Laura James, LPC-S

Laura is a licensed counselor in the state of Oklahoma, with a Master of Science in Professional Counseling. Laura works with individuals and couples who are striving to have meaningful relationships and feel more fully present in their lives.  Laura helps her clients understand and accept themselves, so they are able to engage authentically in their lives from a place of belonging. She creates a safe space that allows her clients to move through the process of therapy and create meaningful change in their lives. Laura is trauma-informed and has received advanced training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy which is an evidence-based treatment that helps our mind and body leave painful events in the past, so we can move forward. She has also received advanced training and is seeking certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which focuses on the emotional connection between a couple.   Research studies have found that 70-75% of couples undergoing EFT successfully move from distress to recovery, and approximately 90% show significant improvements.

Laura is passionate about helping her clients because she knows how painful it is to feel misunderstood and disconnected. She believes in her client’s ability to change and uses the tools she has learned to empower others.

We are offering both in-office and telehealth counseling appointments. Although we have found that most insurance are considering telehealth a covered benefit at this point, we ask that you please call your insurance company to determine if you have telehealth benefits.

For in-office counseling sessions, we have a COVID-19 protocol that we are following and you will be emailed a copy of the consent form, as part of the intake paperwork when you become an Empowered Life Counseling client.  For specific questions, please feel free to consult your therapist within the practice.
