Owner / Founder

Laurette Fogel

"As a young woman I dreamed of being a mental health therapist and helping others. Life had a “round about” route for delivering me here, though. My first career as a wife and a stay-at-home mother of two children blessed me with precious life lessons and rich opportunities to explore. We lived in numerous parts of the US and in Italy. During this time I developed an avid interest in organic gardening and worked in an organic nursery in Texas. I pursue gardening as a hobby to this day. In 2001, as my younger child approached graduation age, life presented an opportunity for me to return to college and pursue my dream. In college I interned with geriatric, developmentally disabled, medically challenged, addicted, and traumatized populations. After graduation from the College of Social Work at the University of South Carolina in 2010, I worked in hospice social work and became licensed for independent clinical practice in 2013. I am trained in numerous methods of trauma work and certified most recently in EMDR. I feel that my life experiences help me to understand and work with my clients safely, effectively and compassionately."
