M. Laurel Collins

My name is Laurel; I have been married eight years to my amazing husband Allan. We have been together nearly sixteen years. We have a three old son (going on 30) who is an adventurous, smart, fun loving child. I enjoy getting to know people; who they are; where they came from; their struggles and victories; and what drives their spirit to live their best life. As a counselor-therapist I strive to gain knowledge that empowers the pursuit of self-actualization and ignites the spirit to be set free from the bondage of anxiety, depression, or as I call these mindsets/emotions/feelings The Black Hole. I am a Licensed School Counselor, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate, and a National Certified Counselor. I am currently working for my county's public school system as a Counseling Coordinator assisting students, their families, and schools in relation to mental health.
