Meet Laurel Marshall, LMFT

A licensed marriage and family therapist with experience and training working with couples using Emotion Focused Therapy since 2010. Laurel has private practices in Oregon and Washington where she works with couples to identify and heal relationship dynamics that cause them distress, deepen vulnerability, intimacy and foster a secure and sacred connection with each other.

I’ve had about 10 counselors throughout my life. Laurel is simply the best! I’ve counseled with Laurel individually and as a couple. She helped to change my life. Laurel is professional, caring gifted as a counselor. Let her help you change your life.”


Counseling is a cornerstone of our marriage. Laurel is the perfect partner to help us consistently tackle hard, but meaningful conversations to deepen our connection. We wouldn’t have the positive communication habits we have without her.”


We came to Laurel as newlyweds, and she helped us form a strong foundation that will weather any storm to come. My wife and I often refer back to her words and practice her methods, not only as a couple, but as individuals as well. Laurel has made a lasting impact on us that we cherish.”
