that focus on reducing anxiety holistically, with tools such as mindfulness, somatic focusing, changes in diet and lifestyle, and cognitive techniques.
I also am passionate about supporting parents in the wonderful and sometimes challenging work of raising children. There are many dormant wounds in us as parents that become activated with the growth and development of our children, making parenting especially painful at times. However, if we take the time and space to examine the ways of relating that may not be serving us, raising children becomes a profound opportunity for further awakening. Not to mention that it helps to create a life with more ease and joy!
My work is grounded in psychodynamic and Jungian theory, weaving in both mindfulness and somatic approaches. I have additional training in child development, neuropsychology, and attachment theory. I use insight, empathy and humor to connect with and understand my clients. I believe strongly in the inner wisdom within each of us and hold the process of psychological healing within a larger spiritual context.
