Laurie Thornton, CAGS, LMHC, Counselor in Providence
Laurie Thornton is not currently accepting new clients.
**I am not currently accepting new clients.** Do you often feel misunderstood, even excluded? Do you feel as though there are things about you that make it difficult for you to fit in? There can be a significant tension between who we really are, and who other people would like for us to be. Maybe I can help with that. I use a personalized, positive, practical approach taking elements of CBT, DBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I have extensive experience working with people with anxiety disorders (including OCD) and borderline personality disorder.
I specialize in working with people in the LGBTQQ community, people with sex addiction, and people in alternative relationships.
I am a Qualified Clinical Supervisor. I provide 1-1 supervision needed for LMHC licensure.
