About Laura Richer
Officially speaking, I am a Licensed Mental Health Care Counselor Associate; practically speaking, I am a psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, and coach. I’ve been doing this work in the Queen Anne neighborhood and elsewhere in Seattle since 2011. For as long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed giving back. Volunteer projects took me from North Seattle to Central and South America; from the public health sector to hospice. I knew that helping others was my calling, but I somehow ended up in the corporate world and struggled with feelings of complete loss and an utter lack of meaning. When I decided to leave that path and launch my own coaching and hypnotherapy practice, I was able to combine my love of entrepreneurship with my sincere desire to help people make positive changes. In 2015, I followed up my initial training with an MA in clinical mental health counseling; this additional certification allows me to work with an even more diverse population.
