Praise for Laura’s Mentoring:
Laura is awesome! She is so warm and positive, but also doesn’t mince words; you can really tell she cares, and has been instrumental in getting me through some dark moments. She has been immensely helpful in helping me transition from just taking a ‘break’ with my fiancé to a really ugly end of our relationship with dignity and respect for myself.
My self-esteem has skyrocketed since we started our journey, and I can honestly say working with her is the best investment I have ever made. I recommend her (by name!) to everyone. I don’t think I would be nearly as ‘okay’ with my unfortunate circumstances if it were not for her guidance. She is the best; do not hesitate to seek her help…worth every penny!
Thanks so much, Laura, for guiding me on this journey. I am generally an optimist so I had no reservations about working with you to “get my Groovy back”. But, to be perfectly honest, I was afraid to expect too much in the way of results. I mean, it’s not like you were going to wave a magic wand to make my dream man appear.
Well, Laura, you didn’t wave a magic wand to make my dream man appear; but the tools, exercises and work we did together made ME appear. I was able to get clear on what makes me happy, what brings me joy and what makes me feel alive. I know that now that I’ve accepted and embraced myself, I will be able to attract a relationship worthy of my unique gifts.
In the journey that you took me through to find myself, I found the courage to go out and find my dream man. I joined a dating website, I made contact with several men and I’ve gone on a few dates. I am very excited about an upcoming second date and I will definitely keep you informed of how things progress.
Sometimes all you need in life is a cheerleader. That’s what you are Laura – a cheerleader who believes in me and the beautiful person I am inside. Thank you for leading me back to my sassy self.
Before working with Laura, I had concerns about whether I had done the work I needed to do for healing and “getting my groovy back” as Laura says after being married for almost 18 years and going through a devastating divorce. Would I attract the same type of man? I was scared about what life would look like on my own since I was co-dependent, grieving and frustrated with all the firsts both my kids and I were going through. I lacked self confidence to really live again on my own and for me and my kids. All I had known is really knowing how to dance in an unhealthy relationship with myself and my ex-husband.
The skills I have learned from Laura really do work. I still have the gratitude rock she gave me at our first meeting. I hold it each evening and remember the good things that happened to me that day. The gifts she sent me have lifted up my spirits and I try to drink out of my “You Rock” coffee mug each day. Laura has made it clear to me that yes, I do “rock”and I am a better person since I found The Breakup Lounge.
Laura told me some behaviors to expect from my husband. Much to my surprise, she was right about all of them and it has helped me handle him a more constructive way. I have many many more good days now and I have recommended Laura to other friends in similar situations. Thanks Laura for all of your help!
I approached Laura after finding some of her videos online and watching all of them! Our first chat was just a glimpse into an awesome journey. I felt she truly understood where I was coming from and I decided to hire her that same day!
I was at a point in my life where I had ended a relationship but still felt like I was emotionally attached to my ex—even when I hadn’t seen or talked to him in 8 months. He seemed to be intrinsically close—even when he was just in my head. After leaving a relationship with much jealousy, I was not able to effectively communicate with other males without feeling like I was cheating ~ even though I was not dating my ex anymore.
When I started talking to Laura and focusing on improving myself, slowly but surely let go on that feeling of false-guilt. One of the best things for me about Laura’s coaching was that she was an objective, compassionate voice in the midst of my ex contacting me out of the blue. I always felt like she had my back. She pushed me and encouraged me when I needed, and she held my hand and was gentle when I required it.
It takes a very sensitive person to know when to do this. I think without her insight I would have gone back into a vicious cycle. Laura was always encouraging. Even if my progress was small and seemingly insignificant she celebrated me and encouraged me to use the momentum to build upon that little step.
I appreciate her not making decisions for me, but guiding me to make conscious decisions that aligned with my personal goals. Her constant encouragement got me in the habit of saying, “Woo-hoo!” I am on a path that urges me to love and honor myself first.
Before working with Laura, I was feeling stuck in my life. I had been divorced for years but hadn’t really stepped into living “my life.” I was always too busy with kids, work, etc. to think about me. After working with her, I am in a much happier place! I’ve learned the value of making myself a priority, really loving me and defining my boundaries for my future relationships.
Her insight was invaluable in helping me shift my perspective in order to change my life for the better. If you want to begin getting the most out of life, working with Laura is just the place to start!
