In Life Coaching with Rev. Laura, I learned how to take responsibility for my life and my actions. The great thing about this type of coaching is, it’s more about bringing my truth out and my beliefs, wants and desires. I can still hear her saying”I have nothing to teach”… yet, she has truly taught me so much. I gained my power back and learned tools to live life fully. I move through things now instead of getting stuck in them. It changed my life.
Now, finishing up with the New Light Sanctuary Interfaith Ministry training, I feel like I’m embarking on a whole new adventure and chapter of my life. I am so proud to be a part of something that Rev. Laura has created. It’s filled with life, creativity and love towards humanity and in my life, that’s who I want to be.
Thank you Rev. Laura for being a radiant light in my life! I love you!

It gives me great pleasure to write these words on behalf of Reverend Laura Tria. As her student, under New Light Sanctuary, I feel qualified to speak on both her dedication to her students, and her commitment to her teaching skills.
As a Seminary Teacher, I am particularly impressed with her intellectual initiative and the tenacity with which she serves. My assessments of Reverend Laura’s abilities are confirmed by the other students. I’ve had occasion to hear about her work from other students, and all comment upon her excellent teaching skills.
I know that Reverend Laura has a deep commitment to helping others negotiate personal challenges, and a sincere dedication to fostering positive change. For these reasons, I feel confident in saying that her students will go on to be successful spiritual leaders, and this includes me as well.

They say when the student is ready, the teacher shows up. When we first started our sessions I knew there was a place that wanted to be in my life, but felt as though I only had a few of the pieces in what that looked like to my minds eye. Over the time we have spent together, you helped clear up so many uncertainties and helped me begin to create a life I desire. You have taught me that it is ok to be exactly who I am and that once I’ve accepted that person, I would then have the ability to improve from there. You showed me that life is beautiful…from all angles. I am so grateful to know you and to have you in my life. You are a beautiful person, making a difference in peoples lives, your talents go way beyond my expectations of a life coach and I want to thank you for being there for me.
With much love and gratitude,
I have had the honor of having Laura in my life for over a year.
Shortly after my brother passed away I realized that I needed to talk to
someone to make sense of my life as I now knew it. I tried going to a
counselor then a doctor but nothing was working. Finally I was
introduced to Laura and we connected right away. Her style is like any
other I've come accross- unconventional because life is not
conventional! Since then I have continued to see Laura on a regular
basis. The best thing I have learned is how to deal with life in a
clear manner. As life continues to move forward so do our
conversations. She continues to be a great support through my daily
trials and tribulations of everyday life. Laura is one of the most
nonjudgmental and caring individuals I have ever met. There is not a
day that goes by that I don't "use" something that I have learned from
Laura and for that I will be forever grateful!!
I was attending a wedding years ago in which Laura was the Reverend. It was at that moment that I noticed the calm and gentle way she captured her audience. She married me a year later. I hired her as my 'Life Coach' about a year ago. Laura has given me tools to see things differently, react differently and move forward in a new light. She is like a friend who guides you in the right direction without any judgement. She doesn't tell you what she thinks you should do....in fact she doesn't even give advice (unless you ask!) What she does is introduces you to a way of living, a new understanding of those around you - she challenges all you think you know and introduces you to what you don't know you don't know...
She has become my friend, my gateway to new and greater things.
I just wanted to say thank you for all that you do having a good friend like you. I’m blessed to have you in my life, blessed to have someone who God has gifted as my friend. Someone who shows me how to bring clarity to my life, someone who allows me to talk and allows me to draw my own conclusions..
I sat down several times with my fingers hovering over the key board, trying to think of what to say about you and all that you do. I tried to summarize you, but my fingers froze in place. How can one put into words what you give to others? You show others how to bring out the best in themselves. Being in your presence brings out the best in others. The air that surrounds you is filled with love, possibilities, wonderment, peace, harmony and aa-haa! Moments.
You allow people to see themselves from the inside out without judgment.
People feel comfortable enough to speak what’s on their minds, knowing that the finger of judgment won’t be pointed in their faces.
How do I put into words all the things that you do, that seem so effortless? Like second nature, maybe you were here before and this is second nature to you. It’s been over a week now, and it feels like trying to describe the moon. You know all the effects and power it has, but how do you summarize it? Amazing! Yeah that’s a start.
Umm? How do I summarize you? I’m going to have to get back to you on that...
I came to Laura in a state of lost existence, ,some may say life love purpose . I lived many lives preexisting and as so coinciding and coexisting all at the same time. My paths have been filled with idealistic views of life and death and respect. Governed by laws of underground natures. Some say regrets, not I. What I did and where I went was always what had to be done. I was labeled and perceptions drafted. I even saw someone title as Laura was before a spiritual guide since I tired of psycho analysis by dummies. I say dummies due to the fact that individuality and unique humanity and outlandish thought process were marked insanity and looked upon as needing to be placed away under the blanket of normalcy. Instead of being marveled at and helped to realize that there is nothing wrong with a different brain but discussions on seeing a different approach at things rather than just being improper and wrong. Laura gave me such conversations without ease I do admit, and much frustration, I am an intelligent individual who looks at every angle and loophole and pushes it to the limit, although threw my studies of all aspects of the human condition, I was aware of most of the discussions, found myself waiting for the point, going…I know all this already, tell me something new. The application was lost. Saying the same thing worded differently makes such a difference. Laura sees so much in me and I feel in my gut I am here for something greater. I sit back in search of simplicity some say afraid of greatness, I’m not sure. I found the love of my life and was in turmoil with my marriage when I went to Laura. My marriage was not reconciled but due to circumstances I learned to accept it was not in my power to reconcile. Love is not enough and poor choice in judgments for counseling the mannerism not the counselor did not help either. I lost myself in the attempts blamed Laura for the collapse of my marriage, the way in which we went about counseling was incorrect and horrible for my nerves. Laura learned a lesson as well although none of her decisions were with anything less than honorable, they came at a cost. As I say again it was not her fault for the circumstances and the fact that she learned a valuable lesson and came to me and owned it is the most respectful honorable thing counselors don’t do so in that alone I cherish and hold Laura in the highest regard as a counselor and a friend.
I searched for someone with all the answers truth be told, no one has the answers and we are all humans making human mistakes. So in an imperfect world I found someone who helped me by being herself and not pretending to be perfect. Teaching and learning I went further with all new knowledge and tools to be the man I was striving to be. My demons clawed at me on a daily basis and the dead shadowed over me and I let go didn’t care anymore. I bit my pride and went to see her. Felt better as disgusted as I was with what had occurred. My gut told me I was where I needed to be. We may not agree with one another on many matters but we give each other the respect of the others opinions and understand as such threw communication. I am at this point in my life a man who is missing a portion of himself without my wife. I am accepting that she is gone and of all the things that were not as perfect as I perceived but alas she is in my soul till death do us part life moves and I am moving with it. I am still looking for simplicity and angering Laura for not doing what I am meant to. I am a student of humanity and am not the same man I was and in this transition flipflop to the dark side for the rush and I recognize now the need to hold the respect I feel I earned as a bad guy, in the guise of I wanna be a better man. I truthfully am scared to lose that fear for what will I be I know a world were its better to be feared than loved, although I am a hopeless romantic I truly only understand it as a chemical feeling threw physical. One day Laura, I will learn to love myself until that day I am always moving...your friend Justin
