Laura Moore, M.Psy.
Echoing the sentiments of Brené Brown, I believe that “Loving ourselves through the process of owning our story is the bravest thing we will ever do.” Embracing our narrative’s entirety—its peaks, valleys, and winding paths—requires vulnerability, courage, and an unwavering commitment to self-discovery. As your therapist, I am deeply honoured to serve as a guide on your journey to uncovering, understanding, and reclaiming your story.
My dedication to psychology is rooted in the belief that, while each of us is woven from unique threads of experiences and perceptions, there’s a universal longing for connection, understanding, and authenticity. I strive to create a therapeutic space where individuals and couples can explore their challenges, from the distress of relational boundaries and conflicts to the deep emotional complexities of infertility, adoption, and the peripartum and postpartum periods.
I warmly welcome clients from all walks of life, embracing their unique concerns, histories, and identities. My practice is a space for adults working through the myriad of challenges and difficulties related to mood, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief and loss, personality, relationships, life transitions, workplace and school functioning (burnout and performance), and self-compassion and growth. I have particular interests in trauma and interpersonal and couple relationship functioning, such as intimacy and sex, infidelity, separation and divorce.
Throughout our sessions, I prioritize active listening, grounding our conversations in empathy, respect, and validation. I understand that the layers of our past often hold the keys to our present, and I seek to weave these insights into our work together. Drawing from evidence-based modalities—including Adlerian, psychodynamic, attachment-based, and more—I craft interventions tailored to resonate with your unique needs and aspirations.
I have received specialized training from the University of Guelph’s Intensive Sex Therapy Training Institute. This training has enhanced my capacity to support individuals and couples navigating the intricate landscapes of intimacy, boundaries, and relational distress, and allows us to ensure a deepened focus on relational dynamics together.
In the last decade before pursuing my graduate studies in psychology, I conducted psychological and psychometric assessments for day treatment and outpatients in both public and privately funded agencies. Additionally, I supervised a structured residential treatment program for youths aged seven to eighteen. In working with the youth and support staff, I provided and directed a high level of assessment, effective treatment planning, review, evaluation and support.
I have completed my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Adler Graduate Professional School in Toronto. My research focused on cultivating spousal attunement post-trauma. I hold an Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Trent University and a postgraduate degree in Youth Corrections and Interventions from Durham College. My previous contributions to academic research examined the intricate relationship between language and cognitive development in children (both typically-functioning and neurodiverse).
In addition to my role as a therapist at CFIR under the supervision of Dr. Lila Hakim, C. Psych. I am an adjunct faculty member at Adler Graduate Professional School in Toronto. I am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association, Ontario Psychological Association, Ontario Society of Adlerian Psychology, and the North American Society of Adlerian Psychology.
In this journey of self-discovery and growth, I invite you to collaborate, reflect, and pave the path toward a life that resonates with your authentic self. Whether you’re facing relational distress, navigating the emotional tides of intimacy or fertility challenges, or seeking a deeper understanding of self, know that you’re not alone. I’m here, ready to walk this path with you.
