“Laurie is warm, kind, and feels deep empathy and compassion for children and adults. This compassion allows her to give advice in a way that is not shaming or degrading but uplifting. She validated my feelings from childhood trauma and gave me advice on working through them... Laurie worked her magic and we have been able to become a much more connected family- working together... I highly recommend Laurie A. Couture. She will challenge you as a person to examine your beliefs, your needs, and your passions. She will then guide you- not drag you-further than you ever knew you could go. Laurie also encourages critical thinking and has inspired me to look at issues from a whole other perspective.”
— Elizabeth Handler, mom of five
“Laurie A Couture, I am so very grateful and impressed with your openness, warmth and compassion during our consultation. The information you so graciously shared with me has definitely changed the dynamics at home. I am no longer stressed or anxious about my family’s future. It’s amazing how much clearer it was to understand my role as a partner to my child once you broke down the secure [attachment] parenting cycle. It is so simple, yet most of us miss it. You provided me with so many feasible tools, many of which I have already researched and started the process of integrating into our lives. I feel blessed to have found you, honored to have worked with you and excited about the possibility of continuing to work with you in the near future. You are a very special soul.”
— Lisa Zaptanis, mom of one
“Laurie is an amazing woman! I had the pleasure of consulting with her about my son Elijah, who is 14 and has a dual diagnoses of Down Syndrome and Autism. I was emotionally and physically drained from the challenges I was facing. Laurie listened to me! She let me vent, made me laugh and assured me that what I was feeling was normal. She helped me to realize what I knew all along: My son was just as frustrated as I was and to just be compassionate and positive. What I loved most about talking with Laurie was she gave me advice but didn’t make me feel like I was wrong.
— Deanna Scibilia, mom of one
 
“After speaking with Laurie, I feel like I’ve won the trifecta! She not only eased my worries about switching from ‘homeschooling’ to ‘unschooling’, but helped me understand the effects that our childrens’ adoptions and ADHD and Dyslexia diagnoses have on our relationship and their learning. Up to this point we’ve been schooling our kids in the manner of public school, but doing so at home. No wonder our kids were so unhappy and frustrated! Laurie gave me the confidence to listen to what my children need and not to worry about the naysayers (family and friends). Laurie’s knowledge base and insight is incredible, and it was truly a joy to speak with her.”
— Mitzi Weir, mom of two
Laurie gave me invaluable, concrete information and steps to take to reestablish the parent-child attachment with my son after the trauma of separation that came from my military deployment when he was an infant.”
