Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Patients in my practice are often dealing with some sort of impasse. Depression, anxiety, difficulty in interpersonal relationships, creative blocks, and inability to find some sort of meaning in life are often present. Being stuck in roles that have long outlived their usefulness is another difficult dynamic patients explore. I see people at all stages of the life cycle, with a focus on Jungian Depth Psychotherapy. My background in the arts informs my certifications in sandplay therapy and expressive arts therapy. I am attuned to symbols, images, and dreams as important to the therapy process. www.laurasoble.net

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
