About  Donna Laikind

I have 30 years of experience working in a private practice working with couples and families going through different phases and problems in their lives. Along with helping couples and families, I also help individuals and their unique and personalized needs. 

Whether you are looking for marriage counseling, premarital counseling, family therapy, or individual counseling, I am here to help you talk through your feelings, identify your strengths, realize your potential, and sort your thoughts along with formulating useful strategies. Everyone is unique and I develop a plan tailored to your needs. My approach is interactive, empathetic, respectful, and objective.

My goal in marriage therapy is to help you see what is, discover why, explore healthier options, and tell a better story of who you are. Couples therapy and family therapy can be useful to address the issues below: 

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Life cycle changes (birth, death, divorce, and job loss)
  • Forming healthy relationships 
  • Improving communication skills
  • Renegotiating money and power
  • Living with illness or addiction
  • Surviving infidelity
  • Parent-child relationships
  • Separation and divorce
  • Fear of intimacy
  • Feeling stuck and alone  

In addition to working in a private practice, I am also a faculty member at New York University Medical School in the Department of Psychiatry.  I am Chairman on the Board of Directors for Ackerman Institute for the Family for 4 years. Additionally I was past Chairman of the Board of Family Dynamics, a Family Welfare Agency for 5 years. 

Call or email me today so we can begin a plan for your needs. I look forward to hearing from you very soon.
