Coach Laura, PRC, APSATS-C
Laura is a certified life, relationship, and partner recovery coach (PRC). Laura received her coaching certifications through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC) and the American Association for Sex Addiction Therapy (AASAT). She recently completed training through the Association for Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS). She is also trained as a Stephen Minister to provide Biblical coaching for adults in crisis.
Laura's interest in working with partners began in the aftermath of her own traumatic betrayal when it became clear that there was far more help for the addict than there was for their partners. Having been to several professionals who "just didn't get it," she began the multi-year task of "going it alone" until help came, three years later, in the form of a trusted pastor. Laura is familiar with the physical, emotional, and mental pain the accompanies relational trauma and she is passionate about walking this journey alongside others, in hopes that no woman ever again has to walk this path alone.
Laura is happily married to her best friend. She is the very proud mother of two beautiful daughters. She considers her family her highest priority, and time with them, her greatest value. When she is not coaching or spending time with her family, she can be found volunteering as a leader for her church’s youth program, block printing, taking pictures and learning the ukulele.
