Laura Aydlette, MS Clinician – Fairfax
Laura Aydlette is a Resident in Counseling in Virginia. She received her Master of Science in Counseling from Divine Mercy University, where she was taught an integrated approach to human flourishing that combines the wisdom of the Catholic faith with the grounding in psychological sciences. Her faith informs the hope-filled approach she takes with clients.
During her clinical internship she worked with children as young as three, adolescents, and adults of all ages primarily struggling with anxiety, adjusting to life transitions, and looking for healing from trauma. She also has worked with parents and families seeking to build or rebuild connection with one another. She believes in treating the whole person and as such takes an eclectic, trauma-informed approach to therapy, incorporating whichever techniques may serve each client best, to include creative work. She is certified in EMDR Level 2 through the Green Cross Academy of Traumatology.
