I am a New York State licensed PhD Psychologist with more than 25 years’ experience in the public and private sectors. My doctorate in Psychology is from Fordham University and I have a post-doctoral degree in Speech and Language Pathology from Columbia University .
I specialize in working with a diverse population of adults with mild reading or language-based difficulties and those with severe learning disorders. Often self esteem and anxiety in applying for jobs or maintaining employment can go hand in hand. My practice incorporates collaborating with the clients to turn key ideas.
I also have expertise in guiding young adult students who will be immigrating to the US and/or spending time abroad and the stressors involved in this. I am very knowledgeable on relaxation techniques as well as mindfulness. I can help you to incorporate strategies to reduce anxiety and get to the tasks that need to be accomplished!
I enjoy helping individuals find motivation within themselves to push their career choices forward and be successful. Building of time management and executive functioning skills is a key component for success in school and on the job. My goal is to work together with the clients to identify the steps needed to build these areas in order to reach one's school and work goals.
I am a person centered psychologist with a warm and compassionate style. Together we will work to navigate the process.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Laura Kaplan-Naim. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Dr. Kaplan listens and grounds her practice in client focused approach
Dr. Kaplan-Naim is very helpful and listens to what I say. She contacts me when I need it most (because I am very forgetful) and she treats me with respect and I really appreciate everything she does.
Laura is so kind and understanding. She is always available to respond to me whenever I need her. She's helped me so much already.
I know dr Laura understands me and lets me feel very comfortable
The most wonderful! Thank you!!
Laura is amazing!
Dr. Kaplain-Naim is very supportive and understanding. Great for soothing if you're going through a rough time.
Laura is patient and thoughtful. She's great conversation, as well as offers solid insight and perspective. Her support was essential to my handling big life changes. Highly recommend!
Laura is such an amazing person and expert. This is the first time, I'm going to a therapist and I'm absolutely delighted with the sessions! She is very professional and she provides me with tips and solutions that I can directly put into practice! After each session, I feel empowered and confident and I know exactly what to implement. She is super supportive and I'm very happy to have met her through BetterHelp.
I highly recommend her, she is awesome!
I spent the past month speaking with Dr Kaplan and she was really kind and encouraging from the start. It was easy to talk to her and she offered a great listening ear, always encouraging me to share more if I’m comfortable. I’m better equipped to face the challenges in life now after the sessions!
-being a nurse, and working until nearly 1am with an aggressive staff member, it is perfect to be able to set up an appt at 1am or 2am to process, receive supportive feedback, and learn resources/techniques to utilize next shift. My co-worker is pretty overbearing, I have stomachs issues around her, and she has administration in her back pocket. I felt like I had no power. But now the power is in how I respond to her. Even if it doesn’t work right away, just having someone to be on your side, and in the wee hours of the am, makes all the difference in the world.
I have only had one session with Dr. Kaplan-Naim, but she was very nice and understanding, I will continue seeing her.
Dr. Laura Kaplan-Naim is thoughtful, eloquent and generous. She is highly professional, intelligent, extremely supportive and confidence boosting. I feel that being in communication with her could help anyone enhance their life's purpose and happiness level.
Laura held a very safe and supportive space with a mix of active listing and proactive tactical support. Her direct approach and soft way of being is just what I needed. Her business input also helped me a lot. I recommend Laura to anyone looking for a soft and yet firm space to help you get unstuck and much more …
She is amazing! I wish everyone I know could have the chance to get to know her.
Dr. Kaplan-Naim is very attentive and checks in when she hasn’t heard from me in a little bit. She’s a great support.
Dr. Kaplan-Naim is a wonderful therapist who already feels like a friend. She’s an amazing listener and responds with the precise words I didn’t know I needed to hear till they hit my ear. I feel like she genuinely cares to hear what I have to say and is so thoughtful and real in her reactions. I’m in the most challenging time of my life and her presence and support has made a huge difference in the way I feel about it.
Dr. Kaplan is one of the most respected and confident therapists that I have had the time of meeting she takes her time to fully soak in the problems or what would be good and indecisive giving a great source of feedback great homework to boost my confidence and maintaining my anxiety with her scheduled visits. I always look forward to having her scheduled visits and having her listen to my thoughts and concerns during our sessions
Dr. Kaplan Naim is a very supportive person - she offers a very useful guidance and is always available when I need a listening ear. She always sees the best in a person and helps me to find hope in the darkness.
Laura has been the best therapist I’ve ever had. She makes me feel very comfortable and at ease. It’s the first time I can say, “I really like my therapist,” and I’m very grateful for that.
She's very understanding. I feel comfortable speaking with her and trust that she hears me.
Kind and helpful. She does not judge in any way. She knows she is there to help and actually listens to you.
