Lori has extensive experience in the treatment of eating disorders and has worked at the Center for Eating Disorders, which is now part of the Shepard Pratt Health System. She has also lead in the development and facilitation of community programs in Carroll County in the areas of eating disorder treatment, awareness and prevention.
Lori believes in bringing problems into the light and applying biblical truth. She sees her role as an encourager: lending hope to the hopeless, prescribing interventions, teaching healthy coping skills, and challenging old ways of thinking. Lori’s view is that therapy is the method, but that only Jesus is the healer. Lori believes that each individual client is unique, has individual needs and areas in which they desire growth, and wants to meet them where they are in their life. Lori welcomes people from all walks of life, regardless of where they are in their faith journey. Lori brings sensitivity with her clinical training, along with the love and grace of Jesus in her heart.
