Hi, I'm Laura

This job demands expertise and creativity. I wanted to build a place counselors could come find valuable ideas from an experienced community.

In 2016, I started Confident Counselors as a monthly round-up of resources. A group of 20+ counselors, who I met in Facebook groups, would send me a couple links and some tips on a topic.
