Counseling For All Parts of You
Laura Dart, LCSW & EMDR Trained
I believe in helping you with what you need. I will come along side you in the various pain and struggles you are dealing with and be present with you. Healing will not be rushed but on your time. You are not alone in your feelings, the world is also struggling.
But there is hope and healing within your grasp. So come to the office and let's meet. Sit down, take a breath and feel welcomed at a place that has no judgment or a specific set rules. It is just me with a listening ear and a compassionate heart.

Some of the main areas I help in are anxiety, depression, and relational challenges. A primary focus that is close to my heart is helping to equip and encourage others with chronic pain and chronic illness. As a child who has experienced chronic illness myself, I understand the challenges that can arise from such difficulties. I want to encourage others on their way to wellness.

Education and Background
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and obtained my master’s degree in Social Work with an emphasis in Children and Families at the University of Texas in Arlington. I completed the 3000 clinical hours under supervision required for counseling as an independent practitioner.
I have been practicing for several years in various roles within the counseling and social work field. After finishing my graduate degree, I gained additional knowledge working at a pain management clinic. I also have had experience providing therapeutic interventions at behavior modification centers, substance abuse programs, and outpatient clinics. Each of these settings has provided me with a deeper understanding of both practice techniques and the ability to effectively address your specific needs.
It is because of this personal and professional background that I see health and wellness from a holistic viewpoint. I would be honored to collaborate with you on your mental health journey.
