Laura Cousins, LCSW has been providing mental and behavioral health counseling to children, families and adults since 1996. She holds two Bachelor’s degrees: one in Human Services from Upper Iowa University and one in English and Geography from University of South Florida. Her Master’s degree is in Social Work with a clinical emphasis from the University of Northern Iowa.
Laura has unique experience not only as a clinician, but also as a foster/adoptive parent, parenting children who are exhibiting severe emotional and behavioral pain. She understands and empathizes with the difficulties and stress that can be overwhelming at times for a parent who cares for a child with impaired functioning and disruptive behavior as a result of that pain. Laura provides an empathetic and straight-forward approach to helping parents and children, using evidence-based theory and practice, primarily psycho-education, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and play therapy. Since every family is unique, treatment is tailored to a family’s specific needs and strengths
