Laura Kasper, PhD

I am psychologist and have been practicing psychotherapy for over 15 years. I have experience working with a diverse group of clients with respect to presenting concerns, gender, sexual orientation, and race/ethnicity.

I have particular research and clinical expertise in authenticity with one’s self and in relationships, interpersonal communication, and issues of sexual orientation, gender, and sexuality. My services include individual, couples, and group psychotherapy. I also do video counseling sessions with individuals and couples in CA, DC and VA, the states where I am licensed.

I earned my master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Maryland’s Counseling Psychology program. I completed my internship and post-doctoral training, and was a Staff Psychologist at the The George Washington University Counseling Center for several years before starting my private practice. I have been an Adjunct Faculty member at both the University of Maryland and The George Washington University, and am currently Assistant Clinical Faculty at the University of California San Francisco.
