" I am a non-judgmental, open-minded therapist who believes that each client is an individual who deserves respect and unconditional regard for their life experiences. I engage in utilization of client centered therapy that allows the client to direct and feel more involved in the therapeutic process. This allows me to connect with the client and, together, develop a treatment plan that will help them to foster the skills that they feel they need to achieve the goals that they have set forth."
"I have worked, successfully, with individuals who are dealing with trauma and the anxiety that so often accompanies such trauma. I have found that utilizing CBT techniques such as journaling and challenging cognitive distortions, clients are better able to address the negative thought patterns that cause a perceptual bias that can be debilitating."

Lorey has helped me to connect my values and morals with the way I live my life daily. This skill is helping me to be my truest self - someone I can believe in, count on and feel confident about. This is something I am extremely thankful for.
I appreciate Lorey’s help! She is always quick to communicate and giving pointers toward the bigger questions . This whole wing there to support the progress. Thank you!
Lorey has been an absolute blessing to my life and I hope to continue my relationship with her as a regular therapist, she is kind, she listens well, she offers great advice, and she has led me to quite a few epiphanies over the last few months. I appreciate her counseling style and her open mind and understanding.
Lorey is great and she is understanding and shows me different ways to deal with my issues that are very helpful.
Lorey has helped me so much. She listens so well, makes me feel heard. And walks me through things that I can do to help cope.
Although I didn’t have many sessions with Mrs. Simmons I didn’t think she was the right therapist for me. I don’t think she truly understood my struggles, and the many techniques we tried seemed very unhelpful.
I am just meeting Lorey, but I am enjoying my conversations with her. She is gentle enough to not scare away this Libra but pointed enough to help guide. Lorey is the type of voice I need to hear from.
Awesome to work with.. keeps up with my brain and highly appreciate the advice and conversations!
I tried therapy for the first time a little over a year ago and just felt like I wasn’t connecting fully with my therapist. I thought maybe I needed to give it more time, but even after a break through moment, it just wasn’t there. I felt discouraged and stopped because I was nervous to start all over again. I’ve only had two sessions so far with Lorey and I’m so glad I switched! I like that BetterHelp matches you with someone. I can tell Lorey has more experience in what I needed and look forward to working with her to get back on track.
Lorey gives me the feeling that she really cares. I like being able to write long posts to think things through and know that she will read them and give me her expertise in response. It really has helped me see progress in my life.
Lorey is very kind and concerned with me and what is going on. I like and appreciate her.
I am very new to therapy, but I already feel that I can see progress from my work with Lorey. I can tell she is doing her best to guide my thoughts in the right direction, and I am optimistic about where this journey will go.
Lorey has been very helpful in guiding me to understand and see my feelings and prioritize what is more important to me. I feel better every time I talk to her.
At this point I have confidence in her.
Lorey is wonderful and is very knowledgeable. Very helpful in developing different tools to help deal with everyday problems. Points out many things I never see.
Lorey is a very empathetic person. She is good at seeing the larger picture of what is happening and gently walks you through the pragmatic and useful things to note about what you are going through. She quickly validated what I was feeling, and then gave me the tools that have helped me to feel calmer and begin to heal.
Lorey has always responded quickly and with practical ways to address whatever issue I'm dealing with. I highly recommend working with her.
A very responsive and respectful therapist that is very engaging.
She listens to me without judgement and offers advice that I always find helpful.
I think Lorey is listening to me and doing her best to help me. It’s nice to be able to talk when it’s convenient.
Lorey is very kind, person centered and empathetic. It has been a pleasure working with her. I really feel heard and understood and she allows me to steer the session as I need with what is going on in my life.
Lorey noticed there are several areas that I need assistance in but focused in more on the most present pertinent areas that need addressed now. She is wonderful
Lorey's feedback is always thoughtful and helpful. I'm so glad I gave BetterHelp a try. I can fit counseling with Lorey into my schedule and that makes a huge difference.
Lorey seems to always be there quickly after she received correspondence from me. I can ask her questions, and she does answer them. I feel she truly is accepting me for who I really am. I really feel grateful that I started talking to her and not have to make weekly appointments, and drive to and from, and I can dump all my stuff on her. She give me positive feed back, and I thank her and respect her. Thanks BetterHelp.
