Alumni Story: Laura Belli

In 2006, I graduated from Richmont and began working with Legacy Strategy, a private practice, under the supervision of Dr. Diane Pearce. Legacy Strategy is a Christian counseling group in Kennesaw, Georgia, that offers specialized individual, family, play, and marital therapy. We provide quality Biblically based counseling that is intentionally integrated into the therapeutic process. One of the reasons why I chose to study at Richmont is the fact that they train students how to integrate Theology and Psychology into the counseling setting.

I treat trauma, self-harm, eating disorders, and dissociative disorders. Young adults and teens are my passion. After graduating I sought advanced training with ISSTD in regards to the treatment of dissociative disorders. Learning and growing never ceases. I have been given the opportunity to speak at schools, churches, lead groups and premarital seminars. Because of the quality education that I received at Richmont, I am able to treat families and individuals in the therapeutic setting and have an influence in the community.

I am in the process of completing the new requirements for LPC supervisors! As of November 2012 I will be supervising students and associates working towards licensure.

Supervising students is my way of giving back to others what was given to me. Encouraging students to meet their potential while giving ethical, quality, professional care is vital for the future of our profession. While at Richmont, I gained the confidence to meet the potential that God put within me. I can honestly say I feel excited every day to be in the field of counseling and to be given the opportunity to be used by God and watch Him intervene daily in the lives of others!
