About Laura Young, LCSW
While interning at a Refugee Family Center in London, Laura Young witnessed the inspiring, amazing resiliency of the human spirit to overcome severe hardships and to find the ability to thrive through determination and personal growth. Laura strongly believes that a person’s past does not define their future and they can become who they want to be. She values the importance of being honestly reflective when confronting the behaviors and thoughts that are no longer working in patients’ lives and hindering their growth. Her goal is for a patient to learn to be their own therapist, through integrating meaningful skills and patterns into their lifestyle. Laura holds a BS from Texas Lutheran University and a MSW from Texas State University. She appreciates Art Williams’ quote, “I am not telling you it is going to be easy. I am telling you it is going to be worth it.”

Laura is a highlight! I have been very pleased with the services provided by Laura. We have recently moved and I was a bit apprehensive leaving my other provider, finding another and being virtual. I felt that Laura was a wonderful match for me at the start and made the transition seamless. She is wonderful.
