About Me

Hi. My name is Lori Gieseler. I am a MSW, LCSW and am licensed in the state of Louisiana. I graduated from LSU-Baton Rouge and have enjoyed a wide range of experiences with a concentration of working with adolescents, adults and couples. I believe in meeting individuals where they are and helping them learn to cherish themselves and their ilfe experiences. Don't you think it's time to start walking up the road to self-care? I have experience is working with mood disorders, working with spouses of sex addicts and working with individuals who are adjusting to curves life may throw at them. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which helps individuals develop a way of thinking to alter behavior and their reactions to events in life.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I approach counseling through a client-centered approach. I believe in using reflective questions to guide sessions and initiate change. I treat anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe we all deserve to live the best life possible. and will tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Are you ready to take that first step? Are you ready to learn how to respond differently to obtain better outcomes in life? You deserve it!

Lori is an amazing therapist. She is helpful, kind, and authentic. We set up goals and she guides me to do the work to meet them. She will tell me what I need to hear and not just what I may want to hear. There is a significant difference in my life since I began working with her. Great experience.
