About Me

Hello! I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Texas with over 9 years of experience working as a mental health professional. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, compassion fatigue, grief of the loss of a pet, abandonment issues, attachment issues, self-harm, young adult issues, social anxiety, communication issues, LGBTQ issues, gender quest issues and sensory processing disorders. I also helped many people who have experienced physical, sexual and emotional trauma. I have managed local crises and provided ongoing support for clients struggling with PTSD.

I have worked in various settings, including inpatient psychiatric care, long-term residential care, outpatient, in-home care, and community support programs.
I offer a counseling style that is non-judgmental, empathetic, respectful, warm, and humorous. I am driven by the need to meet my clients where they are. I strive for my therapy approach to be humanistic. My broad theoretical and therapeutic approaches are based on individual needs. They include, but not limited to, dialectical behavior therapy, narrative therapy, solution-focused, mindfulness-based therapy, person-centered, trauma-focused, motivational interviewing. We will work together to design a treatment plan to meet your individual and specific needs.

Taking the first step toward improving our mental health and quality of life requires a great deal of strength and determination. If you are ready to move forward in your future, I am here to support, encourage and empower you.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Lora had been incredible in my journey to self-betterment, and I am grateful that I met her.

I have been having a few tough weeks recently, and she always knows how to listen and be there for me, on top of being a great counselor. She also
spends a lot of time with me, exceeding the usual session time with no hesitation at all.

I just finished a really self-enriching and therapeutic session with her, and was able to release so many deep emotions in a safe and secure mental and emotional space with her.

I would definitely love to continue my journey of mental and emotional health with her. Thank you so much, Lora.
