Professional statement

Laura Lee is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and certified professional life coach in New York City who welcomes clients between the ages of 18 and 45 to her private practice.

Many individuals who visit Laura are grappling with perfectionism and negative self-concept, which frequently manifests in underlying anxiety. Her clients are often shouldering overwhelming worries about their own inadequacies and capabilities, and might be questioning their life choices and career paths. They also want to explore their identities and family history that inform their beliefs and their perspective on the world. Laura's approach is rooted in mindfulness, and she is also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and able to provide that approach to those who wish to explore it.

In addition to her work with individuals, Laura works with couples who want to reconnect and rediscover their passion. Laura also offers professional partnership counseling to new and aspiring small business owners that want to improve communication, clarify roles and expectations, and create a successful working relationship.

For every client, Laura's practice is informed by race and multiculturalism, as well as identity, family dynamics, relationships, and relational trauma. She looks forward to working with you.
