I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, in NJ and CA. Bilingual in English/Spanish. I started my clinical practice as a Clinical Psychologist in Argentina in 1995.
During more than 25 years of clinical practice, I have acquired extensive experience working with individuals with anxiety, depression, psychosis, trauma, PTSD, and immigration issues.
I have completed advanced training at The Immigration Evaluation Institute and the Immigration Evaluation Training Center.
I am a trained EMDR and EFT trauma therapist. I am Certified Clinical Trauma Professional.
As a bilingual immigrant myself, I can relate to the difficulties that arise from cultural transitions. My immigration journey made me develop a great deal of experience, all of which have been uniquely valuable and contributed to my intellectual maturity and personal growth.
I work collaboratively with attorneys to provide a thorough and accurate report for your immigration case.


I have an extensive experience in trauma. I am kind and compassionate.

Hi, I am Dr. Laura Preciado. I am a bilingual and bicultural licensed psychologist. I specialize in multicultural psychology and immigration evaluations. I work primarily with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), LGBTQ+, and bilingual Spanish speakers. I have experience working with unaccompanied youth in foster care and children in the custody of ORR. I have worked with attorneys and attended court as a support person for my clients. I have a doctorate in counseling psychology and a master’s degree in school counseling, thus, I have extensive experience working with clients with a history of trauma and abuse.


I have a decade of experience working with marginalized individuals who have experienced various traumas and I am now utilizing this experience to serve those who are seeking asylum. As a child of immigrants who had fled various traumas, I also have lived experience with family members who have gone through these experiences.
I am bicultural/bilingual in Arabic/English and specialize in working with people of color, ethnic/religious minorities, and the LGBTQ community.

I have completed the University of Chicago's training Documenting Persecution/Asylum Evaluations.
