Laurie Holland Nessland, LPC

Therapist. Coach. Healer.

Laurie Holland Nessland is a dedicated practitioner of Holistic Wellness specializing in Rapid Stress Reduction. With a wealth of expertise and a passion for empowering her clients, she uses the latest and most effective holistic treatments available. And most importantly, Laurie creates a safe, compassionate space where healing can begin and flourish.


Her path to this mind-body work began when she was diagnosed with cancer and facing treatment. At a friend’s recommendation, she read a book about the power of gratitude, even in the face of difficulty. Begrudgingly, she began a regular gratitude practice which led to a profound sense of peace, easing her fears, and surprising her doctors with her resilience. That was when Laurie decided to explore this intimate connection between the mind and body, and help others on their healing journeys.


Her passion for helping others extends beyond her practice. Laurie has spent over two decades working with children and adolescents to understand and address the unique needs of young minds. She has volunteered her time and expertise conducting workshops that provide essential tools for children dealing with trauma and grief in Kenya and Zambia over four month-long trips with Compassionate Global Outreach. 

Laurie finds joy in a number of outdoor activities, including hiking, powerlifting, camping, and yoga. Her love and appreciation for nature and wildlife photography, combined with her adventurous spirit, fuels her passion for exploration and connection with nature.Ready to embark on your journey to holistic well-being?
