About Lori

 

My clinical specialization is working with adolescents, young adults, adults, and parents. 

 

When working with youth, I provide strategies that honor their emotional well-being while also partnering with parents to support healthy functioning within the family system.  

 

In addition to my clinical practice, I am an Adjunct Instructor in the Graduate Counseling Program at St. Mary's College of California, teaching Advanced Clinical Practice and Communication Skills I and II. I also supervise graduate counseling students in field placement training.  

 

I find my work to be tremendously inspiring and fulfilling and I feel privileged to be able to partner with my clients in their important life work.
