Get to know Larin

Born and raised in Union County, NC, Larin attended UNC Chapel Hill and graduated in 2011. Larin has lived and worked in Austin, TX, Tucson, AZ, Denver, CO, and San Francisco, CA. Larin moved back to Durham in 2018 to earn a Master of Education in School Counseling.

Larin is currently licensed as a k-12 counselor, and has experience working with children and adolescents in a variety of roles including teacher, math interventionist, and in-school based mental health. Larin also has experience working as a Crisis Counselor and had the opportunity to work with adults of all ages as they navigated significant life stressors and feelings of suicidal ideation, which now informs her work in the private practice space.

As a counselor, Larin’s primary goal is to create an affirming and comfortable space for folks to process life’s highs and lows without judgment, and to build skills and resilience as they continue to move forward. Larin believes counseling is a highly collaborative process, one that is made possible with strong relationships formed with intentionality and compassion.

Larin enjoys helping people express themselves in a variety of ways, including books, games, role-playing, and music/visual arts. Larin believes our immediate and systemic environment plays a significant role in our mental health. Larin wants to be mindful of the power differential that can be created in a counseling space, and believes all voices and identities should be valued and celebrated. Larin believes that personal connection can be a powerful healing force, and that people are so much more than a diagnosis or collection of symptoms.

Larin begins the counseling process by trying to understand each client’s unique goals (although it’s okay if you’re not sure yet!). Larin has experience working with issues around anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicidal ideation, interpersonal relationships, boundary setting and self-care, self-worth/self-esteem, and life transitions. Larin feels that it’s SO important that we remember to see and value the essential ‘humanness’ in each other, recognizing that we come already equipped with a unique blend of strengths, experiences, and internal resources. There’s always room to learn and grow, and Larin hopes to continue to deepen her knowledge of somatic therapy, the mind/body connection, attachment work, and trauma-informed counseling practices.

In Larin’s spare time, she enjoys reading as much as she possibly can, going on long hikes, trying new restaurants, and being obsessed with her dogs (hopefully an animal-assisted therapy certification is in her immediate future!).
