Today we are doing things a little differently. I am speaking with Laura Woodruff, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, about the importance of taking our mental health seriously, and how to deal with grief and trauma in our lives. Laura got her Bachelors and Masters Degree in Social Work from Brigham Young University and has been a therapist for 22 years. She specializes in working with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and grief work and works with teens, couples, individuals and families. Laura has been trained in EMDR, and has enjoyed utilizing this tool to help people with PTSD. For the first ten years of her career Laura worked with teens and families at a crisis center for youth, as well as various residential treatment centers for youth. Then for ten years she worked at Family Services for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and for the last 2-3 years Laura has had her own practice situated in West Jordan, Utah. Laura has been married for 24 years, and has five kids. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, photography, and spending time with her family and two dogs.
