Laura Gracia - MFT Student Therapist


As a Couple and Family Therapy Student Intern attending the only COAMFTE (Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education) accredited program in the state of Nevada, I enjoy working with a diverse client population and a wide range of emotional and behavioral concerns, from relational issues to phase of life changes to mood disorders. I have additional training and experience in working with gender and sexually diverse individuals and couples, eating disorders, and relational betrayal trauma. My practice is systemic in nature, benefiting couples, families, children, adolescents, and individuals alike.

I enjoy working with couples and adolescents, and have experience with clients of all ages and types of relationships. I use a client-centered, individually tailored approach for everyone I see. As no two people are the same, no single model can fit all clients. I give unique and individual attention to each client, developing a method that best suits you.

I offer a compassionate, empathetic atmosphere for you to grow, as well as support and encouragement for you to reach your goals. I believe that, with dedication and desire, we all can have the relationships we want and can find satisfaction in our lives.
