About

Hi, I am Lori. I am currently providing support to Women & Non-binary identifying folks living with physical, emotional, sexual, and psychological abuse and other Mental Health situations. I offer this support in the form of individual counselling and support groups to survivors, through an intersectional, Anti- Racist, Trauma-informed, and Anti- Oppressive lens. My main experience is with the Afro-Caribbean & Black community. If any of this interests you or you have questions, please send me an email and we can explore your next steps.
Here to help you process your experience, start healing, finding the answers within, and change for your future. We do this by using various modalities such as strength-based, solution-focused, client-centered care. Your plan of care is created through a bio-psycho-social lens with you in our first few sessions and is flexible to be changed and adapted.
I hope you feel safe and cared for during your time with me, also that we can arrive at answers to the questions and feelings that you are having. I invite you to reach out and see how we can work together on your healing journey. Remember this isn't a sprint, healing takes time even if it is one step a day. I am here to cheer you on.
