Laura Impert

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW-R

Laura Impert, LCSW has been practicing for over 25 years in the field with primarily students and adults. She has published in the field on grief and loss. Her belief is that therapy is most helpful when patients can understand the arc and narrative of their lives. Goals for any patient are to build perspective and insight, but also to promote agency and autonomy. Over the course of practice in the field, the value she is most interested in promoting is the capacity to be curious and to reflect. These are life long skills to be treasured. Initially trained as a psychoanalyst, she likes using an integrative approach with all patients, such as cognitive techniques to address negative thinking in addition to talk therapy. She believes some patients especially benefit from finding tools to regulate states of distress and heightened emotional arousal, triggered by anxiety and panic states, and during periods of heightened emotion.

Her work with the college age population focuses on helping students work through the developmental challenges of leaving home. First as a college counselor at Sarah Lawrence College, she sees students in the NYC area in her private practice. In addition to students, she is particularly interested in working with patients as they transition through new life stages, such as entering adulthood, divorce or separation issues, or patients facing illness and death.

Her publications in professional journals on clinical topics include mourning and grief and working with the isolated patient. These articles can be accessed on her website. www.lauraimpert.com
