Real Insight. Undeniable Results.

Laura Dabney, MD has made a career of taking on psychiatry’s toughest challenges—from treating complex, combined medical and psychological conditions, to ensuring the absolute privacy of powerful, high-profile patients. Dr. Dabney has, for decades, helped her patients change their lives for the better. And they recognize her for it. Dr. Dabney’s patients come for many reasons: depression and anxiety, recent break-ups or a lifetime of toxic relationships. Yet, despite the problems that brought them through her door, they describe her in the same terms again and again, calling her warm, knowledgeable, and committed to their success.

The decision to seek therapy is never easy and there are an infinite number of excuses to be made for avoiding it. But here’s what many people don’t realize: the people who live the happiest, most fulfilling lives are the people who recognize they can’t do everything on their own, no matter how smart, or driven, or resourceful they are. In fact, most of Dr. Dabney’s patients are already successful by many measures—they are people who have established impressive careers, lived well, and achieved important life goals. So, why do they need help? Because no one has the skills necessary to answer every question, tackle every challenge, overcome every fear, without the help of a skilled and committed guide. Dr. Laura Dabney has been that guide for hundreds of individuals.
