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.
I have a very open view of religion and metaphysics. I can provide Spiritual Guidance when requested. I am working on a degree in Metaphysical science and on becoming an ordained minister. I do not believe in one religion over the other. I believe in helping you on your spiritual journey.

I have been seeing Lory for about a year now and she has been absolutely amazing. She always goes out of her way to make sure my needs are met and is very clear with expectations. She is so easy to talk to and I feel like she genuinely cares about me as a person, not just as a client. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good, honest, funny, and caring therapist.
