Circle of Influence

Dr. Laura’s Circle of Influence

Below you will find a list of people and organizations that I believe will be helpful in your journey towards health.

Alternative & Holistic Healers
Golden Tree Holistic - With over twenty years of dedication and study in the fields of holistic, spiritual and creative arts, John Roddy has a commitment to being of service in ways that make a positive contribution toward a healthy and unified humanity. He has expanded his practice into the herbal realm and Qi Gong healing.

Jacqueline Pace - Has dedicated her life in the field of holistic healing arts. She offers guidance, support, practical tools, and inspiration to help others to help themselves to awaken and reclaim their power to create the life experience they desire and deserve. In addition to counseling services she also is an expert cranial sacral practitioner.

Robin Clark - Robin splits her time between coaching and portraits shoots. As a coach, her clients are primarily women and they live all over the country. She offers in-person, phone, and Skype sessions. As a photographer, her work is contemporary beauty and glamour portrait photography. Glamour gets a bad name as we all remember the trauma of early 90s air-brushed glamour shots but those days are over. These days it’s about capturing the most radiant and beautiful version of you, which can radically boost your self-image and self-esteem.


Spiritual Community
The Rodan Foundation - The Rodan Foundation, a spiritual haven supporting individual and collective awakening and empowerment, hosts The Metaphysical Church of Enlightenment at 241 Park Road on Sunday mornings with inspired presentations and excellent activities. (You will find me there most Sundays if you want to visit!) If you would like to watch the most recent lecture visit go to

The Love Awakening - The Love Awakening, also a part of the foundation, is a community based adventure supported by a wonderful and dedicated group of certified teachers who present the "I Love Me" Meditation and offer joyful community acts of service and a yearly festival.
