Laura Keyser, Ph.D., LPC

philadelphia counselorLaura Keyser says that counseling is about exploration, acceptance and transformation. Would you like to increase your feelings of happiness and life satisfaction? How about communicating better with your partner or your child? Maybe you are feeling stuck in your patterns of anxiety and depression. Do you want to explore your spirituality or heal from a history of childhood sexual abuse? What would it feel like to identify your challenges and increase your strengths as a resilient and hopeful person?

Laura has counseled individuals, children and families in a variety of settings for more than 15 years. She can help you explore your spirituality, and how you make meaning out of life’s challenges. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be used to help you review and revise thoughts that may be getting in the way of your happiness.

Laura’s training in sexual abuse healing can help you begin to experience freedom from those wounds. Exploring issues related to attachment theory can help improve your relationships with your partner or your children. A behavioral modification plan can help lower your stress level while improving your child’s behaviors. You and your counselor (along with any other family members) can do this together in a non-judgmental environment that encourages you to explore, accept and transform your life.
