Life invites us to participate
It sets the rules
We choose our response
Crisis leads to change
Are you ready?
Many of us let a crisis chase us while we hunt around for escape. This cycle rarely leads to true relief. Therapy is the work of learning how to stop the desperate reaction that keeps us stuck.
How I Work
We all need help
seeing our blindspots
My work provides a safe haven where we can explore the nature of the problem. It includes incisive reflection intended to elicit your own life-changing insight.
There's no right and only way to die
There's your way
Death is the thing we put off thinking about - we avoid talking about. Fighting with death is fighting with the nature of life. The whole thing is both deeply personal and plainly communal. Let’s open up the conversation, within ourselves and with each other.
Laurie Riepe, MA, LMHC, offers psychotherapy in private practice with couples, individuals, teens and groups. Working deeply and extensively in a transformative process, she supports her clients to explore the human experience within the context of freedom. Her background and training includes Eastern and Western contemplative practices, yoga, Existential Psychology and Liberation Theory.
Following her husband’s use of the Death with Dignity option in 2011, Laurie deepened her study of thanatology and conscious death. Through workshops, speaking engagements and writing, Laurie shares the rich, nuanced and vital conversation about choice and responsibility that lies at the center of our right to a death with dignity. In this capacity, Laurie has delivered presentations to audiences, ranging from pastors to end-of-life volunteers to intentional aging groups.
