Laura is a Brooklyn based artist, compassionate teacher, and dedicated healer. In addition to being a certified Reiki Master, Breathwork facilitator, and Institute for Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Laura holds a BFA in acting from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.

She teaches Breathwork and Reiki at Maggie Flanigan Studio and Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop. She is the owner and founder of Reiki for Actors and Pensiero Healing Arts. Her practice specializes in working with people in high stress environments to help them overcome the anxieties and compulsive patterns that often occur as a result of their job. Laura uses a combination of Reiki, guided visualization and the breath to coax the body into a deeply relaxed state allowing it to heal. The mind becomes quiet and the body relaxes which heightens focus and endurance.

As a high performer who has struggled with stress management, anxiety, and addictive behaviors, she understands how important it is to clear these energy blocks in order for passion and productivity to thrive. Laura’s professional mission is to give her clients the tools needed to lead a fuller, more empowered, and creative life.
