Laura Harris is a Licensed Professional Counselor and feels that working in mental health services has been very rewarding because she gets to work with people from diverse backgrounds. Her overall care philosophy is similar to that of a gardener: a living being can only grow to be their most beautiful self with lots of support and nurturing. Problems typically arise when the environment no longer supports their growth. Laura wants to provide an emotionally safe space for her patients where they can be nurtured and thrive. She treats patients ages 18 and up at our Durham, NC location and through our telehealth platform DirectCare, specializing in anger management, anxiety, CBT, and ADHD.
