Well, you helped me beyond what you may think. I went to a number of therapists before I met you and nobody – not one of them – saw the truth about me. The journey through that horrible darkness was only bearable because I knew you were with me. I could never have done that alone. You pushed me when I needed it, and backed off when I needed it. I felt then, as I do now, that you are all that is Good and I could hold onto that. You have empowered me to find the strength, power and courage within myself to walk through some heavy stuff, sober and survive. And for that I am eternally grateful. You are an incredible woman and a powerful therapist. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I found Laura Dorris through a referral from my primary care doctors. The grief I was experiencing was crippling due to many unnatural, incredibly tragic events that fractured my world. Laura met with me on a weekly basis and helped me make sense and survive; no, I would actually say, thrive. She is an incredible grief counselor!
There is a term I found called post-traumatic growth. It is working through post-traumatic stress to a point where you are better adjusted than before the tragedy. I believe I am there and grateful to Laura Dorris for taking me on that journey. I now live in California, have a new life, outlook, and have found a soulmate. That was the final step to my healing, gently prompted by Laura. She is an amazing counselor, educator, compassionate listener, and colleague. Do not hesitate to begin the healing!
Laura Dorris was my counselor over nearly two years. She became my confidant. We laughed, I cried, and she helped me mend through my crippling grief and sadness. I survived! What is better than that!
The journey into oneself is a courageous adventure. When I entered into therapy with Laura Dorris, I found a compassionate listener and insightful analyst who helped me look squarely into my past, face the horrors of my childhood abuse, and ultimately find forgiveness and peace. Laura has walked with me as I cried and laughed my way from victimhood to survivorship. It felt safe and comforting to have a therapist I trusted to help navigate a path of becoming a better woman, partner, mother, daughter, sister and friend.
For over two years, my therapist, Laura Dorris, has guided me in resolving my anxiety issues which lead to panic attacks. Laura introduced me to various methods of thinking about my issues and how to modify my behavior so that I am better able to deal with my thoughts. I continue seeing her once or twice a month to continue my progress and to deal with additional issues. With her continued support, I no longer have panic attacks. Therapy offered me the impartial support I needed, and Laura is trustworthy, listens, offers suggestions and directs me to a better life.
Laura Dorris is a very caring, dedicated and down to earth person. She can always be counted on to be there when I need someone to talk to. She goes over and beyond to accommodate my schedule. I feel very comfortable in her office and talking to her. It has helped me tremendously over the past year and I look forward to continuing to work with her.
I am very happy to write this testimonial for my counselor Laura Dorris. I’ve been coming to see Laura for at least two years. Her kind, caring and compassionate counseling has tremendously helped me develop effective solutions to life’s challenges. I have made so much progress in the last two years with the positive support I’ve received from Laura. I always leave our sessions validated and empowered. It gives me great comfort knowing I can speak confidentially about my issues and solve life’s problems with Laura as my life coach. I would recommend her to anyone seeking assistance. Additionally, everyone in the office is friendly and supportive.
