A Genuinely, Caring & Committed Psychiatrist

Laura Dabney, MD has made a career of taking on psychiatry’s toughest challenges from treating complex, combined medical and psychological conditions, to ensure 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, including, but not limited to:

  • Depression & anxiety
  • Recent break-ups
  • A lifetime of toxic relationships
  • Marriage & relationship guidance

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 is 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. As a relationship therapist, she has been guiding hundreds of individuals to greater happiness and more fulfilling lives.

Even the most highly successful individuals face challenges in career growth, business growth, and relationships.

Trust me- we all do.

And it’s also true that those challenges are designed to grow us – make us better, make us more successful. At the core of our potential, lies our emotions, which significantly affect our behaviors and influence our relationships for better– or sadly worse.

As a psychiatrist and relationship therapist, I help you discover your unconsciousness- the pre-existing conditions that we have self-handicapped ourselves in success and relationships, as both usually go hand-in-hand.

And I’m about to guide you on how to awaken the tools within you to better both through:

  • Self-discovery
  • Empowerment
  • Achievement
  • Happiness in relationships

If you’re interested in learning more about YOU and how you can author your own success in life and relationships, I’m here to tell you, I’ve helped hundreds of professionals create long-lasting, healthy relationships that have enabled them to become even more successful- even ultra successful.

Your long-term happiness is in your relationships. Not your home, or your car.

I’ve seen countless, highly successful men and women, with all the financial glory unable to achieve happiness due to the handcuffs we place on ourselves. I’m here to give you the keys to unshackle those restraints and the tools to help remove your self-imposed limits, and un-riddle the relationship puzzle…
