The type of therapy I practice is about who you are as a person, not just a particular diagnosis you may have. We all struggle at times, whether with unfulfilling relationships, challenges in our professional lives, how we feel about ourselves, or other issues. When we first meet, my goal is to try to understand and appreciate the full context of your situation and not solely the troubling symptoms. I work hard to create a safe, warm, trusting environment. Over time, I'll help you uncover patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may contribute to your current problem.

I work with adults, 18 and older, and feel comfortable treating most clinical issues and diagnoses. I have been trained to use different kinds of therapy. I think it is most important that I listen to you and deliver the approach that will be most helpful in your unique circumstances.

Finally, I believe that group therapy can be a powerful, even transformative experience. I run several therapy groups, and often invite my clients to participate. Thank you for taking the time to learn about my practice and please feel free to contact me with questions or to arrange an appointment.

Laura Kushner's Groups

Interpersonal Therapy Group

In group therapy, I work with anywhere from four to eight clients in the same room at the same time. Group members interact with me as well as other group members, and will be encouraged - but not forced - to share their own experiences and give feedback to others. With my support and guidance as therapist, group member have the opportunity to try new ways of interacting with others.
