Hello, and welcome to my profile. Read on to learn about my qualifications, credentials, experience, and approach to therapy to help you with the process of choosing a professional therapist.
My name is Lois Lambert. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. I attended graduate school and earned my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University, located in beautiful, sunny, Malibu, California. A full-time student, I also worked 48-hours a week as a residential counselor, completed an internship, and managed graduate teaching assistantship responsibilities, all on a limited income, and absent family support. During that time, my automobile was stolen twice and I was shaken by an earthquake. While I have encountered many more and greater adversities since that time, I share those few to convey that I have considerable experience effectively handling intense pressure and stress, and it is my position that with sufficient motivation, perseverance, and endurance, obstacles can be overcome and dreams achieved!
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Alabama with 20+ years of experience providing individual, family, and group therapy services to children, adolescents, and adults. I also hold national certification as a Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. Knowledgeable and proficient in treating a wide range of problems, I am known for my expertise in trauma treatment, child and adolescent disorders, mood, and anxiety disorders across the lifespan. I have worked with individuals and families who have endured traumatic experiences, ranging from automobile accidents, sudden violent deaths, shootings, and dog bites to rape and childhood abuse, and all have reported significant improvements.
Over the past 2 years, I have had the great privilege and delight to provide Virtual Therapy to people from 23 countries around the globe! I am so impressed by the courage of those who reach out, Daring Greatly as they allow their vulnerability to show. And even more so, I am thrilled to see the resulting growth, strength, and happiness that they take into their future!
As a person who also has a great interest in brain science, I have spent considerable time and research learning how to optimize its function over the course of a lifetime, and I integrate this knowledge into therapeutic interventions to greatly enhance effectiveness.
It is important to realize that good and effective therapy requires compassion for humanity, science, art, and skill, and this emerges as a therapist progressively understands the complexity of the human mind and condition which is the result of biology, heredity, learning, social environment, and millions of interactions amongst all of these things over the course of a lifetime.
My therapeutic approach is informed by science, art, knowledge, and experience.
I strive to help people define and realize their dreams, to see obstacles as opportunities for creating a great life story, and to encourage growth, learning, and prosperity.

I came on this site while on a deployment because life and its stressors were becoming such a challenge to deal with. I started with one therapist and ended up switching to Lois. She has been such a wonderful help and taught me how to change the way to look at situations and process the things I cannot change. She helped me overcome my tendency to overthink/over analyze and gave me the tools I will use for a lifetime. Her kindness and listening abilities are unmatched! I cannot recommend her enough!
