More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 27

I am seeing women ages 21 and older, primarily dealing with life’s adjustments, transitions, anxiety, and those wanting relationship, parenting guidance.

I do not see men or couples, EAP, substance abuse, depression, psychosis, or any further serious issues.

I see clients as a hammock that has four bars holding them up: Body, Mind, Emotions, and Spirit. We each have weights that we put in our hammocks, both positive and negative stressors. I try to strengthen each pole so that my clients can handle the weight in their “hammocks”.

Body: Breathing, to slower heart rate, exercise to lessen cortisol and create endorphins, sleep that regulates mood and focus. Physical history, medications, etc.

Mind: Identifying the irrational thoughts that we all have, that contribute to stressors. Biblio therapies, communication skills, career development.

Emotions: Process how to express emotions, how they affect thinking, feeling, and perceiving. Need for positive peer group, and community.

Spirit: Opportunity to explore spiritual growth, especially when your body, mind, and emotions are worn out!

I have been counseling a licensed counselor since 1997, and actively counseling for the past 27 yrs!!!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Overall

this was my first time doing any sort of therapy. i had requested for prayer and scripture to be incorporated into our sessions and she provided so many great biblical and psychological resources that i will continue to use well regularly - tangible resources and daily practices to incorporate into my life to help strengthen all areas of my well-being - mind, body, heart, spirit. i’m so grateful. - also, even tho my subscription is cancelled, it still shows i’m active according to lori, but I CANT RESPOND TO HER because my subscription is actually cancelled and there is a loop of 2 pop-ups asking why i am not continuing the subscription and whether i want financial aid and back and forth.

Lori is really great at helping me question my thoughts which is something I didn’t think of doing. She’s really great at listening!

Such a brilliant and caring person. I feel challenged as I grow already feeling connection to open up and have a safe space as well. What a gift she is.

Lori is great at helping me to reflect & collect my scattered thoughts, and bring clarity to the confusion. Her expertise and training comes through when she shares perspective and feedback. I’ve only had the opportunity to work with Lori for a couple of weeks, but it has added a great value to my mental health. I appreciate her patience and professionalism.

After only a couple of weeks, I feel my sessions with Lori are helping immensely. She provides honest feedback and ask questions that cause me to think about my emotions, thoughts and feelings.
