Accepting Clients

Hi, I'm Laura. I work in a group practice where we treat a diverse group of clients. I specialize in working with teens, adults and parents.

Therapist in Huntington, NY
Supervised by Kayla Nelson, PsyD

About My Clients

Have you noticed changes in your teen's behaviors? Maybe they are having a hard time coming out of their room, socializing or feeling like themselves. My clients often struggle with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. I work with teens, adults and parents who are feeling overwhelmed and often not "good-enough." I help my clients learn better ways to manage their emotions more effectively and get back to the things that make them feel happy and confident.

My Background and Approach

I have my doctorate in clinical psychology. I am trained in a variety of approaches, but I find the most important element in therapy is my relationship with my clients. I will take the time to get to know you and what is bringing you to therapy. Together, we will identify specific goals you want to reach. I'll be there to provide support and accountability along the way. Sometimes people need a safe space to just share what's on their minds/happening in theirs lives and that's what I try to offer. I want my clients to have space to say whatever they need and get an empathetic, supportive response on the other end. That being said, I also know sometimes people need a little guidance and a push to start making some real changes in their lives. You are going to get that from me as well. I provide concrete tools and suggestions that you then practice and determine if they are right for you!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an advocate for social change and work for a group practice that is always challenging staff to consider the individual experiences of every single client and family member that comes to us. I really love the work I do, knowing that I have an incredible opportunity each time a client or family comes to my therapy room (or virtual room) to show support and advocacy for various communities (LGBTQ+, racial/ethnic groups, religious groups, etc). I believe that all people have the capacity to learn and grow in meaningful ways. It is never too late to make a positive change in your life. I view my clients' stories with empathy and believe that more empathy could truly change the world. So, one step at a time, I am committed to bringing empathy and genuine acceptance to my clients, colleagues and anyone I work with.
