I specialize in state-of-the-art, outpatient treatment of stress, anxiety and depression. I also have extensive experience treating patients with bipolar disorder, mood disorders, PTSD and ADHD. Most of my patients work, go to school and are able to live their lives, but have issues that "get in their way." Others experience more significant distress. I treat each person with what he or she needs, whether it is with interpersonal psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, family therapy or medicine. I do not insist my patients stay in therapy for years, as independence is our mutual goal.

I combine my understanding of the sciences, social sciences and humanities to help individuals face their most trying moments effectively: with grace, dignity and compassion. It is an honor and privilege to help my patients, I work to create a warm environment of mutual respect, exploration, self-discovery and self-efficacy.

My practice involves psychotherapy: cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy and/or psychopharmacology. My Ph.D. is in neuroscience, publications include: Anxiety and Suicide; Trauma; Inflammation and Psychiatry, Impulse Control Disorders; ADHD and depression and ADHD and Autism. I have written several text book chapters and served as section editor on American Psychiatric Association publications.

Laura N. Antar, MD, PhD, PLLC's Groups

Adult Psychotherapy Group

Welcome to our interpersonal and anxiety psychotherapy group, an inclusive atmosphere, where we examine and discuss each group member's interpersonal needs with a kind and curious stance. We learn from each other directly and through group interaction (process), building insights into our maladaptive ways of interacting with each other and the world Between sessions we practice interventions that will increase well being and connectedness. Members generally function adequately, but their interpersonal style or anxiety "gets in the way" of their relationships/ interpersonal fulfillment. The aim is to achieve one's potential in work, family, friendships or relationships.
