Lauren Canonico, LCSW

Body, Sex and LGBTQ+ Affirmative Psychotherapy 

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist in private practice in Manhattan. With me, you won’t find a stereotypical blank faced analyst, but instead a warm, responsive presence and an interactive, deeply collaborative approach to therapy.

Whether our work entails better understanding how your past informs your present or examining here and now moments you’d like to deepen or improve upon, I’m here to help. Primarily trained in relational psychoanalytic psychotherapy and trauma treatment, I offer special insights to those with relationship problems, LGBTQ+/GSM issues and those experiencing discomfort and disconnection with their bodies, whether based in trauma, chronic pain or illness, gender dysphoria, chronic dieting or disordered eating.

As your therapist, I’ll focus on developing a strong partnership with you, and in doing so will help you better understand yourself and your relationships.  

In addition to my private practice, I also offer clinical supervision to other therapists, consult with organizations, providing training and clinical supervision, and teach at Fordham University’s Graduate School of Social Service.
