As they delve into that work, Laura guides and supports them in building a healthy life in recovery and open, honest, and mutually respectful relationships.
Prior to taking on this position in 2023, Laura was a family therapist and before that a primary therapist with Caron Florida’s Professionals Program. She began her career at Caron Ocean Drive in 2014 as a counselor assistant and then lead counselor assistant, roles that prepared her for the therapeutic work she does now.
