About Me

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.

Lori was in tune with my needs and truly listened to me from my first session with her. I felt like she was an old friend who understood my issues and concerns. She is a compassionate person who is there to make suggestions and tell me her thoughts and opinions honestly. That's all very important to me.

Lori makes me feel seen. She makes me feel heard.
That means everything to me right now.

(I will submit a more comprehensive , well thought-out review at a later date. )

Lori is so easy to talk to. After a session, I always feel calmer and a sense of clarity with what is going on.

She’s amazing! I’ve gone through so many therapists in the past couple of years and she makes me feel so much better and have hope to improve my mental health
