Laura Williams, PRC, CPC-c, is a certified professional coach. She has further training through the American Association for Sex Addiction Therapy (AASAT), specific to treating sexual addicts and their partners, and through the Association for Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS). Perhaps more important than her formal training, however, is the fact that Laura understands the extraordinary and devastating effects that sexual addiction has on partners of addicts, their values, their self-image, and their relationship; as well as on the partner’s health and sense of well-being.
Laura’s strongest desire is to help other women travel this road in a more effective, more powerful way than most know how to accomplish on their own. Many women and couples flounder for years, going it alone, until they find real help and real strategies that work. Laura knows the importance of having someone to talk to, someone who understands, who won’t judge, and who has a clearer, more objective understanding of addiction, as well as a long-range view of recovery and of what is possible. It is for this purpose that she founded Crossway Coaching, LLC.
Laura has 25 years of experience coaching adults with traumatic physical injuries and the emotional challenges that accompany those, so it seemed a natural step to help women impacted by sexual addiction following her own journey through betrayal trauma. Her approach is trauma informed with a focus on solutions-based practical strategies and values-based decision making. She is also a trained Stephen Minister, bringing a Biblical world view to those who also value this perspective. She is comfortable coaching women whether they are moving forward with their addicted spouse or alone, but her true passion is for the healing of the marriage.
Laura works in close association with Restoring Hearts Counseling. She is our primary referral source for women. You can schedule an appointment with her by calling (804)466-4357.
