Thank you for your interest in Vivify Wellness and congratulations on taking the first step to pursue a path to wellness. My name is Laura Fontaine and I look forward to helping you along your journey. I have a Master's degree in Counseling and Human Systems from Florida State University and a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology from New Mexico State University. I am a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor and a Licensed Professional counselor. I am an EMDRIA certified EMDR therapist and Consultant-in-Training and often use this method of treatment to help clients process distressing past events that continue to affect their lives today. You can read more about EMDR on the "What is EMDR?" page.
For over 15 years, I have been working with children, teens, adults, and families to help them achieve an improved quality of life and increase their sense of inner strength and well-being. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked with a wide variety of people in a wide variety of settings including residential treatment centers, recovery centers, and outpatient community mental health clinics.
In my counseling practice, I work with adults and adolescents ages 13 and up. I often find that my clients tend to face challenges such as past abuse/trauma, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-harming behaviors, dissociation, and trouble in the relationships they have with loved ones. In therapy we work through the deeper, core issues to help resolve the challenges in their current life.
