Comfyshoes-I know that Dr. Laura, the famous radio talk show host had a doctorate in physiology which is why she is referred to as Dr. Laura.
She also has a family therapy counseling degree and licensing. She offers a no nonsense approach and requires her callers to be honest with their problems.
She defends children and always tries to make parents understand things from their perspective, which is truly unique.
For example, she tells her listeners that if the parents divorce and they have children under 18, then they should not remarry until their children are adults because divorce is very traumatic to children and added another spouse or even additional children would take the focus off the child and would further hurt the child.
She tries to keep families together, but acknowledges that if there is abuse then it is understandable that the marriage end.She has had her marriage and family counseling license for over 20 years.
