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. I am the owner of Vivify Wellness and I look forward to helping you along your journey. I deeply believe in each individual's ability to heal and live the life they desire.
For around 20 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.
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 Professional Counselor and a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor. I am an EMDRIA certified EMDR therapist and Approved Consultant and often use this method of treatment to help clients process distressing past events that continue to affect their lives today. I am also trained in Brainspotting and have additional training in trauma-informed care and structural dissociation theory. You can read more about EMDR on the "What is EMDR?" page and Brainspotting on the "What is Brainspotting?" page.
