Laura Fritzsche LPC-MHSP
Licensed Professional Counselor / Mental Health Services Provider
Diversity Statement: I work with clients with a diverse range of identities with regard to race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic status, religion, gender, sexuality, and ability. My approach emphasizes humility, sensitivity, openness, curiosity, and affirmation toward these intersecting identities.
My clients and I often discuss ways that these constructs may show up in their lives in general and/or in the therapeutic relationship given the systems of privilege and power to which we are all subject. I have received extensive training on cultural sensitivity and consider myself to be a social justice-minded therapist as well as an ally to LGBTQIA++ individuals.
While I have worked in a variety of clinical and research settings, my training in OCD specifically began in academic research at Vanderbilt (where I attended undergraduate and grad school) over a decade ago and extended into several years of clinical work at Rogers Behavioral Health. In both settings, I was lucky to have been supervised by experts in the field and had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of obsessive-compulsive presentations. Now, virtually 100% of my caseload is dedicated to individuals seeking help for some form of anxiety, the majority of whom are diagnosed with OCD specifically.
