FrontspringWelcome to my site! Like all of us, this site is a work in progress! You’ll want to return and check it out as it progresses.

My name is Laurie M. Belanger LCSWR. I’m your friendly neighborhood trauma therapist. I’m creating this space with the help of WordPress so that I can share some thoughts, give people a place to check on my availability to do Consultations and Speaking Engagements, and spread information to a larger audience about some of the neat things I have found over the years. In the future you will find here:

Explanations about trauma (what do I mean by trauma) and it’s effects on human development

What I like about EMDR as a therapy modality.

What is TBRI® and why should you know about it if you are working with or raising children “from hard places”?

How to reach me for Speaking Engagements or Consultations (in-person or on-line) and an on-line payment option (finally!)

Explanations of complimenting services, other than therapy, that can also make a big difference in healing trauma.

Links to my favorite resources.

Thank you for patience as I put this all together for you!
