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.

When you visit the site today, you will find hundreds of posts from counselors all over the country. They are sharing their experience and ideas so you don't have to start from scratch. I hope you find what you need to feel prepared, supported, and confident.
