“You are a godsend.  Before we started, I was struggling with past injuries and finding the motivation to take care of myself without focusing on weight loss.  With your help, I got to a place in 12 weeks that I had never achieved, even in physical therapy. I feel stronger, more in tune with my body, and more confident. You taught me how to work in a way that is difficult but still safe for my body, and for that I am eternally grateful.” -Calista N.


Trauma Informed Programs

My mission is to increase access to trauma-informed training for women and genderqueer individuals living with trauma, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.  Increasing access means making trauma-informed training more readily available through sliding-scale pricing options, and by providing continuing education to movement practitioners as how trauma impacts their clients, and thereby their work.

Trauma-Informed Personal Training  Sessions


Smart and thoughtful strength training can reduce the physiological impact of trauma on the body. As my personal training client, I will create an individualized training program for you that reflects your fitness goals, while meeting your nervous system's needs day-to-day. Personal training sessions are 60 minutes long and are ideal for people who want to learn how to train safely, efficiently, and effectively. Additionally, I will teach you how to become more embodied outside of the gym, and how to use body-based self regulation techniques as you go about your day.

Personal training is open to women and genderqueer individuals of all fitness levels and abilities.

Remote Personal Training Packages 


I offer remote training for people that want to work with me and are comfortable training without a personal trainer by their side. This month-to-month package includes an initial assessment, a custom 4-week training program tailored to meet your fitness goals and nervous system needs, 2 coaching calls, and a weekly email check-in.

These coaching calls and email check-ins are an opportunity for us to review and adjust your movement form, talk about embodied movement, as well as discuss self-care strategies and self-regulation techniques you may find helpful in your day-to-day life.

These sessions are conducted online via Zoom.

Continuing Education


Increasing access to trauma-informed personal training means not just making it affordable to more folks, but making it more readily available by increasing the number of trauma-informed personal trainers and coaches.

Small Group Classes with Laura through Women's Strength Coalition


In conjunction with Women’s Strength Coalition, I will be offering a sliding scale trauma-informed strength training class for women and genderqueer individuals living with PTSD, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. 

During our time together I will also teach you how to become more embodied outside of the gym, and how to use body-based self regulation techniques as you go about your day.
