I have been a licensed clinical social worker for 35 years. I have experience providing individual , group, and family counseling to teens, adults and families. I have background in the areas of anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger management and foster care and adoption. I truly enjoy working with people and my goal is to assist my clients in managing a variety of concerns . It is important to me to establish a safe, non-judgmental environment, and to show respect to all my clients.
I don't have one approach I utilize, as I feel everyone is an individual and it is important to develop a plan once I have your input and together we decide on the direction your counseling will take. I recognize that for some, deciding to attend counseling can be a challenge. I am here to provide the support, flexibility and trust you need to succeed.
Once you choose to begin counseling to address the concerns you have, I will be there to assist and support you in the process.

I have made some significant improvements and discoveries since speaking with Lori. She is a pleasure to talk to and is never judgmental. I'm lucky to have been matched up with her.

Lori not only listens to me, but hears me. She acknowledges how I'm feeling and works with me on the best ways to approach challenges and obstacles in my life. She makes me feel seen and heard and is extremely kind, professional, and open minded. I don't feel the need to hold anything back and feel comfortable speaking to her about all kinds of issues. Definitely recommend Lori.
