Laurel Healy

Clinical Social Work-Therapist

Most people enter therapy looking for hope about the future, a sense of being more in control of their lives and to feel more connected with those they care about. In my extensive work in the area of communication, I've seen that most people distort interactions by making assumptions, taking things personally and believing that how they feel is what is real. Correcting these distortions is the first step in improving any relationship and being happier. It allows one to use the skills that I teach.

Whether someone is unhappy with a relationship, has a chronic illness or just believes that their life could be better, they usually have feelings of of sadness and loss. I provide a safe place for someone to talk freely about what is missing and how to be more fulfilled.

After earning my masters degree, I worked for 2 years in community mental health. From there, I spent a year in a psychiatric fellowship at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital. I moved to Sarasota in 1983 where I've had a private practice and provided services at several local organizations
