Laura Impert

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW-R

Laura Impert, LCSW-R 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. Initially trained as a psychoanalyst, she believes some patients especially benefit from finding tools to regulate states of distress and heightened emotional arousal. Most valuable are the lifelong capacities to be curious and to self-reflect.

In the course of her practice, Laura has worked with patients around LGBTQ issues including work in the kink and poly community. 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
