Under Clinical Supervision

Laura Newberry, Associate Clinical Social Worker, ASW118779 is practicing under the supervision of Jasyn Lezin (California, LCSW, 101360) at Expansive Therapy.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I feel strongly that boxes and assumptions have no place in the therapy room. I’m dedicated to creating a space where all aspects of your identity will be recognized and can be safely explored. Therapy isn’t one-size-fits all, and our work together will be shaped by our unique chemistry and what you bring to the table. Though therapy can be challenging, it can also be creative, warm, and full of humor. We’ll move at a pace that feels right to you.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

The most meaningful part of this work for me is helping people connect to the parts of themselves they're most afraid or ashamed of, and supporting clients in lovingly tending to those parts. I think that this is especially important for queer, trans and other marginalized folks, who often have the experience of being told (both implicitly and explicitly) that there is something wrong with them.

What excites you most about the evolving mental health landscape?

I'm most excited about the growing recognition of the role of the body in trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship patterns and so many other issues. The mental health field is also increasingly acknowledging the ways that our well-being is shaped by our identities and environments, including systems and structures of oppression.

Work History

I spent much of my adult life as a journalist, interviewing people in their best and worst moments. Through this work I learned that everyone has a fascinating, complex, and even contradictory life narrative, and on some level we're all just looking to be understood. This wisdom has transferred beautifully into my work as a therapist, because so much of this work is about witnessing and holding the messiness of what it means to be human. I honed these skills during my training at the People Concern, providing clinical services to people experiencing homelessness in L.A., and at the Los Angeles LGBT Center, where I provided therapy for queer and transgender people from ages 22 to 65.
