Hi, I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Louisiana with over 18 years of experience. I have a particular interest and expertise in working with those touched by foster care and/or adoption. For the majority of my career, I have worked with children and teenagers. I enjoy working with these age groups and assisting them with navigating the often complex emotions that accompany adolescence. Also, I have worked extensively with families and couples. Many of these clients were in need of assistance with strengthening and improving their relationships, improving their communication, and managing the various stressors in their lives.
I strive to provide a warm, caring and supportive environment where my clients can work through obstacles, struggles and past traumas to reach a successful solution. I partner with each individual to help them achieve the life they desire. I work with each individual to identify and build upon their unique strengths and to find more positive and productive ways of communicating and problem solving.
Sometimes making the first step can be the most difficult one once an individual has decided to seek counseling. I am committed to providing a welcoming and compassionate setting so my client and I can develop a healthy and effective therapeutic relationship. I'm here to help.

I really appreciate Lori’s sincere concern. It’s been helpful to have someone give me kind and objective input which is exactly what I needed. Thank you Lori!
I've only had a couple sessions with Lori so far, but I am enjoying each session. She listens carefully and has great suggestions when helping with some of my current struggles. She's calm and kind, I'd recommend her to others for sure!
Lori is just wonderful. She speaks to your soul with her very gentle voice and calm delivery of her expert opinion. In our first session, she really took time to draw out from me by asking appropriate questions and then, based her opinion in identifying what I’m going through. She would also constantly check on me and send me worksheets and reminders that would help.
She is very understanding and gives me advise on how to handle a situation. She has made me believe in myself again.
Lori is a very caring and understanding person. I have always felt welcomed and safe sharing with her and I appreciate her insights. I highly recommend her as a therapist especially if you’re on the fence on whether to seek help or not! She is wonderful and will help you with everything.
I have had two sessions with Lori so far and she has been very helpful in giving me insight and validating some of my feelings and concerns that I was unsure of. I am grateful for her help!
Lori has been very helpful. She is very kind and positive and has made me feel comfortable since the beginning.
Lori is such a personable and kind hearted person. She genuinely wants to help and really puts herself in your shoes before giving advice or any suggestions. I love that she is very flexible with timings as well and gives you the time to open up. I instantly felt very comfortable with Lori and her expertise and would highly recommend her!
I really appreciated that our first conversation ended with actual tasks for me to focus on over the week. My therapy sessions in the past often just left me feeling drained and overwhelmed from sharing all of my concerns without having something to work on or a way to focus my energy.
