About Katie Laux, LCMHC, MLADC Available December 2021

My name is Katie Laux (locks). I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Master Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and National Certified Counselor. I began my journey at Plymouth State University where I earned a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and I’ve been practicing psychotherapy since 2015. Prior to coming to LifeStance Health, I worked at a nonprofit agency in Manchester, NH providing group and individual mental health therapy and addiction treatment in an intensive outpatient program.

There are many reasons to seek therapy and I value the courage it takes to prioritize yourself as you embark on this journey of self-knowledge. I offer a safe, warm, interactive, and compassionate space to tend to your thoughts, emotions, and body sensations, as we explore the part of you seeking change. When you develop a relationship with a caring, attuned therapist, you will find new ways to solve problems, heal old wounds, and change the way you live your life.

I work with adult individuals who find themselves struggling with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, self-worth, stress management, work/life balance, mindfulness, family of origin issues, trauma, life transitions, women’s issues, and general life stressors. I utilize a variety of techniques depending on what is most appropriate for the individual. Cognitive-behavioral Therapy: replacing unhelpful thinking patterns or emotional responses with those that are more desirable and adaptive; Rational Emotive Therapy: identifying and changing irrational beliefs; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: embracing thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or avoiding them; Mindfulness Practice: learning to be in the present moment without judgment; meditation/grounding, breathwork, and mind/body connection.

I am currently in training as a practitioner of Compassionate Inquiry®, a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Mate’. The aim of this approach is for the therapist and individual to reveal what lies beneath the appearance that the individual presents to the world. In Dr. Mate’s own words: “The purpose of Compassionate Inquiry is to drill down to the core stories people tell themselves – to get them to see what story they are telling themselves unconsciously; what those beliefs are, where they came from; and guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories, or letting go of the hold those stories have on them …”

Although change and growth may take time, my goal is to assist in facilitating the quickest relief possible for you. This means I provide immediate feedback, tasks to focus on between sessions, and tools to practice new skills.

I’m looking forward to creating a collaborative therapeutic partnership with you!
