About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Wisconsin with over 10 years of experience working with dual diagnosis clients (AODA and Mental Health Disorders). I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and anger management. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse.

I am a strength-based counselor who can help you identify your personal positive qualities to focus on building a life worth living. I believe in treating everyone with respect and dignity. I embody an approach that emphasizes compassion and self-care, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines CBT/DBT, trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I look forward to working with you!

Lori is very understanding and very good at distracting me when I get upset. At least two or three times a week she messages me worksheets videos and other things to look into

She's so nice and really remembers or tries to all the details I tell her. Even if she has to write them down to remember I do appreciate it

Caring, compassionate and insightful. Lori provides guidance and on point tools to aide in self care and is expansive in many options of walking through a mental health crisis.

Written by S.H. on Dec 11, 2021 after therapy with Lori for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, and family conflicts

In the few weeks I’ve been working with Lori, she has helped me move toward more self care and better treatment of others. Before therapy, I was experiencing a lot of dark thoughts, experiencing a lot of rage, becoming depressed, and struggling to regulate my emotions. I was thinking about hurting myself, burying myself in work, isolating from friends and family, and yelling at my kids all the time. Our weekly sessions coupled with tiny bits of daily intentions have made tremendous improvements in how I see myself and others.

Work with me!
