What Is Professional Clinic Counseling?

Professional clinical counseling is the application of counseling interventions and psychotherapeutic techniques to identify and remediate cognitive, mental and emotional issues, including personal growth, adjustment to disability, crisis intervention and psychosocial and environmental problems. Lara uses an eclectic blend of psychotherapy and mind-body healing practices. Lara draws upon Psychodynamic Therapy, Somatic Experiencing®, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, Play Therapy (for children), Chakra Therapy, Yoga Therapy and other mind-body healing modalities.

What Is Recovery And Embodiment For The Awakened Female Coaching?

Lara partners with her clients to design the life they want, bring out their own feminine brilliance and resources to live a meaningful, soul driven, embodied life. By identifying areas of disconnection, Lara provides clients with specific practices to restore the body-mind-spirit connection and reclaim the feminine way. Lara assists clients in identifying maladaptive behaviors that distract them from achieving their optimum spiritual, sexual, sensual, emotional, physical and psychological health. The coaching process moves women into taking actions that lead to self-love, improved body image, emotional intelligence, increased confidence and an integrative sense of self.

How Long Are The Sessions?

Sessions last 50-60 minutes. Lara is also available for longer sessions. If you would like to book a longer session it will be pro-rated based on the amount you pay.

Is There Touch Involved In Somatic Therapy Sessions?

I may offer you touch support for the following reasons: grounding, containment, support, mobilization, or awareness building. You will always be asked before being touched and have the right and my full support to decline. If you do not feel comfortable with touch, or if the session does not call for it, session work will not include touch.

What Is Your Fee?

Sessions are $165 and run 50-55 minutes. I reserve a third of my practice for students and low-income clients who may be eligible for a sliding scale. Please contact me for more information.

Will My Insurance Cover Therapy?

Many health insurance plans pay for a certain number of mental health visits, but they may only pay for services provided by in-network providers. Lara is an out-of-network provider for all insurance carriers. She will not bill your insurance company for you, but she will provide a super bill at the end of each session for you to send to your insurance company for reimbursement.  (Please Note: Insurance does not cover coaching sessions.)

What Will I Learn Most From Working With You?

You will drop into your essence as a woman and the beautiful feminine art of receptivity. When you connect deeply with your body, your sensuality and heart as a woman, you become magnetic, drawing toward you all those things you most deeply desire. The journey we take together is informative, experiential and sacred. Together we will explore all of the cultural, societal and religious conditioning that has separated you from your inherent beauty and perfection as a woman. You will be taught how to break through these faulty belief systems, fall in love with yourself and find your value from WITHIN, overcoming the externally defined beauty based sense of self women face in today’s world.

Are Sessions Done Via Skype, Phone, Or In Person?

Lara prefers in person coaching and counseling sessions. If that is not feasible, Skype is the preferred method of communication. Lara is available via phone or Skype for out of state coaching but prefers Skype.
