Laura White


About Me

Hi! My name is Laura White, LCSW. I am licensed in NY. I have had extensive experience with children in Residential Placement, for counseling regarding separation from home, long-term planning (return home, other relatives, Foster Care, Adoption). In other areas, I have worked with children experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, PTSD and Trauma, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse, addictions-child and/or family, social anxiety, sexual identity and self-esteem. This age group is fascinating, presenting unique situations especially in the past year-loneliness, fear of covid, loss of family income, loss of family and peer interactions, and changes in schooling. I have worked with children who have lost parents to Aids, Cancer, and other disabling illnesses. I would be delighted to work with your child/children.
I am supportive and caring, and will focus on the needs of your child. I utilize Person-Centered Therapy, Family Systems, the Socratic Method, and Motivational Interviewing. I am available for after-school or weekend sessions. Thank you!

Laura told me right at the get go she would be my biggest cheerleader, and so far she has been. I value our sessions, and I see a long relationship with her :)

From one session alone, I can say that Laura is someone that you just want to keep talking to. She is warm, funny, and SO validating. I felt heard, seen, and generally lighter after our chat. Would definitely recommend.

Dr. White has been very supportive, a great listener and takes her time into understanding things so she can better assess the situation.
I love her spirit and dedication and especially her lovely and genuine smile which makes me feel very comfortable when talking to her.
