Laurel wasn’t supposed to be an expert in triggers and trauma, or even the one training others to treat it. After successfully avoiding clients with this diagnosis for 15 years, she was the last person to be talking about having success treating this group of people. However, after being trained in a therapeutic modality that makes use of the science behind memory reconsolidation, everything changed. After experiencing much success with her clients, she went on to be a national trainer and teach other clinicians how to treat trauma as well. Her mission is to help others eliminate trauma and triggers with ease. She uses her skills to treat people with PTSD and others who just want freedom from images and words that replay in their mind and inhibit their performance, as well as hold them back from the life intended for them. Laurel is a licensed marriage and family therapist and has been practicing for over 24 years. She is Master Certified in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) as well as a national trainer in ART. She is a collaborator for the recently developed therapeutic modality of Critical Memory Integration (CMI) and has trained psychiatrists and psychologist internationally. She owns a group practice in Groton, CT and is the founder of Optimal Outcome. She consults for universities as well as provides continuing education for hospitals and non-clinical agencies. She is the author of Betrayed, not Broken and has been featured in the Chicago Tribune, Newsweek and Military Life magazine.
