Meet the Team
We feel lucky and proud to count on such a devoted team whose talents, experience, and kindness are at the service of those who suffer from such debilitating and complex mental conditions.
Dr. Carl J. Bonnett is the founder and Chief Medical Doctor at Klarisana. As a twenty-year veteran of the Army National Guard, Carl saw ketamine therapy as a valuable way to help others in mental and physical distress. His vision of love and compassion gave shape and form to Klarisana, one of the country’s first-ever ketamine clinics, whose purpose is to serve all people who struggle with mental illness and chronic pain regardless of their background or any other discriminating factor.
Laura is a Houston, Texas native and received her Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Psychology with a focus in Neuroscience from Texas State University.
I completed my undergraduate degree at Purdue University in Health and Human Services and my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Regis.
I have experience in helping clients with relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma, abuse, and coping with grief and loss. I work with my clients through various modalities to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I am a firm believer that you are the expert in your life. I didn’t live through your experiences, you did. I see my job as being to walk alongside you and help you sort life out by pointing out themes and asking deepening questions to help guide and support you.
I am from Dallas, TX, and have been practicing as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Colorado since February 2019. I graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Work and Psychology. I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Master of Social Work degree in 2018. My therapeutic style is client-centered, attachment-based, and trauma-informed while utilizing TF-CBT, DBT, IFS, and “inner child” approaches.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from Colorado State University in 2004, and my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Regis University in 2018.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and aim to provide a welcoming, safe space where
you can fully be yourself. I believe we all have the capacity to grow, learn, and change,
and have innate strengths to draw upon. Wherever you are in your journey, I would be
honored to be alongside you. My counseling approach considers your needs and
personality while incorporating theory and techniques from client-centered, cognitive
behavioral, strength-based, and solution-focused therapy. Together we will work to
make positive changes in your life, working in a holistic manner that addresses the mind,
body, emotions, spirit, and social environment.
I look forward to connecting with you!
