Choosing to begin counseling is a powerful first step towards your future. I believe strongly in working with people where they are at, helping them identify their goals, and then helping them begin to explore how that path is possible. I believe that there is no one way to healing, and I enjoy getting to know people and working with them on their unique needs. I have a warm and interactive approach, taking time to truly know my clients as people. I have over 10 years of experience, and began my career as a Music Therapist, and discovered that I has a passion for counseling, so continued my education to also obtain my Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) Certification.
I have worked with some very specific and sensitive issues, including sexual offending behaviors, trauma in teens and children as well as adults, families with children with special needs, and severe mental illness and psychosis with all ages. With the adolescent population, I have worked in all manners of settings from residential treatment, partial hospitalization, outpatient therapy, and even contracts within schools. This is such an important and formative time in a teens life, I truly enjoy being able to help them develop the skills that they need to craft a healthy and successful future. These experiences, combined with my outpatient work has provided me a wide variety of experiences and tools with which to help my clients. I take a Person-Centered approach, and utilize solution based therapies to help the client determine what health looks like for them, and work towards that vision. I look forward to working with you!
- Stress, Anxiety

As a victim of trauma I was told to find a very compassionate counselor and I am so grateful to her for having that quality and in a healthy manner as to not increase my codependency issues. Having trust issues as well, she never makes me feel shamed when I tell her about really sensitive issues. She is a great counselor and extremely knowledgeable in different aspects of therapy
Lori does a fantastic job with understanding who you are as a person and presents skills and tools to help right from the start. I have appreciated her input and she's been a great help in me getting towards a better place. She's very nice, encouraging, and I really appreciate her style of therapy.
Lori is well informed. She’s always able to provide me with a different perspective.
Two sessions in with Lori, and I feel she already has a very good understanding of what I’m trying to work on. She is moving us into a solutions-based strategy rather than just talking and talking, which is what I need.
I've only worked with Lori for a few weeks, but she's really helped me sort through my thoughts and actions. She really understands my concerns and responds thoughtfully.
I’ve only been talking with Lori for a short time but she’s already helped me in so many ways. Speaking with her has removed the “weight” that I’ve carried on my shoulders for so long now. She’s great!
Lori Kolb is great! She understands my concerns and helps me discover ways to cope with my concerns! 10/10 would recommend.
Lori Kolb has been a great influence for my son as he adjusts to the many changes at his school. He likes how Lori responds to stories and the insight she provides to tackle his anxiety. My son says she listens attentively and has great solutions and coping mechanisms for him to try. She is also very accommodating and flexible.
I have been seeing Lori for about 2 years now. I appreciate her so much. She listens very well without judgement. She has excellent communication skills. I find that when she gives advice it is very knowledgeable. She is well educated. She always gets back to my emails in a timely manor. She always starts the appointment on time. She has never cancelled on me. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for online counseling.
I lucked out and had an incredible psychologist for a few years, then once that major disorder was tackled, I had to be discharged. I felt a bunch of loose ends and Lori was the one to help facilitate tying them together. The work we do in our sessions is uplifting, enlightening, encouraging and productive. She's an incredible therapist and I am grateful to have her helping me through so many struggles.
Lori was very helpful in exploring, talking about, and trying to remedy what was going on with me at a time when I didn't think anyone else really wanted to invest that time in me. She was very accommodating and I would strongly recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Lori Kolb is without a doubt the best therapist I've ever had. She's incredibly understanding and supportive and really gives me the tools to understand myself and my mental health better and what I need to do in order to overcome certain obstacles. She works with me at my own pass in a way that allows me to come to my own positive and healthy solutions for different issues I'm facing instead of outright telling me what to do or asking me in a judgemental manner why I'm acting a certain way, like I have had other therapists do in the past. I have definitely been able to work on a multitude of issues with Lori and I believe that my mental health now from working with her is better than it has been in the past year and I haven't felt this confident and healthy mentally in a long time so I would definitely and absolutely recommend her.
She's extremely kind and patient. There are times when I won't respond to her in weeks, something more than a month and she always sends me messages checking up on me and making sure that I'm okay. I always see her messages and it makes me smile and happy knowing that she cares and is looking out for me, even when I'm not at my best. I know it's her job, but I can tell that she does this because she cares. It's a tough job being other people's support and it's really something that you have to be passionate about to continue in this line of work. I think Lori does an excellent job and she points out and highlights the good things and the bad and helps me work through them and reminds me that there is always good out there as long as we are keeping ourselves open to them.
Lori is a wonderful counselor. I have felt heard and understood for the first time in a very long time. I value her expertise and her willingness to help me, and anyone would be blessed to work with her.
Lori is so friendly, warm, kind and approachable. She’s understanding and helping me work through things at a difficult time, she’s helping me figure out all my options with no pressure. Thanks Lori.
Lori is incredible. She doesn't just listen and respond with things like, "and how does that make you feel?". She really listens and asks good questions that make you think and responds with insight. I would recommend her to anyone.
She helps me when I have a bad day and asks why and we talk it out.
Lori has taken the time to get to know me and the concerns I have in my life, and has worked with me to find ways to improve several of those issues. She's always quick to respond, and is encouraging in a very genuine way. I'm really glad I've been given the opportunity to work with Lori.
Lori is very attentive and a joy to talk with! She has great insight and has a friendly, almost motherly vibe to her, while remaining professional.
Lori is amazing. I love using teen counseling number one it's really amazing that I can touch base with often through out the day. Simply put it would take me months to catch a therapist up to speed. Lori and I email back and forth at least once a day and that support is so cool because in sessions I might forget and have to remember and have to bring it a week later. I'm thankful for her support. She really is amazing and supportive I'm so thankful that I'm not being judged.
Over the past year working with Lori, I can not explain using words how much my life has improved. I am very grateful for how much she has help me better my life.
Great strategies to make life easier and communication more effective.
Lori has been very helpful to me, and I really appreciate all the help so much. I cannot thank her enough!
Lori does a great job at helping me get to the root of my issue.
I have been working with Lori for a few months now and I can't recommend her highly enough. She is compassionate, professional, knowledgeable, non-judgmental, and extremely supportive. She always gets back to me quickly and when I don't touch base she always checks in, makes sure I am doing ok, and reminds me that she is there whenever I need/want to talk. I can't thank her enough for the help she's already given me and I am very confident she will continue to help me moving forward. Thank you Lori!!
I am very happy to have Lori Kolb as my counselor. I could not ask for a better counselor.
Understanding & patient. Highly recommend Lori.
I was more than a little nervous about starting therapy online - I've always gone the traditional in-person route. But Lori as been so wonderful and in a short time I'm already feeling better. It doesn't matter that I'm in an office with her, she communicates fully and really takes the time to read whatever I send her. I also love that I can talk to her more than once a week!
Lori is fantastic. I look forward to her daily communication. She is very understanding. I have had a lot to deal with over the past four months and l find the advice given by Lori is helping me a lot. She is very knowledgeable about her subject. She has told me of at least three scenarios surrounding my problem and it has developed exactly as she said it would. I'm glad l came onto this site.
Patient, understanding, helpful, thoughtful, enthusiastic to help, active... I couldn't ask for a better counselor.
She is fantastic! She is very easy to talk to and she really makes me feel like she wants to help and is ready to always listen. Also she keeps up with my looooong replies! I appreciate that a lot. Thanks for everything Lori!
With Lori, I sometimes forgot that I was talking to a therapist and had a feeling like I was texting to a close friend. I received understanding and advice that I needed so much. Thank you, Lori.
Can't complain. She tries to understand the individual and is pretty good in her observations.
This is the first time I have tried online therapy and I would highly recommend this service to anyone because you get to have consistent help. I get to talk to my therapist almost everyday and that's really the only way to make real change in your life is to work at it everyday, and Lori Kolb is amazing! She is very caring and great at getting me to see the perspective I need. Thank you so much
I've only been working with Lori for a couple of weeks now, but I can say with confidence that I feel very comfortable expressing myself with her, and she is very understanding and supportive.
I found Dr. Lori very open and helpful! I would recommend her services to a friend.
Lori is very punctual, considerate, and really seems to care about her clients. I've been working with her for just a few weeks and feel very comfortable and that she is really interested in my well-being.
