Discover the Laurel Life Difference
Laurel Life helps all stakeholders – from individuals to families to schools – to realize their full potential. Here’s what sets us apart:

  • Trauma-informed interventions. Most individuals in need of behavioral health services are trauma survivors. By addressing trauma and dealing with the root causes of problem behaviors, Laurel Life makes a positive, lasting impact. Nationally recognized as a proven approach to behavioral health treatment and classroom management, trauma-informed care (TIC) focuses on treatment partnerships and aims to increase an individual’s unique strengths and resources.
  • Flexible, collaborative approach. Our skilled and knowledgeable therapists tailor treatment based on an individual’s unique needs and circumstances. We meet you where you are with customized treatment plans that continue to support you as you advance from one level to the next. Through partnerships with family members, teachers, administrators and other stakeholders, we help individuals achieve their goals and maximize independence. 
  • Proven track record. From the outset of any new relationship, we establish metrics to help gauge the progress of our programs. Whether helping individuals reach new milestones or organizations advance their goals, we consistently evaluate the impact of our efforts so we can refine our approach. The result? Higher levels of client satisfaction and success.
