Hello, I'm laura mui, a licensed marriage and family therapist, parent, daughter, sister, partner, teacher, activist and...! In my practice, Conscious Roots, I offer humor, warmth, compassion, appreciation, equity and authenticity to support people in their journey towards self-awareness, self love, self- acceptance, and self-empowerment. I believe that a person's internal terrain is the least traveled and the most rewarding and impactful for both personal and community transformation.
