Laura Morris

I currently attend Virginia Commonwealth University’s Masters of Social Work Program. I am pursuing a clinical placement with the hopes of eventually becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I was also recently approved to receive the certificate in Gender Violence Intervention upon graduation. While in school, I currently work at an emergency shelter which serves survivors of intimate partner and sexual violence. I provide services such as case management, emotional support, and safety planning to residents of the shelter. I have also completed an internship providing hospital accompaniment to survivors of violence. I provide similar resources to clients during these interactions, but my relationship with them and allotted time to build rapport is much shorter.


I would be happy to speak to students about school, work, or this internship. They can reach me at this email,
