She is an incredible woman. she's very knowledgeable, respectful and all around great. I have at least 30 years of counseling and she is by far the best one I've ever had. I am so blessed to have been paired with her and know a lot of people would benefit from her experience, openness and intuitiveness.

I have been searching for years for a therapist that was a good fit. After my psychiatrist retired, I had multiple failed attempts, so it was such a relief to finally find Lora. Our first meeting went over time, but she didn't cut me off. I felt valued and understood right away. She came into our second meeting with information that was spot on with me, so I was impressed that she gathered so much about me after such a short time. I am so encouraged that I have found the therapist for me and look forward to moving forward with Lora.
