What is LGBT Affirmative Therapy? 

Although many of Laura's clients are not LGBT, she has additional training, and extensive experience in LGBT Affirmative Therapy. This is a form of psychotherapy that encourages clients to embrace and celebrate their sexual orientation. LGBT Affirmative Psychotherapy comes from an accepting, supportive place. An LGBT affirmative therapist will not simply compare your experience to a similar heterosexual situation, it will account for all of the unique factors that create an LGBT experience; and life. LGBT Affirmative Therapy is applicable to people of all ages that identify as LGBT, and serves as a wonderful complement to your overall therapeutic journey. 

About Laura Wise, MA

Hello and welcome to my website. Here is a little bit more about me and how I work. I received my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles and am passionate about improving the lives of others, through counseling work and within the non-profit sphere. I work mainly with individual clients (one-on-one) and believe that seeing each other weekly, is the best way to achieve significant, long term improvement. I was previously employed by Antioch University Counseling center and now work in a private practice setting in Beverly Hills.

Special areas of interest include: Anxiety, Depression, Mindfulness, Empowerment, Major Life Changes, Grief/Loss and LGBT.

My current fee is $140 per 50 minute session. I reccomend that clients come in on a weekly basis in order to promote healing. If you are interested in setting up a session, I am best reached by email at laurawisema@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
