Laura Humpf is passionate about supporting people heal the effects of individual, collective, intergenerational and systemic trauma as well as cultivating and nourishing resilience.

She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in working a wide range of challenges including depression, grief, shame, and the struggle to love the body one lives in. As a certified Yoga Therapist she utilizes body-based approaches to healing, which can decrease pain, emotional and physical, and trauma symptoms (i.e. insomnia, panic, dissociation, etc.) while increasing acceptance, courage and the capacity to meet life with compassion and choice.

Laura works from trauma-informed, consent-based and liberatory approaches and is committed to clients experiencing agency, empowerment and freedom. 

Laura, born and raised outside of Chicago (on Miama, Peoria and Potawatomi land) and calling the Coast Salish and Duwamish land of Seattle home since 2004, turned to Yoga in 2002 after struggling with burnout and insomnia. She started teaching Yoga in 2004 and has been a mental health therapist and Yoga therapist since 2007. She was the steward of Rainier Beach Yoga, a studio focusing on resilience and social and racial justice from 2015-2020.

This work fills Laura up, and she is grateful to have the opportunity to share it with others. She is a daily meditator, animal lover, voracious reader and hiker. She looks forward to working with you.
