Realize Psychotherapy

Laura Wilhoit, Ph.D., PMH-C

Clinical Psychologist, PSY 26656


Hello and welcome!

If you have made it here, you know something needs to change. But you might feel unsure about the best path forward.  It can be hard to know where to start. I'm here to help with that. If you book a free 15-minute consultation, we can determine if I'm the best person to help you or if there’s someone I can refer you to that would be.  Below is some information about me and what I do and how I can help.

Helping People:

Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, or parenting challenges, I want to help you reach your goals—whatever they may be. I've also worked extensively with various addictive or substance use disorders. I will customize your treatment plan to help you address your unique struggles using a combination of your strengths, your support system, and new tools and strategies.

Helping Parents:

Having children added a new perspective to my practice which has improved my ability to offer support to other parents. Parenting is one of the most meaningful adventures we can embark on and also one of the most harrowing. (I mean, will I ever really sleep again??) My three kids inspire and motivate me every day to show up for them and try to be the best version of myself.

Society does not give parents enough support. It's easy to feel isolated, stressed, and unsure how to show up the way you want to as a parent. If your mental health is affecting your ability to parent, you're not alone, and I can help.

Parenting isn't about being perfect; it's about consistently showing up, doing our best, and apologizing when we make mistakes. Having (at least) one neurodivergent/high needs child has helped me learn about myself as well as the challenges all parents face. We need to have our own tools in place in order to model life skills and then teach those skills to our kids. Therapy is a safe place to focus on you, so you can focus on your kids and enjoy parenting more.
