Hello, my name is Lorry and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have a Master’s of Social Work from the University of Utah with an undergraduate degree in Human Services. I have worked with children and families for over 20 years with direct clinical interventions for the past 6 years. I have experience in child welfare, crisis situations, post traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and trauma interventions. I have provided therapeutic services to individuals, couples, children and the elderly with a wide range of situational issues and severe mental illness. Most recently I've been working with woman that are incarcerated in prison. I enjoy working with people and love what I do. My practice and approach with people is a firm belief that we all deserve peace, empathy, encouragement and unconditional positive regard no matter the circumstance. I believe there is a great deal of power in education, communication and connection.
My scope of practice includes looking at the person as a whole. This includes looking at your support system, self care, coping skills, diet, exercise and basic needs. What works for some may not work for all and this is a collaboration to meet you where you are and expand on your current strengths. I have trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Veteran specific PTSD.
I am very happy to be given the opportunity to take this journey with you.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse

Lorry has been great! I was very hesitant to switch counselors when I started using betterhelp. I'm super glad that I did, and got Lorry! She is knowledgable and listens, has great resources, etc. I'm thankful she's my counselor (:
She helped a lot! It was nice to have someone immediately understand what I was going through, and describe things back to me better than I could have phrased them myself. She gave me a few key pieces of advice that made all the difference. Thank you!!
I have loved working with Lorry, she has been incredible in supplying me with the tools I need to work on the healing process in the face of loss. She is really great at checking in with me but also gives me the space I need to respond in a timeframe that works for me- I get overwhelmed easily and she has been very supportive in the small growth that has occurred over the past few months but reminds me to look at the victories, even if they're small.
She is so helpful. Very responsive. I highly recommend!
First of all, I am so grateful for how Lorry was able to get right at the top of my situation. And I don't think that I could have done as well with my own family or the holidays if it wasn't for her. It seems cliche but she was literally a life preserver just when I truly needed it the most. I feel that I am not alone, and I know that I don't have to let my thoughts or personal judgments about myself defeat all the progress that I have made so far. For me personally these 4 months are hard. And I can't believe that if I didn't find Lorry, I didn't know what to expect.
So once again I am so grateful for Lorry. She is my best present this year for with her help I know I can get through the whole process of getting well.
