Laura Dermer, LCSW
PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR INDIVIDUALS AND COUPLES
Welcome

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

I offer a highly personalized approach, tailored to each person's individual needs.  I give objective, empathic feedback to help my clients discover and achieve their goals.  Most importantly, I provide a safe, comfortable, supportive environment in which to collaborate with my clients.

Some of the areas in which I specialize include:

  • Eliminating Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety

  • Premarital and Marital Therapy and Consultation

  • Working with Single Adults to Improve and Build Relationships

  • Dealing With Life Transitions Such as Marriage, Having Children, Launching or Changing A Career, Job Loss, Divorce, Retirement, and Aging.

  • Build Self-Esteem

  • Facilitating Healthy Grieving After a Loss

  • Career Success

  • Managing Stress and Increasing Coping Skills

  • Family Counseling

  • Assisting Parents in Gaining Knowledge and Skills for Raising Resilient Children

  • Overcoming and Managing the Effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Supervising Other Clinicians (I am SIFI Certfied)

As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. You will learn how to be confident and build self-esteem.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
