Mental Health Therapist
Laura was born and raised on Kumeyaay territory also known as San Diego. Her educational journey has led her to the Community-Based Block (CBB) program at San Diego State University (SDSU), where she received her Master’s of Science in Multicultural Counseling in May of 2016. Through her CBB experience she got to redefine what holistic wellness means to her and how much we can heal as a family/community.
As a Xicana Indigena she works on giving back to her community while promoting healing of mind, body, and spirit. She has had the honor of serving the San Diego Community for the past 10 years in a multitude of capacities; from providing emotional support to the young women of San Diego Job Corps and King-Chavez Preparatory Academy, to organizing summer programs for high school students to promote higher institutions of learning and more. Laura has been blessed to provide counseling services to children, adolescents, and families throughout her professional career and is currently working towards becoming a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.
She hopes to continue to be an advocate for students while striving to be that person who makes a difference in a family’s life through love, compassion, and a helping hand. In her free time she enjoys playing with her daughter, gardening, sewing, and feeling connected to Mother Earth. In Lak Ech!
