Laura Doyle

Therapist

Laura is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been working with children, adolescents
and young adults since 1994. A graduate of Mount Holyoke College and New York
University School of Social Work, she has spent 25 years as a school counselor in
Connecticut.

As a therapist, Laura employs an eclectic approach, as every person and situation is
unique; it is important to tailor the approach to each person’s unique needs. Trained in
psychodynamic therapy, which seeks to understand what motivates behavior, Laura
believes that the most important aspect of treatment is to create a relationship in which the client can feel understood in a non-judgemental, safe, compassionate and supportive
environment. Then, Laura and her client work collaboratively toward resolution and might
employ strategies of supportive therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused
therapy, or mindfulness. Laura has an interest and expertise in working with students with
ADHD and the often accompanying issues of executive functioning, anxiety, and
depression.

As a parent of two college age students and through her work with young adults, Laura has
a multifaceted understanding of the issues students are confronted with, which have notably
been complicated further by the pandemic.
