START Therapy

Smart Treatments for Anxiety Relief and Trauma

Dr. Laura Crocker, Clinical Psychologist

​At START Therapy, I offer smart treatments - which means 1) my approach to treating PTSD, stress, anxiety, and depression is evidence-based - that is, it is supported by scientific research and 2) can incorporate strategies for attention and memory issues (if relevant to you) that often accompany PTSD, stress, anxiety, and depression. I treat adults in California through telehealth (videoconferencing). More information about my specialty areas can be found here on the services page.

Although I use therapy approaches that have been shown to be most effective through research, treatment is always individualized and tailored to your specific background, goals, and needs. I value your input, thus my approach is collaborative, in addition to being supportive while encouraging change and growth.

Typically, the goal of the type of treatment I provide is to help you learn and practice skills to improve the way you manage your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to improve various aspects of your life, including relationships, work or school functioning, and life satisfaction. The goal is to not just reduce anxiety, stress, and depression - rather, treatment also focuses on getting you on a path to living your best, most meaningful life.

I am committed to continually educating myself on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion and to champion them in my practice.

Contact me to START Therapy and let your best life take flight.
