Professional Background

Dr. Laura Bonomo, is a cognitive behavior therapist specializing in the treatment of anxiety disorders in children and adults. She is the clinical director and owner of Abridged Psychology, PLLC, located in Garden City, NY.

Laura believes that there is a difference between feeling better and thinking better. She uses evidence based treatments to help clients reduce/eliminate anxious thoughts and behaviors and provides them with a skill set to develop healthier thinking styles. Those healthier thinking styles facilitate clients in taking steps towards, and ultimately achieving, their personal goals. Tracking client progress, psychoeducation and, (for children), training parents as behavioral coaches, are all part of her standard procedure.

For 20 plus years, Laura balanced her solo private practice with a full-time school psychologist position. In 2014 she founded Abridged Psychology, a group practice specializing in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Clinicians at Abridged Psychology have niches ranging from treating children with separation issues, to helping young adults transition from school to the workforce. The group frequently services people struggling with social anxiety, fertility issues, relationship break-ups, imposter syndrome and stress associated with leadership and entrepreneur positions. In 2020 Abridged Psychology added New York/New Jersey telehealth services. The group is poised to open a Central/Northern New Jersey office in early 2021.
