Hello.

Thank you for considering working with me.

I have worked with people from all over the world for more than 20 years. From 2001-17, I worked in Paris, France. Now, from my home in Chicago I talk with clients from SF to NY and Paris by phone and/or Internet.

Clients who work by phone tell me the added sense of “anonymity” they feel makes it easier to say what’s truly in their heart & mind. Many of my clients are available to you as references.  

I have no “traditional hours,” sometimes scheduling at 10pm and 7am including weekends. I invite you to have a brief phone chat at no charge in order for us to see how we feel talking together.

My philosophy and approach is “old school.” I am saddened at the enormous amount of additional, unnecessary suffering people endure when labeled with such terms as “bipolar, add, adhd, depressed,” etcI am alarmed at how much and how fast medication is prescribed for stress, anxiety and depression – especially for women. I reject that approach. I see way too many unqualified “professionals” choosing these quick/easy routes of labeling and medication, doing people more harm than good.
 
At the same time, I am a bit “new school” in my use of phone sessions and the Internet for video calls. I invite you to consider phone and/or Internet sessionsI only started doing them about one year ago as so many people requested them first as a matter of convenience but ultimately, 95% of my clients tell me they prefer talking in this more “anonymous” way.
 
Sessions go approximately 60/75 minutes. I don’t let the time on the clock dictate a precise amount of time for a session. I prefer to let us both sense the natural moment to conclude. My fee is $100 per session, not per hour.
 
I would be pleased to hear from you and set a time for a brief phone chat at your convenience. Please feel free to text, phone or email, as you prefer.
 
Kind regards, 
Laura Meagher

Nicole C. Therapy/Counseling 

I can’t explain how how happy and connected I feel working with Laura! I work in the medical profession so I am very particular when it comes to this sort of stuff. I have a blended family with five children, I work, my husband works two jobs, so I don’t have time for life! I am writing this review to let people know if your looking for someone to talk to you can stop right now because Laura is definitely your girl! Laura and I briefly text in between sessions and she really cares about you as a person. I have talked with therapists in the past and it was a one time deal because they are so judgmental. I have had three conversations now with Laura. I can say anything that I feel or think and I don’t have to hold back I can just let it all out and say it exactly how it is! I am beyond comfortable already. I am so grateful I found her. Thank you Laura your an amazing person!! ~Nicole M.~

FAHAD Q.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

My wife and I are very happy to be working with Laura. First session she accommodated a last-minute change in schedule for us. We came in hesitant not really knowing what to expect, and left with a smile and sigh of relief afterwards. She really made us feel like she was on both of our teams with an open and naturally flowing session. We’re happy we found her and highly recommend her!

Therapy/Counseling/General Guidance

She really listens to what you say and how you say things and asks you questions to get to the real truth of things. Love the fact that I can speak to her over the phone because it puts me more at ease and free to jot down ideas and notes and cry and not feel intimidated opening myself up to someone sitting and staring at me. She lets you say what you want with no expectations. She gives lots of love and encouragement and helpful tips for improvement. She’s been a real godsend as far as helping me overcome some of my fears and anxieties and getting me through some tough situations.

I have talked to Laura a couple of times, and she has directed me in a positive direction, when I was lost within my anxiety. She helped me slow down and was patient and understanding. I love talking to her and hope to soon again. Thanks Laura

Laura was absolutely OUTSTANDING. She is very direct, and that’s okay with me. She helped me more in one hour, than therapists I’ve seen for repeated sessions. I am super grateful! I will use her again in a heart beat.

Therapy and Counseling/Anxiety/Relationships/Career

 

Laura is an amazing therapist! She was able to help me with solving problems related to employment decision, life style changes, family relationships and personal challenges. She has a keen focus on listening to the concerns. Most importantly, she provides real strategies, solutions and suggestions in getting the help that you need. I have anxiety and I am learning how manage it. Most importantly , I especially enjoyed the convenience of having our sessions over the telephone as we were in two different states.

I’ve had two sessions with a Laura so far. Both have been of superb quality! She listens carefully, is generous with her time and provides great advice. She may not tell you what you want to hear. But she will tell it like it is. No fluff, no BS. She’ll encourage you to stop her if you think she is wrong. But she will challenge your thinking and give different perspectives about your situation, even when you think you are sure of yourself. I appreciate this greatly because for me, gaining different perspective helps me understand myself and others in a much more profound and meaningful way. She will end the conversation on a prositive note!
