Therapist in California Laura Simmons, LMFT

Laura Simmons, LMFT

I am Laura Simmons, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Since 2015, I have provided intensive and trauma-informed therapy to children, adolescents, and adults in community mental health programs. I have extensive experience in helping people work through traumatic events, depression, anxiety, relational issues, life transitions and the stresses that everyday life can bring.

I came to work in the mental health field originally as an administrative assistant at a non-profit agency. I was inspired by the work being done by therapists there in supporting foster children in healing. I returned to school, changed my major and graduated with my AA in Behavioral Sciences (2011) from Antelope Valley College. I continued my studies at Brandman University, earning both my BA in Social Science (2012) and MA in Psychology, Marriage & Family Therapy/ Professional Clinical Counseling (2016).

I consider myself to be an eclectic practitioner, meaning that I draw from a variety of therapy theories, interventions, and skills. Together, we will tailor your treatment to your individual needs and specific learning style by utilizing strategies from narrative therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution focused therapy. Some of the skills you may learn in our sessions include mindfulness, relaxation skills, assertive communication, emotional regulation and conflict resolution.

I always will value and respect your time with me in our sessions. I will provide a safe and judgement free environment for you to begin healing. My ultimate goal is to support you in making the changes you wish to see in yourself and support you wholeheartedly along the way.
