About Me

Hello! My name is Dr. Lori Malkasian. I have a Psy.D. in counseling and have been helping others for the past 20 years! Life sometimes hands us situations that are just too difficult to deal with on our own. The good news is that you don't have to! Together we can discuss the issues that you are struggling with to find more effective strategies to manage these difficulties. I specialize in work with adolescents and treat a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, and anger problems. Sometimes it just takes an outside perspective to help you gain a better understanding of what is going on in your life. I'm happy to help you work through these difficulties.
I specialize in work with adolescents and adults. There are so many issues that teens face; growing up is so difficult especially with all the technology that kids can access! I can help your child navigate through these challenging times.

I help teens and adults deal with a variety of issues such as social skills, school problems, anger management, depression, anxiety, and family issues. Parenting is the most difficult job in the world but you don't have to do it alone. Together we can get your family on track!

Just when I was ready to believe that I was broken and not 'suitable' for counselling after many failed attempts. Dr Malkasian appeared on the day I was ready to give up and has changed the view I view my life already in 4 weeks. I have a long way to go and Dr Malkasian makes me put the work and thought in and is always honest. If like me , you feel like no one understands you, please give her a try! I am a 27 year old black woman from London but Dr Malkasian understands deeply.

I have been in contact with Dr Malkasian for a few weeks now and she has definitely put things into perspective for me to understand my feelings and thoughts. I look forward to continue working with her on my issues and I can highly recommend her.

She’s amazing! Dr. Malkasian has helped me through a really rough time with my separation from my fiancé. She was understanding and helped me view things from a logical perspective. She’s funny as well, I felt comfortable with telling her my situation. You won’t regret having her as your therapist!

Work with me!
