Thank you for your interest in Laurie’s practice. Her schedule is usually full, and openings typically become available as clients complete treatment or reduce frequency of their sessions. She sees clients on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. She only works one evening a week so there are VERY limited openings for evening appointments.
If you wish to schedule an appointment you may have to go on a waiting list. Please check the payment questions page before contacting her, so you have information about insurance and/or rates.
Individuals whose schedules are generally flexible can sometimes get in sooner, but waiting for any amount of time is not an appropriate option for many people seeking counseling. Please take this into consideration and if you are in immediate need of an appointment, contact your insurance company and locate a practice that can accommodate your needs. You can also check the “Referrals” page on this website to see if you might be a good fit with any of the practices or clinicians listed here.
Please do not contact Laurie if you are a solicitor or attempting to promote your business or product. She regrets that she is unable to accommodate requests from other businesses at this time.
The best way to contact Laurie is to send a message on this page. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IS ACCURATE. If you do not hear back from Laurie, it is very likely because you have not provided the correct email address—she does her best to get to all emails and even if it is a few days, you should hear back from her. However, if you provide an incorrect email, she will not have any way of reaching you. There have been several times when people have lost out on scheduling opportunities because of making this error.
Finally, please be sure to include information such as your availability, basic description of issues, etc. She will get back to you as soon as she is able, generally within 48-72 hours. You can call her or text her as well but email is preferred—the phone number is 610-209-2837.
Never leave any emergency information on this website.
