|About||At Vivify Wellness counseling practice, I work with people who want to heal from their pasts for a better tomorrow particularly through the use of EMDR.|
Thank you for your interest in Vivify Wellness and congratulations on taking the first step to pursue a path to wellness! My name is Laura Fontaine and I look forward to helping you along your journey. I have a Master's degree in Counseling and Human Systems from Florida State University and a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology from New Mexico State University. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor, a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor, and a Licensed Professional counselor. I am trained in EMDR and often use this method of treatment to help clients process distressing past events that continue to affect their lives today.
For more than 13 years, I have been working with children, teens, adults, and families to help them achieve an improved quality of life and increase their sense of inner strength and well-being. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked with a wide variety of people in a wide variety of settings including residential treatment centers, recovery centers, and in outpatient community mental health clinics.
In my counseling practice, I work with adults and adolescents ages 13 and up. I often find that my clients tend to face challenges such as past abuse/trauma, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-harming behaviors, problems with drugs or alcohol, and trouble in the relationships they have with loved ones. In therapy, we work through the deeper, core issues to help resolve the challenges in their current life.
