Laura Humphries, LMSW, earned her Master’s of Social Work degree in clinical studies from the Catholic University of America and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies from University of Maryland. Laura worked during her graduate studies at Maryland Treatment Centers providing therapy, psychoeducation, and case management to clients recovering from addiction, as well as their families. She also trained at the Office of Employee Assistance at the US House of Representatives where she counseled clients on a range of mental health and life challenges, as well as workplace issues and career transitions. Laura also brings several years of experience working in the private sector, and, in addition to working as a therapist, helps small companies with staffing needs and employee assessments. She also holds a life coaching certificate from the Coaches Training Institute.
Laura’s areas of expertise include relationship and attachment issues, addiction and substance abuse, depression, anxiety, life and career transitions, workplace stress, grief, and bereavement.
She approaches each client as a unique individual and utilizes therapy modalities tailored to their needs and situation. In partnering with clients on their journey, she often employs psychodynamic approaches to develop insight into early life and family foundations, simultaneous with cognitive behavioral and other techniques that provide clients with lasting tools for self-understanding and growth. This is done within the context of a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship.
Laura works with adults, couples, and adolescents, and is currently accepting new clients at our Eldersburg location. Virtual Telehealth sessions are also available.
