I have over 20 years of experience working with cancer patients and patients with mental health issues. My background includes individual and group counseling, as well as crisis intervention. I have worked with patients from 12 years old to 80 years old. I have worked with issues that range from depression to schizophrenia. Regardless of the issue, worries, stressors that you are dealing with we, together, will design a treatment plan that will help guide you to where you want to be in your life.
I take a holistic, open minded, therapeutic approach with all my clients. I wish the best outcome that you can imagine. Every treatment plan will be based on your needs - your goals. I do not believe that we all fit nicely into the same box. Everyone is an individual and walks their own path, that includes me.

LPC #79808 (Expires: 2022-01-31)
Lory has helped me immensely to understand some things about myself that I had buried due to a Trumatic childhood. My most recent therapist outside of BetterHelp, had a more aggressive approach to dealing with my anxiety, ADD, and other issues. However, Lory understands that as a sensitive person I need to take a gentler approach to managing my symptoms and my personality traits that I’d like to work on. On top of all of that, she is funny, witty, honest, kind, and I always enjoy our sessions.
I have worked with Lory for several months through BetterHelp.
Lory has helped me a great deal by listening to my stories and giving me actionable advice.
She has been very present over the entire process, be it through live sessions or written messages. My sessions with Lory were always deep, interesting but also fun.
She gave me insights on a deeper level, together with actionable insights that I could act on on a daily basis.
I have truly enjoyed all my sessions with Lory, and I believe they have helped me a great deal.
Lory makes me feel comfortable, at ease, and like my feelings are valid! I feel like I can truly confide in her. :)
