A Message From Laura Duncan, LICSW
Owner / Clinical Director
I’m so fortunate to have a job that I love. It’s an honor to sit with my clients and serve as an active participant in helping them to problem solve around life’s challenges. I have witnessed so many of my clients find the courage to heal or work through current life issues or past wounds. As therapists, our own personal struggles often drive our passions and inform our work with clients. In 2009 I experienced a miscarriage, followed by a very anxiety-ridden pregnancy. After the birth of my daughter a year later I also coped with postpartum anxiety with OCD traits. I was stunned to realize how few resources were available to me and other women dealing with these issues. After that point, I made a commitment to educate myself around pregnancy and postpartum mood disorders, and to serve as a resource for women in our community going forward.
In 2018 I founded Women’s Counseling of Nashua. My vision included
offering services for women through our ever-so-complex life cycle. I also wanted to provide an atmosphere of inclusion, where survivors of trauma, women of color, and members of the LGBTQ community would feel comfortable and welcome in our practice. My hope is that Women’s Counseling of Nashua will serve as a catalyst for
every woman to find her voice, her place, her unique self in a space
that is accepting and safe.
Thanks for reading about us. I look forward to meeting you.
