Laurel McIntyre's bio

This content was provided by Laurel McIntyre "My parents divorced when I was a freshman in college. It impacted me greatly for several years, and it is probably why I ended up in this profession. I am what you would call a 'seasoned' therapist. I have been doing this kind of work for 30 years, give or take a year or two. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families. I consider myself to be calm and rational. I have delved into several different approaches to therapy and I take what I like from each of them. I do not impose a structure on the process, but rather interact on a personal level, using the knowledge and insights that I have gained through my own life experiences and the education that I have actively sought. In doing couples therapy I do my best to remain neutral and give both persons time to express their thoughts and concerns. I encourage couples to regularly spend 'quality couple time' together. I encourage the couple to come up with some solutions to one or two problems during a session, or to come up with some sort of compromise in which each person can get some of what he/she wants. In working with individuals, I listen for the issues, the feelings, the residual emotional impact of childhood experiences. I encourage a multi-pronged approach to self-care, including stress reduction, positive self-talk, nutrition, medical check ups, going on outings with family or friends. Sometimes I just listen to a person who needs a caring ear. Sometimes I give ideas for addressing a concern, or prompt the person to come up with one or two ideas, I believe that sometimes, merely voicing a feeling can help in the healing process. In addition to talk therapy, I offer neurofeedback, brain training. The type I use is called NeurOptimal. It was been very beneficial in many ways. "

What People Say About Laurel McIntyre, MFT
Laurel continued to only do play therapy with our 10 year old. After 2 years in therapy she wasn't helping our daughter at all. We had a very difficult time scheduling appointments. Would have to call several times over weeks to get an answer. Noone would ever call back to our multiple messages...Read More
