Laura M. Worrel, M.D.
"I enjoy working with patients to help improve their lives and meet their individual goals."
Dr. Worrel joined CCA in July of 2006. She practices general adult and consultation-liaison psychiatry. After attending college at the University of Virginia and medical school at the Mayo Clinic, she completed her psychiatry residency at the University of North Carolina Hospitals. Dr. Worrel is board certified in psychiatry.
Based at our Midlothian clinic, Dr. Worrel has broad interests in psychiatry and sees primarily adults, ages 18 and up. She understands her role as a psychiatrist to be part of a team that is working together to treat mental illness and improve the lives of her patients. This team always includes the patient and often includes the patient’s therapist, primary care doctor, social support network, and others. Dr. Worrel believes that biological therapies (primarily medications) and psychotherapy, often used in combination, are both valuable in treating patients. Her approach to psychotherapy draws upon several schools of thought and is tailored to the individual patient.
