Laura Kaltwasser is more than just a creative neuroscientist and passionate psychologist; she’s a force to be reckoned with in the world of brain science. When you meet her, it’s easy to see why – her energy is infectious, and her enthusiasm for understanding the human mind is palpable.

Growing up, Laura was always fascinated by how people thought and felt. She spent hours poring over books on psychology, trying to understand what made people tick. As she got older, her curiosity only grew stronger, leading her to pursue degrees in both neuroscience and psychology. She studied psychology, communication science and neuroscience in Berkeley and Berlin.

It wasn’t until she started working as a researcher that Laura truly found her passion. She was amazed by the complexity of the brain and its ability to adapt and change over time. Her research focused on using creativity as a tool for improving mental health outcomes in patients with neurological disorders.

But Laura didn’t stop there. As someone who has struggled with anxiety herself, she knew firsthand how crucial it was to have access to quality mental health care. So alongside her research work, she also became a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in anxiety disorders.

Through all of this work – both as a researcher and clinician – Laura has remained committed to finding new ways to help people improve their lives through better understanding their brains. Whether through groundbreaking research or one-on-one therapy sessions, she approaches each challenge with boundless creativity and determination.

And while Laura may spend most of her days buried in scientific journals or working closely with patients, don’t let that fool you into thinking she’s all work and no play. In fact, when she’s not busy changing the world through neuroscience and psychology, you’ll often find Laura hiking through the mountains or sailing the recycling raft Panther Ray through Berlin’s water ways.

In short: if you’re looking for someone who can help you unlock your inner potential while also being an absolute blast to hang out with…well then look no further than Dr. Laura Kaltwasser.
