My name is Laura Haines and I started my career in South Florida twelve years ago. In addition to Florida, I have been providing mental health services to individuals throughout 5 states in the Southeast United States for three years.
I have always had a desire to empower and encourage others which lead me to become a Mental Health Counselor. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University and my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University.
I began my counseling career as a Trauma therapist for victims of crime and served as the Lead Sexual Assault Therapist for one of the largest counties in Florida. I then began serving individuals and families in my private practice in Florida serving special populations including survivors of abuse and trauma, Veterans and their families, adolescents/adults experiencing self-harm, eating disorders, Body Dysmorphia, and severe and persistent mental illness.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Professional in Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, and South Carolina and have dual certification as a Veterans’ Behavioral Health Practitioner from the United States Department of Defense and Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
I follow the Rogerian theory based on:
•Optimistic view of humanity
•Every individual has value
•Unconditional positive regard
I offer services to individuals, families, teenagers, and children as young as 5 years old.
I also offer various classes and support groups, please check our groups’ tab to see what I currently offer.
Laura is also very active at educating our community on various subjects especially Trauma. Trauma could be anything from parental divorce, family conflicts to bullying or abuse.
We are very fortunate to have Laura on our team as she brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
