Laura Eubanks Gambrel, Ph.D., LMFT, LPC
I am an associate professor in the marriage and family therapy program at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. I received my doctorate in marriage and family therapy from Virginia Tech and my master's degree in contemplative psychotherapy from Naropa University. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and a licensed professional counselor. I am also trained as a play therapist. Please see my about me page to learn more about my education, research, teaching, and clinical experience.
My clinical and research interests focus on how to improve couple and family relationships, specifically through mindfulness-based interventions. I specialize in couples therapy, mindful parenting, and the transition to parenthood. I am also an educator and supervisor of master's students and therapists. A list of my recent publications and conference presentations are available on this website.
I developed the Mindful Transition to Parenthood Program and enjoy working with new and expecting parents wherever they are located.
