Laura brings a depth of knowledge and level of professionalism to the subject of Anger Management second to none. I led my first training 3 days after the course, confident that I was fully prepared; and I thank Laura and her team for its success!




This is by far the best deescalation training I've had in over 6 years of doing this work.

Participant Evaluation



Working with Laura is working with an expert! She has a deep level of expertise and understanding of anger. Each time I encounter a problem or a challenge Laura will analyze them very professionally and will come out with a brilliant solution. A lot of the time they will be out of the box solutions or ways of looking at those things. Having Laura as my supervisor gives me the confidence that I can always get professional answers whenever I need them at my work as an anger management specialist. Laura is always available and I highly recommend working with her.




Two words, LIFE CHANGING! The (GCT) trainings are thought provoking, it provided new perspective on contributing factors to escalation and helped me increase my self awareness.




It was cutting E.D.G.E! It was so relevant with updated research! Love that the Polyvagal Theory can be applied to Crisis!

Participant Evaluation



As the only Malaysian participant, I found that the anger management course conducted by Laura gave me the inspiration and enthusiasm to implement an anger management program in Malaysia. Thank you, Laura. You have shown your expertise in this area.

I really enjoyed Laura's method for training; using my personal experiences to explain how to teach and guide others.  As a peer, it is important to me to share experiences with those I serve, so filling out my own anger log gave me great perspective. I truly learned a lot about myself and how facilitating Anger Management will continue my personal growth while helping others with theirs!




One of the best trainings I’ve had the privilege to attend, often times I feel unprepared or overwhelmed in a crisis and this training is one of the first times I’ve felt like I could go into a crisis with tools to actually help clients feel better.

Participant Evaluation



Working with Laura has been an enriching experience.  Laura has a warm and engaging personality and her passion for her work shines through all that she does.  Laura has a wealth of knowledge that takes Anger Management techniques to a multi-dimensional level.  Her input has helped me to deepen and strengthen my skills.
