Laura Rathsmill, LSW, Med

I specialize in:
  • Couples Therapy
  • Sex Therapy
  • LGBTQ+
  • EMDR
My approach in therapy:

Have you felt judged by a therapist for your gender, sexuality, relationship orientation, lifestyle, subculture—or even for just being a bit of a weirdo? I embrace difference of all kinds in my practice and aim to create a space where we will collaborate towards your goals without compromising what makes you who you are. I welcome queer, BIPOC, ethically non-monogamous, kinky, artistic, neurodivergent folks.

My journey:

I have a dual Master’s degree in Human Sexuality and Social Work from Widener University, and I’m happy to assist you in exploring matters both sexual and nonsexual. I help individuals and couples heal from attachment insecurities, infidelity, sexual challenges, communication issues, fostering a more secure connection. I also enjoy working with folks who are ENM, polyamorous, or who are curious about this lifestyle.

I am EMDR trained and would be thrilled to harness this powerful modality to help you heal from PTSD or negative beliefs that might be holding you back.

Outside of the therapy office, you can find me…

Enjoying live music, catching an old movie, browsing for vintage clothing, or dancing. Chunky peanut butter will always be my primary partner.

I am a good fit for you if you’re looking for:
  • Sex/Sexuality Therapy
  • Couples/Relationship Therapy
  • Individual Therapy
  • Trauma Therapy
  • ENM/Polyamory
  • ADHD Therapy
  • Relationship Issues
  • Attachment Insecurity
  • Self-Esteem

I provide a space where we can help you pursue healing and growth while leaving room for fun and laughter. If you think we might be a good fit, please reach out for a free 15-minute consultation. I am currently offering online therapy in Pennsylvania.
