Southampton, NY – Laraine Gordon is a psychotherapist, wellness coach and Founder of Love Your Life Coastal and Time for Teens, Inc., where she combines cognitive behavioral therapy with action-oriented experiential methods for success.
“I'm not a traditional therapist, I focus on accountability of the individual and we look at their entire lifestyle,” says Laraine. “I ask people how they're sleeping, what they're eating, what it is that they want to change and at what lengths are they willing to get the results.”
“The idea is for you to do something for yourself that allows the ego to take a backseat,” says Laraine. “I'm always trying to encourage people to really think about their creative expression and what that looks like to them. That's why I do experiential therapy, because talking about what's going on only gets us halfway there. We need to shift ingrained behaviors and perceptions, thereby allowing the individual to experience true change and success.”
Laraine’s targeted population are teenagers and young adults. In addition to her private practice, she works with teens through her 501c3 charity organization, Time For Teens. Laraine Founded TFT in 2007, the program addresses the mental, emotional and developmental needs of teenagers who have experienced the death of a loved one. The mission of TFT is to create resiliency in teenagers following the death of a loved one. Laraine creates this setting with the methods that inform her practice.
