Executive Administrative Assistant/Billing Specialist for Waves of Peace Counseling Services. Laura has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from UCLA and a Master of Arts Degree in Psychology from Pepperdine University. She has over 9 years of experience in this field and does an excellent job minimizing the time necessary clients have to spend interacting with their insurance companies. If the therapist is not in network with the client’s insurance and the client is paying us up front and needs to send information to their insurance company for reimbursement, Laura handles the necessary paperwork saving the client precious time and inconvenience. She is the buffer between the insurance companies and both the therapists and clients. This allows the clinical staff to focus on what they love best, working with the clients. It also allows clients to focus on their therapeutic needs rather than insurance issues. Laura is a great asset to the team.
