I specialize in three different types of clients – couples who love each other but are on thin ice, stressed-out executives who pay the price of success as well as accomplished gay men who feel like an imposter. As someone who has been through and overcame a fair amount in life, I have a great deal of empathy as well as a nifty toolbox for those who are ready to get off the merry-go-round. You may be trying to pick up the pieces after a betrayal, or just tired of arguing about the same old sh*t or wrestling with negative thoughts that hold you, hostage. I am ready to roll up my sleeves if you are and help you sort it all out.

Is worrying waking you up at night? Does anxiety seem to sneak up on you when you least expect it, or make you feel like you can't live the life you yearn for? Are you tired of feeling so "frozen?" You're so much more than just your symptoms. Feeling anxious, frozen, or sad simply takes up too much energy that you could be using to feel happy, productive, and free. Isn't it time to get unstuck?

Many bright or gifted kids can do well in a good public or private school system. But some need more in order to stay engaged and challenged - and to be able to connect with others who share similar interests and traits. Others may have specific learning or processing problems that impede their ability to learn up to their potential. Many of these kids can be helped tremendously by proper evaluation and timely remediation.

Empathy. Validation. Alliance. Transformation. As a therapist, it is my belief that all these elements must be present for treatment to be successful. They provide the foundation for our work together. Empathy- it is vital that you feel seen, heard, and understood. Validation- I believe that ALL feelings are valid, and I strive to create a safe space for them to emerge and process. Alliance- therapy is most effective when it is a collaboration built on trust and unconditional support. Transformation- whatever you are struggling with, my job is to inspire change and help you transform into the person you want to be.

More than just a way to capture attention, the spelling of Inner Fōkus also carries a personal meaning to the founders. The name is a nod to the German heritage shared by both Dr. Lori and Dr. Patrick, since “fōkus” is the correct spelling of “focus” in German. Our heritage, culture, and environment can have great impacts in shaping who we are. Our name, Inner Fōkus, also serves as a prominent reminder of the importance to occasionally break from current patterns and try new things.
