Laura D Bykofsky, LCSW-R, ACSW, SAP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Saratoga Springs
For over 27years,I have been providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents,adults and families. I recognize that knowing you need help is not the same as knowing what kind of help you need.My role is to facilitate that process with you;to provide the guidance,support and collaboration that will enable us to identify how you can most effectively reach your personal goals and improve your quality of life.As we move through that process, you can rely on me to be honest, forthright and compassionate; to work with you, side by side,as you face the challenges ahead.
As a generalist,my experience is broad and comprehensive.My areas of clinical specialty include but are not limited to, depression,anxiety,OCD,addiction and trauma. I am skilled in working with children,adolescents and families.I use a variety of approaches, and find cognitive behavioral therapy to be extremely effective.
I utilize a team approach and collaborate regularly with schools,physicians and community service agencies to achieve optimal outcomes.I am an advocate of the family systems approach, especially when working with children and adolescents.I offer flexible scheduling and participate with most major insurance carriers and employee assistance programs.
