Laslo’s approach blends a humanistic and existential approach to mental health that honours the uniqueness of each person’s experience, while appreciating these struggles are shared features of the human condition. His psychotherapy training includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Narrative Therapy, Prolonged Grief Disorder Therapy (PGDT), and Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
Grounded in a personal practice of mindfulness and exploration into various contemplative traditions, Laslo provides a non-judgemental and safe environment to explore unresolved psychological and emotional challenges that can manifest as a variety of mental health symptoms, relationship challenges, or patterns of self sabotage that can serve as roadblocks to health.
