Individual Therapy

Healing the invisible wounds from your past

Dr. Laura-Beth Fitzpatrick, PSY 31518
About My Clients

I provide therapy for individuals across the lifespan and specialize in working with Millennials and Gen Z. My ideal clients are motivated for treatment, open to understanding and exploring their emotions, and curious about the underpinnings of the self.

In order for therapy to be most valuable, my clients are ready to commit to weekly individual therapy, with frequency re-evaluated based on treatment goals.

The therapeutic relationship is the foundation of therapy, and I strongly recommend new clients evaluate my approach as a clinician and decide if I’m the right provider to guide them through treatment.

My Approach

In our first session, we triage what’s needing our attention first. That might look like providing you with tools and skills for immediate symptom relief or processing the difficult emotions you’re holding now. When we’ve attended to what’s most pressing in the present moment, we can then uncover the roots of the issue from the past.

In life, we all experience adverse events. These experiences can set the stage for the development of negative or distorted beliefs about ourselves, others, or the world.

In order to heal from these experiences, we must repair these past wounds, reprocess the memories, release their emotional charge, and change the maladaptive beliefs we’ve held onto from these events.

This is at times difficult work and my goal is to make the time you invest in therapy deeply valuable and reparative. I want my clients to leave therapy with a better understanding of themselves, how these life experiences have shaped them, and to carry with them new adaptive beliefs from which to live their lives.
