About me

You have taken the first courageous step to improving yourself. I am here to support you in this process. I have 15 years of experience working with individuals, families, adolescents, and children. With a non-judgmental approach, I help clients feel safe sharing their thoughts and feelings. Relationship issues, mood disorders, parenting challenges, issues of young adulthood including separation, self-confidence and identity, and family conflict are some of the areas I have explored with my clients. Cognitive-behavioral interventions and a strength-based solution focused approach allow individuals to gain insight into patterns of thoughts and behaviors and motivate them to make changes. Becoming aware of skills you have and harnessing them to meet your goals will result in greater satisfaction. My authentic, honest style allows individuals to quickly establish rapport and trust and leaves them feeling cared for and understood. I look forward to meeting you.

Dr VanMeter is a natural listener. She let me do all the talking and she repeated back to me what she thought she was hearing. Someone I intend to lean on intimes of extra stress in my life.

Talking to Dr. Van Meter is like talking to a friend. She listens, really hears, and offers helpful advice and tools. She always cross-checks to make sure her guidance resonates with me and fits my style/needs.

Dr. VanMeter (Ph.). is amazing. She is very helpful and always has unique ideas. In the first couple of weeks I already saw a huge difference in myself thanks to her help. I have never felt judged or hopeless during the sessions. I would HIGHLY recommend.

I've only been speaking to Dr. Van Meter for a couple of months, but so far she's been above and beyond any other therapist experience I've had before. She makes sure to provide lots of options for communication, and she's very attentive and helpful with her suggestions, makes me feel like she's actually listening to what I'm saying before giving advice. Great experience with her so far, seems like an incredibly experienced counselor, highly recommend!

Lori is an INCREDIBLE therapist, and I have benefited tremendously from our weekly sessions together. She is attentive and caring, has open ears and always thoughtful words in response. I truly feel fortunate to have been matched with her on BetterHelp, and would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for support.

Dr. Van Meter helped me through the toughest time in my life and I don’t think I could’ve had the courage to do what I did without her constant support and guidance. I left an unhealthy situation and managed to stay away thanks to her. She responded quickly and at even ungodly hours on the weekend when I needed help. Forever grateful and highly recommend!

It is still early on in my counseling with Dr. Van Meter but it has been nice talking to her. I feel like I have a friend helping me work through things. It’s just nice to have someone there to listen when I’m having a stressful day. It is also really nice to have someone support me and basically say “your thoughts are reasonable” or “I understand why that would stress you out”.

Dr. Van Meter is very concerned with my well being. She is always checking in if she hasn't heard from me and I really enjoy that. I feel like she really cares for me and that is what I need in my life. I know that she will be available if needed and she is phenomenal at responding within a good amount of time- sometimes within 20 minutes. I also like that she is open to counseling the way that I feel most comfortable and is willing to work through my past counselors mistakes.

Dr. Van Meter is constantly listening to me and helping me think through a lot of situations in a better way, I find myself really testing and allowing myself to think things through before assuming the worst! She is a really great counselor and I highly suggest her!

Dr. Van Meter is a very caring therapist that will not only listen to my feelings but understand them as well. If you are looking for a comforting person to be able to help you rationalize your thoughts she is the perfect match. For someone like me who just opened up to therapy it is great to feel that support system when I can’t get it from anyone else.
