Welcome! My name is Laura Rose, the founder of Laura Rose Therapy & Coaching. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been in practice for 12 years. I have a physical office located in Marin and see clients virtually. I also work with clients nationwide as a coach.

I come from a depth psychology orientation, which takes into account the unconscious beliefs, attitudes, and self-defeating patterns hidden from everyday awareness that impact our well-being and relationships. In my practice, I use approaches like EMDR, psychodynamic, Jungian depth, and Somatic therapies to help you transform your inner and relational conflicts into opportunities for growth and life change.

My life experience as a mother, partner, corporate executive, meditator, and traveler, as all of the trials and tribulations along the way, led to my becoming a Psychotherapist. I’ve studied both Eastern and Western philosophies and religions, which allows me to bring a wealth of depth, experience, and insight to the clients whom I work with.

Almost everything I help clients through is something I myself have experienced. Through living a life of introspection and self-discovery, I have come to value the inner worlds of others and have developed immense compassion and empathy. I hope to be able to help you see the beauty in who you are and to provide the unconditional acceptance that is at the foundation of a journey toward growth and change.

My Education

I received my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California where I was trained in Depth Psychology. I did my graduate research in EMDR, which has shown to be effective in the treatment of PTSD and other forms of trauma. I have found that utilizing EMDR is a straightforward way to approach symptom reduction for clients who feel stuck in unhealthy patterns. In my experience, EMDR combined with depth psychology addresses clients’ challenges in a very effective, holistic way.

My therapy practice focuses on helping adults and teenagers, with a specialization in supporting those struggling with disordered eating and trauma. I start with new clients by identifying their goals for therapy, then work with them to uncover the underlying patterns, narratives and thoughts that affect their feelings and behaviors. After exploring the possible origins of their issues and bringing them to consciousness, clients may notice an increased capacity to bear, integrate, and ultimately thrive in the presence of emotional discomfort. My work is informed by psychodynamic, Jungian, and psychoanalytic theories, practiced through a trauma-informed lens.


My training is in depth psychotherapy, which seeks to illuminate the unconscious of both the individual and the collective. In my practice, I like to complement this more abstract and esoteric modality with concrete, practical interventions such as those from the cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy traditions.
