Hello, I'm Lori, welcome to my profile page! Working with families has always been a passion of mine. Since 1994, I have worked with families with the goal of facilitating effective communication and emotional health. It's not easy growing up in the Bay area today. I grew up on the Peninsula and it is a totally different world now for our kids. I have two teenagers myself, and the pressure they feel to succeed sometimes feels insurmountable! I lead several teen groups. Teen groups provide a safe place to come and talk about those challenges.

Does it ever feel like there should be more to life? When you react once more to a difficult event or person, thinking – "I don't want it to be like this any longer… I feel ready for my life to take a positive turn". Life can be different and better than it is right now. There are places we can go together that are hard to find on your own. However, there is a path, roadmap, and way to achieve your goals. I'm here, and I'm ready to begin our journey. I have experience treating school-age children, parents, and family groups for anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and social-emotional difficulties, to name a few.

Welcome! What is a mosaic? It is little imperfect pieces of glass or tile that come together to form beautiful art. How can we create a mosaic within ourselves and in our lives? All the broken pieces of glass or tile can represent trauma, experiences, life journeys, parts of our self, etc. that we sometimes don't necessarily know how to understand them all to incorporate them into our sense of self. I have a passion for working with people to help put these pieces together in a way that creates the beautiful mosaic that is YOU!

It is difficult to begin therapy; many people carry a therapist's business card in their pocket for weeks before they start. But if you're in a lot of emotional pain, it can feel like life is running you rather than you running it. Once you reach out for support, the process starts. Together, we'll explore any distorted thinking patterns you may be having and develop your strengths so that you can regain a sense of agency and equanimity. We'll focus on your core values and how you can make changes in alignment with them. Your precious life is worth it! I do have current openings ... and I look forward to talking to you.

Why is it always easier to beat ourselves up than to say loving and empathic things to ourselves? I believe that we are comprised of multiple "parts" and that sometimes our negative parts are so loud, we have trouble connecting to our self-compassion. It can feel easier to perpetuate personal stories of unworthiness than to locate our strength. In my practice, I know that regardless of their pasts, everyone deserves compassion and the support to rewrite painful stories. It is easy to forget that moments of happiness are not the same thing as having meaning and purpose in life.

What type of San Carlos mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in San Carlos?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
