Corinne Laird

Corinne Laird, LCSW, operates a full-time private practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. She works with individuals and couples, focusing on mood disorders, substance abuse, and trauma.

Early in her career, Ms. Laird worked at a clinic in downtown Brooklyn, providing substance abuse counseling to young men on federal probation with a focus on reducing recidivism. She later transferred to Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, where she provided group and individual therapy with a MICA population. During this time, she developed and implemented art therapy and mindfulness meditation groups. She also engaged in research and training studies in motivational interviewing and CURB (Cocaine Use Reduction with Buprenorphine), with the goal of integrating agonist and talk therapies. While employed at Montefiore, she also completed SIFI training and supervised social work interns from Yeshiva University.

In 2016, Ms. Laird completed a two-year certificate program in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy. She holds a BA in English and Creative Writing from James Madison University, and an MSW from the Columbia School of Social Work.
