Seeking a therapist for yourself, your child, your spouse, a friend or loved one is often difficult. I can appreciate that and I work to create a warm, comfortable environment where my clients can focus on themselves and make the needed changes in their lives in order to live more happily. I work with adults, "tweens", adolescents, couples and families. I have a background in the cognitive-behavioral approach as well as family systems theory but tailor my approach to the needs of the client I am working with.

If you're feeling stuck and need support to find a better way of coping, I can help. If you're feeling grief, anxiety, or depression, I can listen and bring some supportive tools. Working with a past trauma can bring feelings of hopelessness, overwhelm, and anger, We can work to make a plan to change thoughts and behaviors that keep us all stuck. I am a parent and a classroom teacher also, so I can help navigate the school-family relationship, and offer some support about parenting frustrations, interpersonal conflicts, and stress around parenting. I work with youth often and really understand how tough that period of time is.

Welcome to my page! I want to honor your courage in making it to this step in your therapy journey. At some point all of us will experience brokenness, and our past may leave its marks. I like to think of healing through therapy like Kintsugi—the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. Instead of hiding the break, the gold honors its uniqueness and makes the pottery stronger than it was before. Like Kintsugi, our true beauty can be shown in the way we fill our cracks to help us heal. Our flaws and wounds make us who we are, and by honoring them through our restoration in therapy, we become stronger people.

I create a safe and nurturing therapeutic space for adults, couples & teens who are facing major life transitions such as college, career, divorce, or personal loss in finding a joyful and fulfilling path forward. I also provide empathetic guidance to the “sandwich generation” – women and men who are raising children while also caring for their elderly parents and struggling with anxiety and depression as they attempt to juggle it all. I help families navigate the complexities of raising children, adolescents and emerging adults in a healthy, cohesive way.

Who doesn't need therapy? Therapy is unique. It is a safe space where you can be completely who you are. Within the therapy relationship, you are able to say things that you have bottled up, you are given opportunity to identify your blind spots without judgment or shame, and you are able to attune to what you really want in life. I am a big believer in hearing your own voice, getting in touch with your values, and making decisions that align with what is important to you.

First of all, thank you for reading my profile. I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience working with adolescents, adults, and families. Adolescence and young adulthood are challenging life stages, given the complexity of today's society. Teens and families are often presented with numerous barriers to healthy growth and development. Now, more than ever, therapy can be helpful. The decision to begin therapy is important, and choosing the right therapist is often challenging. As a therapist I demonstrate passion for the work, commitment to my clients, understanding, and acceptance in a nonjudgmental atmosphere.

Addictive behaviors are difficult for an individual as well as their loved ones. The initial step in meeting a new client is getting an accurate assessment to facilitate the necessary level of treatment for a drug or alcohol problem. Services available are individual, group, and family therapy for adolescents and adults. In addition, I provide services for personality disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression and OCD. A safe, supportive and caring environment is available for you to discuss your needs.

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.

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.

As we evolve through life, we are faced with challenges and new roles that may make us feel inadequate and uncomfortable. It is not uncommon for a person to feel stuck or lost during this time. For the past 25 years, in an educational and therapeutic setting, I have worked along side families, adults, and couples to help create effective ways to tackle such challenges. When we negatively question our self-worth and strengths, it is time to develop productive ways to break old patterns and see through truthful lenses.

When we decide to turn toward our own experiences with care, support and mindfulness we learn to respond instead of react. In some ways change is not easy, it's not a straight line and it's unpredictable. Yet, if we don’t actively build a momentum toward responding, we will grow our suffering through reactivity. The mind is changeable and we can become the guardians of our minds. Emotions are like the weather and we can learn to weather the emotional storms. Our bodies store memories & trauma along with tremendous wisdom. When we value being present, cherish feeling alive and meet life with an open heart we grow these capacities.
