Hi, I’m Laura!
I help people find more happiness and clarity in their lives. As a couples therapist, small business owner, writer, and educator, I have helped thousands of people feel more connected and less divided.
As clinical director and co-owner of Main Line Counseling Partners, a small private practice, in Bryn Mawr, PA, I oversee over 5,000 hours of therapy a year, manage a team of therapists, and provide live workshops and trainings to aspiring couples therapists.
But I am a student.
Every day I am humbled by the courage and bravery of my clients as they trust me with the welfare of their marriages, families, and mental health. I have had some of the most brilliant mentors in my field and continue to learn day after day. I am certified in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy and work with Drs. John and Julie Gottman on their research team.
I am blessed with a devoted spouse, extraordinary children, and parents who taught me that I could make a difference in the world. When all is right in the world you can find me near the ocean on a windy day.

Certified Gottman Method Couples Therapist
250 Hours of Couples Therapy Annually
My advice is informed by many hours of face-to-face experience helping couples communicate better and feel more connected.
Over the last 5 years, I have completed 3,953 sessions of couples therapy.
96% of couples see an improvement in their relationship after attending a 2 day workshop.
Most relationship problems are preventable. On average couples wait 7 years to seek help for issues they could have found answers to online.
Why I’m Here
I believe in the power of prevention and consistency.
Build a better relationship, starting today. Whether you’re madly and love and want to keep it that way for a lifetime, or you are struggling and want some support, I am here to help.
Love is an action verb. Learn what you can do to feel more connected, communicate more clearly, and have more fun together.
