About Me

Understanding adolescents requires a unique individual who has not forgotten what it is like to have been a teen. Working with adolescents and young adults presents many challenges and is especially rewarding for me. With an authentic, straight-forward approach, I am able to establish rapport and gain the trust of this age group. I am familiar with many of the developmental issues of adolescence including the struggle to individuate, the social pressures to fit in and be accepted, and yet find one's own identity, the difficulty managing family relationships, and the desire for independence, yet the need to still rely on parents. I am skilled at helping teens navigate the challenges of these years while trying to help them discover what the future holds for them. I look forward to having a conversation with your teenager and helping them feel that someone understands.

Dr VanMeter is a natural listener. She let me do all the talking and she repeated back to me what she thought she was hearing. Someone I intend to lean on intimes of extra stress in my life.

Dr. VanMeter (Ph.). is amazing. She is very helpful and always has unique ideas. In the first couple of weeks I already saw a huge difference in myself thanks to her help. I have never felt judged or hopeless during the sessions. I would HIGHLY recommend.

I've only been speaking to Dr. Van Meter for a couple of months, but so far she's been above and beyond any other therapist experience I've had before. She makes sure to provide lots of options for communication, and she's very attentive and helpful with her suggestions, makes me feel like she's actually listening to what I'm saying before giving advice. Great experience with her so far, seems like an incredibly experienced counselor, highly recommend!

Lori is an INCREDIBLE therapist, and I have benefited tremendously from our weekly sessions together. She is attentive and caring, has open ears and always thoughtful words in response. I truly feel fortunate to have been matched with her on teencounseling.com, and would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for support.

Dr. Van Meter helped me through the toughest time in my life and I don’t think I could’ve had the courage to do what I did without her constant support and guidance. I left an unhealthy situation and managed to stay away thanks to her. She responded quickly and at even ungodly hours on the weekend when I needed help. Forever grateful and highly recommend!

It is still early on in my counseling with Dr. Van Meter but it has been nice talking to her. I feel like I have a friend helping me work through things. It’s just nice to have someone there to listen when I’m having a stressful day. It is also really nice to have someone support me and basically say “your thoughts are reasonable” or “I understand why that would stress you out”.

Written by B.R. on Sep 22, 2020 after therapy with Lori for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Dr. Van Meter is very concerned with my well being. She is always checking in if she hasn't heard from me and I really enjoy that. I feel like she really cares for me and that is what I need in my life. I know that she will be available if needed and she is phenomenal at responding within a good amount of time- sometimes within 20 minutes. I also like that she is open to counseling the way that I feel most comfortable and is willing to work through my past counselors mistakes.

Dr. Van Meter is constantly listening to me and helping me think through a lot of situations in a better way, I find myself really testing and allowing myself to think things through before assuming the worst! She is a really great counselor and I highly suggest her!

Written by M.A. on Jul 27, 2020 after therapy with Lori for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and adhd

Dr. Van Meter is a very caring therapist that will not only listen to my feelings but understand them as well. If you are looking for a comforting person to be able to help you rationalize your thoughts she is the perfect match. For someone like me who just opened up to therapy it is great to feel that support system when I can’t get it from anyone else.

Work with me!
