As a mental health professional with extensive experience in residential treatment and collaborating with treatment providers across the country, Laura has found that essential to meaningful treatment is the therapeutic alliance between a client and therapist.

Why did you join the company?

I joined the company because of the supportive and inclusive environment. River’s Bend fosters the growth of both clients and clinicians by creating an atmosphere of trust and connectedness.

Hobbies / Favorite Past Times I enjoy spending time in nature by hiking and kayaking. I also enjoy going to concerts, art exhibitions, and exploring new cities. Most of all, I enjoy spending time with friends, family, and my golden retriever puppy, Marnie.
