About Laurie Chapman

I enjoy helping clients reach their highest potential in life through strategic enhancement of their internal resources. My work is solution-focused and brief. I am an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) consultant and utilize this strategy with applicable individuals. Clients who are struggling with addiction, depression or anxiety, have experienced a recent loss, are recovering from a traumatic experience, or are struggling with a relationship issue are ideal clients for me. I primarily work with adults, adolescents, couples, and families on these types of issues. I can see you in-person or via teletherapy.

I have 13 years of Executive Management experience and was an All-American distance runner so Executives and Athletes with performance issues are also ideal clients for me. My work with this population includes EMDR, solution-focused, and strategic interventions.

I work with a team of skilled professionals so individuals can get all of their needs met more efficiently.
