Education and Training:
After receiving her BBA in Marketing from the University of Iowa and finding nothing but dissatisfaction in the world of commerce, Lauri began her own search for self-knowledge. As part of this search, Lauri heard her call to active ministry and pursued her ministerial education and training through the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay/ Silver Lake College and her training and credentials as a Spiritual Director through the Norbertine Center for Spirituality in DePere. After fifteen years as a Catholic lay-minister; specializing in adult spiritual formation, small faith communities, pastoral counseling, liturgy and sacraments; Lauri left institutional employment to establish a secular ministry where she could respond to the spiritual needs of a wider audience. In 2005, in support of a lifelong calling, Lauri was ordained as an Interfaith Minister through the Universal Life Church in Modesto, CA. In March of 2015, Lauri completed her Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Studies (Psychology), with an emphasis in mindfulness, creativity, and active imagination practices, through Sofia University.
Lauri is the author of seven books, including Authentic Freedom – Claiming a Life of Contentment and Joy and is widely published in the field of self-improvement and personal development.

Testimonials from Lauri’s clients:
I had been to counselors on and off for 10 years and spiritual counseling with Lauri hit the bulls eye during our first session; after our second session, the grief that plagued me for over 10 years was gone, as it was my soul that needed recognition and healing – prior counselors only addressed the “mind”; Lauri helped me holistically. As a result, I am me again. I am whole, and I embrace life. KU Oshkosh
I have had the pleasure of attending all of Lauri’s classes as well as receiving personal spiritual counseling. Her ability to actively listen, assist you in plumbing the depths of your own heart and mine the gold that is deep inside of you allows you to find your own path to healing. Lauri doesn’t tell you how to feel or think, but allows you to savor your own truth! Linda S. Oshkosh
After my thirty-five year relationship suddenly and unexpectedly ended, I sought Lauri’s help in dealing with the all-consuming grief, fear, anger, despair and confusion. Lauri provided a safe haven where I was able to face the truth about myself, my life and my relationship. This has been tremendously healing, empowering and freeing. Lauri’s presence and influence in my life has been a deeply profound gift for which I will be eternally grateful. Diane K. Oshkosh
Authentic Freedom helps me everyday to overcome my fears and doubts and to move forward. Lauri is wonderful at helping me think through my insecurities. I do things more now from my own intuition rather than what “everyone else” does or tells me to do. I am more at peace because I have less struggle with the ego and know that the Divine is always there to take care of me. I just need to listen. Debbie S. Neenah
