My Approach to Helping

Laura Harris is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina with over 9 years of professional counseling experience. She specializes in helping clients with anger, anxiety, depression, stress management, coping strategies development, problem-solving skills, and more. Laura works with a wide variety of individuals including artists, academic instructors, people of color, immigrants, students, those who identify as LGBTQ+, and those who self-describe as socially awkward. Laura attended Missouri State University and Tuskegee University. She utilizes multiple modalities including talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and person-centered therapy (PCT) to best help her clients.Ultimately, she strives to provide authentic, educational, and compassionate counseling. Laura likes to teach people that mental health diagnoses typically mean that work, school, or home life is negatively affected. This knowledge begins to release us of self-imposed blame or guilt and begin to question the toxicity of our environment. Additionally, she reveres the inclusion and necessity of compassion and positive regard for healthy psychological development.
