About Me

I have been in the helping profession for over 30 years and a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist-LMFT since 1998. I believe that the school of life brings us to many places and brings forth many challenges. The way we respond to the challenges is about perspective. I believe that reconnection to yourself is an important place to start. Life can become a maze of work, family, and obligations, loosing yourself is easy to do, and finding yourself can be difficult.
My style is to work with what you bring to session. My only agenda is to work with what you feel is calling you loudest. From there, I help you to begin to find your own voice, since that is what is most important. I believe that you know what the next steps are, my job is to help guide you there.
In addition to being an LMFT, I am also a certified holistic life coach. I use a cognitive approach in my practice. I am trained to use EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, otherwise known as tapping. This is an effective tool when dealing with many issues including stress reduction, anxiety, and chronic pain relief.
I honor your choice to begin to take your life in a new direction and look forward to working with you.

Lorraine's insights and support have been great. She's an attentive listener, excellent at providing context to difficult situations and sharing methods for coping and self improvement. I've only just begun my therapy journey with her but I feel hopeful. It's great to have an ally like Lorraine.

Lorrie has already proven herself to be a tremendous resource to me in my journey. She gives me permission to feel and explore my feelings. She guides me through large and difficult concepts/emotions. She sends me additional resources to assist. I love working with her

Lorrie has been a great help in working on my motivation and negative self talk issues! She is kind and respectful while also being charming and funny. I would highly recommend Lorrie to anyone looking for support, advice, or a listening ear.
