Meet Dr. Laura

Hello there, I’m Dr. Laura. Welcome to Compass Psychological Services!

I am passionate about helping my clients obtain quality and effective care in a warm, trusting, and collaborative environment.

My private practice fills several gaps that I see in psychological care in the Tampa area: boutique care for professionals and distance counseling for college students around Florida that require a higher level of care than their college counseling center can offer.

I provide in-person and Teletherapy services to individuals (teens to older adults), couples, and families. I have  specialty training in the following areas: trauma, mood concerns (depression, bipolar disorder I/II, and anxiety), identity and confidence issues, life transitions, and grief.

I have focused training to work with couples (Gottman Level 1 certified) and individuals (Cognitive Processing Therapy certified & PEERS, young adult certified). I currently accept the following insurance: Aetna, Cigna, Optum and United Health.

In addition to working with my amazing clients in private practice, I am an adjunct instructor in the clinical psychology doctoral program at Florida School of Professional Psychology at National Louis University-Tampa, teaching couples and family therapy assessment and other foundational courses such as ethics.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, writing, and traveling.

Specialized certification and training in the following areas:
