She strives to provide the very best services, classes, workshops, & events.
Laura was raised in a dual religious household - Catholic and Russian Orthodox. After 10 years of Catholic school and years of finding her spiritual path, Laura became a Spiritualist and practices many Buddhist principles.
Laura's Psychic Mediumship ability runs in her family. Her gifts were seen early on as a young child which frightened her, because she did not understand her gifts. However, it wasn't until a traumatic divorce, her gifts flourished. Her grandmother and aunt were also very gifted and used their healing abilities and mediumship to help others. Her grandmother read tea leaves and her aunt was a palm reader. Both her mother and father are also very gifted in their connections to spirit and use them to help heal people in the healthcare fields.
She has studied with many local and international mediums, and is a frequent guest speaker and medium at many of the local Spiritualist Churches in RI, CT, and MA, many area South Shore venues, as well as Florida.

Laura's goal is to have a positive impact in this world, make a difference in people's lives and find simple preventative cures for complex problems and assist the body to heal itself as it was designed to do.
Her desire to help others stems from her daughter born with a variety of health challenges including a food sensitivity to almost everything. It all started with a premonition dream she had when she was 3 months pregnant. She dreampt about key family members who had passed that she has never met before but were holding her daughter showing her the serious health issues of her daughter. She immediately knew this was not a normal dream, but a visit from the other side warning her about a serious problem with the baby.
Fortunately, it was with Laura's training and mother's instinct that pushed her forward and with help of family in the medical field, she discovered her daughter had a serious potential life threatening internal birth defect that required urgent surgery at the age of 3 months.
The experience changed her family's lives forever and led Laura to become interested in food sensitivities and what she calls "an under-diagnosed and unrecognized field heading towards epidemic levels due to all the chemically and genetically modified foods, over-processing, over-vaccinating, and the overuse of anti-bacterial soaps." (New England Business Bulletin; Pamela Berard; Nov 2010)
