Laura DeSantis, LPCC

Welcome! Coming to therapy can be a difficult choice, and I’m here to join you in facing whatever challenges are keeping you from creating the life you want. If you’re uncertain what that looks like, I’m here to join you in that discovery. I will listen, guide, and support you through both difficult and joyous moments in a safe and peaceful space for you to heal and grow. I believe in a strongly collaborative approach, and I know that the biggest expert on you is you. Everyone is different, and your therapy will reflect that. I employ a number of modalities in treatment, which will be tailored to your needs. These include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Humanistic Therapy, and mindfulness-based therapies. Together, we will find an approach that helps achieve your goals, whether that’s healing from past experiences or coping with present challenges. My specialties include, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, other mood disorders, substance use, impulsive and compulsive behaviors, personality disorders, sexual behavior, life transitions, relationship issues, grief, and trauma.

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of California. I earned Master’s degrees in both Professional Counseling and Counseling and Mental Health Services from the University of Pennsylvania.

Reviews for 

Laura DeSantis, LPCC

I came to see Laura when I was in a rough place and she has helped me through a lot, she is also teaching me how to communicate with my fiance and my parents and in laws a lot better than I ever had. She is definitely someone who will listen to what's going on and just lets me vent.

I met with Dr. Ward and Laura DeSantis over the course of several months, and consider myself lucky for doing so. They were both as knowledgeable as they were compassionate, and I couldn't recommend them enough.
