Laura Bauhof, PhD

Laura Bauhof, PhD has a wide range of clinical experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. Dr. Bauhof has provided counseling and therapy services in outpatient, community mental health, and university counseling centers. She utilizes a variety of therapeutic modalities to meet her client’s needs and therapy goals including interpersonal, solution-focused, family systems and cognitive behavioral approaches, with a growing interest in ACT.

Laura works with individuals and families facing difficulty with depression, anxiety, parenting issues, identity development, life transitions, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. She has special interests in working with gifted children and in incorporating forgiveness into therapeutic work for individuals who feel “stuck” because of past hurts. Laura also has extensive experience with diagnostic testing and assessment of intellectual functioning, emotional functioning, ADHD, and learning difficulties.

I believe every person has the capacity to tap into his or her strengths to create an authentic and meaningful life.

Laura’s work is grounded in establishing a caring, trusting relationship within which she considers the full individual including his or her physical, emotional and spiritual experiences. Her goal is that within the safety of this relationship people can dare to explore areas of difficulty and feel supported in striving to make positive changes.

Dr. Bauhof received her BA in Psychology from the University of Notre Dame and her MA in Counseling and Human Services from John Carroll University in University Heights, OH. She received her PhD in Counseling Psychology from Loyola University Chicago with a minor in Multicultural Counseling. Laura spends her free time with her husband and two children and enjoys reading and outdoor activities.
