My name is Lorene Floyd and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Alabama. I received by Masters in Counseling and Human Development from Troy University, Montgomery and my BS degree in Psychology from the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. I have been working in the mental health field (primarily the Veteran Affairs Health Care System) for 30 years and am currently retired so that I can have more time with my grandkids. My bulk of my experiences include working with individuals with substance abuse problems and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This has equipped me to also be able to relate and treat issues such as anger, anxiety, marital, and stress along with a number of other mental health disorders. I have also recently completed certification to be a Life Purpose Life Coach with the hope that I can help you discover your purpose and develop your passion.
I'm relatively easy going and open-minded but believe in being direct and honest. Although I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy, I believe most times that just allowing you to talk about your problems goes a long way towards finding a solution and healing. I'm a very spiritual person of faith and enjoy singing, dancing (only for fun) and walking.
I am excited to be a part of a helping team!

Lorene is professional and positive. She is a good listener and remains engaged.
She had good ideas for me to overcome racing thought patterns. I would recommend Lorene.

Lorene Floyd came into my life when I was at my lowest point. She was just what I needed. She listens to me and gives sound counsel. Her genuineness and calmness has guided me through the worst point of my life. I am beginning to come “back to life”. I can’t even begin to express what she has done for me. My thought patterns have changed and my confidence has grown all because of my talks with Lorene. If your looking for someone genuine. Look no further. Lorene is your person!!
