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.
Starting off so far Laura has been a great support for my daughter and her need. The expertise in the areas of needs is perfect. I look forward to the long terms benefits and successes from her therapy
She is excellent. Very accommodative and understanding.
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.
Loved our session! She was really understanding, funny, supportive, and gave actionable feedback that made me think twice about an issue I was facing. Highly recommend!
Really enjoyed my session with Laura! She shared great insights.
