Laurie Thornton, CAGS, LMHC, Counselor in Providence
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.
