Shawn and Laure Schwartz started The Healing House of Saint Paul in May 2010. It was a dream, made reality, to create a safe space for people to do body, mind, and spiritual healing of any past or recent trauma symptoms in their lives. It is a not-for-profit organization committed to integrating complementary healing modalities. Fees are negotiated based upon income. To learn more about our Mission, follow the link: Our Mission.

My name is Laure Schwartz. I am a certified Spiritual Director, having received my graduate certificate from St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota. I integrate spirit and body wellness by incorporating Somatic Experiencing (SE). I have completed the Intermediate training of SE. In May 2015, I am finishing my Master's in Clinical Psychology at Adler Graduate School in Richfield with the completion of my thesis: Healing Attachment Trauma: When Words Are Not Enough.

I am aware of the importance of uncovering and honoring the unconscious and any previous woundings in my work as a Spiritual Director and student of Holistic Mental Health. What we are unaware of makes decisions for us and we then follow old, false patterns. Please read more about my style in the link on this site, Spiritual Direction and Healing Trauma.
