About Me

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York. I have Bachelors and Masters degrees psychology and a second Masters degree in Social Work. I have several years of experience in group and individual psychotherapy working with young children, adolescents, and young adults that suffer from the following:

• Depression and Mood Disorders
• Anxiety Disorders
• Behavioral and Discipline Challenges
• Self-Harm Behavior
• Complicated Grief Reactions
• Chronic Pain and Chronic Illness
• Anger and Stress Management
• Trauma and Abuse
• Family and Relationship Issues
• Suicide Assessment and Risk Reduction
• Parenting Skills
• Self-image and Self-Esteem Issues
• Relationship Violence and Abuse

I have extensive training in treating childhood trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder which include TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). I also utilize a variety of techniques and skills drawn from recognized therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strengths-Based Solution Focused, DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), behavior modification, mindfulness and relaxation. I have 20 years experience working in community mental health settings, school social work, child welfare, child and family agencies, community health and private practice.

My most rewarding aspect of being a therapist is building a solid therapeutic relationship with my clients, to create space for families to safely process, without judgement and nurture the courage to utilize their strengths to overcome challenges and achieve their goals.

I would like to work with your family in building a brighter and happier future. Looking forward to meeting you.

Lori is caring, empathetic and a great listener. She can read between the lines well. She supports you in your decisions and talks with you through the hard stuff and helps one to lay out plans.
