About

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.
I specialize in teen and young adult counseling. Group work is a very effective way to help teens feel safe in talking about their emotions. I run several teen groups and I really, genuinely love working with adolescents!
Fuller Theological Seminary Graduate. I am in private practice and I am affiliated with Christian Counseling Centers in San Carlos and One Life Counseling. Even though I am Christian, I work with people of all faiths and have a very open mind when it comes to alternative faiths and lifestyles.
