Laura Pladson, Holistic Counselor

Testimonial Stories

A safe space....


"I  have done a few different styles of therapy for a variety of reasons  but going through the Trailblazing Counseling  with Laura has by far surpassed any other counseling/therapy I have  done. I've neglected my mental health for a while which I feel many  people do and life just caught up to me. I went into Trailblazing with  an open mind and heart which I believe is why I got  so much more out of it. It has me feel more grounded in my space and  understand who I am and who I want to be. Being able to share in a safe  space and getting the tools to help me grow and continue to check in  with myself is amazing. I have told others about  this type of counseling because of how powerful and helpful it has  been! I believe that the brain is one organ that we all fail to keep  healthy and to get that back to align with your heart and soul, you will  see a shift if lifestyle, mood, and outlook."

 No more dark cloud.....


"Laura  has been using Trailblazing Therapy with my daughter for four months  now and I am so grateful. Sarah has suffered from headaches for most of  her life. It was as if she was living  under a dark cloud, not usually feeling well and not being able to  enjoy life to the fullest. She struggled with loss of energy,  irritability, anxiety, depression, and strained relationships with her family. 



Breaking the chains....


"We have tried many therapies and treatments including neurology, chiropractor, acupuncture, mental health counseling, and medications.  These would help for a while and give her some  relief. We would have hope that feeling good could be her new normal,  but before long, symptoms would return. We had done testing and knew  that there wasn’t anything medically wrong with her, which led us to look into energy and spiritual based therapies.  I am so glad we did! Trailblazing has helped her break some of those metaphoric chains that were holding her hostage. It’s as if there is  light in her eyes now that we didn’t see much before. Her energy is  lighter, she is more care-free and isn’t weighed down by pain and anxiety. External factors that used to almost instantly cause her anxiety and thus a headache, no longer affect her. Her  relationships have improved because she just plain feels better! "



Offered insight......


"The fact that Laura is also a licensed counselor just adds to how great this treatment is because where the spiritual forces are helping Laura balance the energy and ridding Sarah of ages-old mental and emotional blocks, Laura can offer insight in  working through any emotional issues that may come up in the process."



Acceptance....


Laura is so easy to talk to and is just  pure in her light and energy. She accepts each person as they are,  knowing we are all just trying to make our way in a world that can be  difficult at times. She truly cares about a person  and just wants people to feel better and live full lives. I so  appreciate all she’s done to get Sarah living a life she enjoys and  deserves!!"     ~ mom, Moorhead,  MN



 I was skeptical...


"I  was a tad skeptical about the trailblazing experience  but after my first session, I was sold. It is absolutely amazing. Each  session has changed my life! I'm not suffering from daily headaches  anymore, I have better relationships with the people I love and I'm not  feeling my anxiety and depression like I did  before this. I've been told that I seem lighter and I honestly feel it.  Leave your skepticism behind and help better yourself, your mind will  be blown!!"     ~ Maddie, Fargo, ND 



We seemed stuck...


"We  had Laura do a home dowsing for us, because we seemed 'stuck'. She was able to tell us that a water filter needed to be  changed and that it was the cause of my stomach trouble. We changed it  and I've felt so much better, since then! She said that the clearing  would help our son to not be so afraid to be alone (which was something I  never even mentioned) and we can definitely  see the difference in him now! I had said in my intention that we  wanted happiness, abundance, health, kids to get along better, job  situation to work out... well, we feel better, are overall happier, kids  get along better, we've been very healthy this horrible  winter, and I've since found a job! It is hard to describe, but it  definitely feels like a weight has been lifted in our home."     ~Serra,  Bismarck, ND
