Individual Therapy

Let's support you in facing internal struggles stemming from everyday life, anxiety, stress, trauma, and relationships.

In therapy, we will spend time exploring your history, concerns, strengths, and areas of growth. We will then work together to develop an individualized way to support you in the growth that you want to see in yourself.

You will learn a variety of new tools and skills to manage anxiety or stress, decrease self-criticism, improve self-esteem, increase self-confidence, set healthy boundaries, or learn new ways to communicate. Emphasis will then be placed on learning how to implement these into your everyday life.

Approach

I use techniques from evidence-based approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, and Trauma Focused Therapy.

About Me

My name is Laure Saint Georges Chaumet and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California and Nevada. Since graduating from my Master's Program in 2013, I spent the last 7 years practicing in California and Nevada working closely with adults, families, teenagers and children. I have extensive experience working with families to improve functioning at home.

In addition, I have worked closely with individuals and families who have experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, abuse, grief, anger, stress, panic attacks, low motivation, low-self esteem, and relationship difficulties.

Having moved from France when I was 7 years old, I have experienced being submerged in an unfamiliar culture and enjoy working with diverse families and individuals. Throughout my career, I have worked closely with clients from a variety of backgrounds and cultures and value, above all else, using a non-judgmental and compassionate approach to every individual I meet.
