Laura Ucci

Laura Ucci, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, specializes in helping people with anxiety, stress, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, LGBTQIA issues, and more. Ucci understands well that the uncertainty in life can bring on a number of mental health problems, many of which we just listed.

“Whether life has presented you with a significant loss, an unexpected lifestyle change, or you want to heal from the effects of trauma, I want to be there to help you achieve a healthier and happier life,” says Ucci.



Time and time again, the clients at Thriveworks Counseling find that in addition to the problems they identified prior to counseling, they are able to work through concerns or challenges they didn’t even realize they had. Heidi Faust, Chief Compliance Officer at Thriveworks, explains:

“Many of our clients start counseling with a specific problem or goal in mind only to find that through their relationship with a skilled Thriveworks counselor, they are able to resolve their initial concern relatively quickly and then are really able to focus on getting to the root of what caused that issue to begin with. Due to their newly found feelings of success and mastery, many of these clients then become motivated to start working on areas of their lives that they hadn’t even consider prior to starting treatment.”

Thriveworks Worcester is located at 405 Grove St., Worcester, MA 01605. Right now, clients can meet with a provider via telephone or video. The team hopes to welcome clients to their physical office soon. To schedule an online counseling session, clients can use the online booking system or call the office at (508) 409-6134 for assistance from a scheduling specialist.
