Lori works with couples and individuals suffering with relationship distress, trauma, and anxiety. She is successful with people who have previously found counseling ineffective.
Lori provides private intensive therapy for couples and individuals traveling locally, across the state, and nationally. She is an ICEEFT Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor, and leads the state in promoting and supervising effective couple therapy. With her romantic partner, she offers affordable, weekend couple workshops to benefit a larger community. Lori also specializes in Internal Family Systems, which guides and enriches her work with individuals and couples.
As you work with Lori, together you will focus on your present experience, slowing down to organize and unfold the internal and external patterns that are running your life and your relationships. As you “unpack” your experience, you experience increasing clarity, self-compassion, and freedom to choose. You have surprising, new, and transformative experiences of yourself and others.
Lori moved to Bozeman with her family in 1998. She was formerly a cognitive psychologist working in the design of complex human-machine systems. A counselor in private practice in Bozeman since 2002, Lori now works with the much more complex systems of human relationships. She is known for her natural, warm and humorous style combined with her sharp ability to see, feel and guide her clients deeply beneath the surface of their everyday experience.
Lori’s theoretical orientation is grounded in client-centered therapy, which emphasizes the importance of the client-therapist relationship. Her approach is based in attachment theory, experiential therapies, spirituality and neuroscience. Tailored to the individual client, Lori’s approach integrates Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, Internal Family Systems, EMDR, and experiential forms of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Above all, Lori helps clients to understand and transform themselves by developing deep curiosity, clarity of understanding, self-appreciation and compassion.
Lori completed an MS in Mental Health Counseling at Montana State University in 2000 and a PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Minnesota in 1990.
In her personal life, Lori enjoys the outdoors, attending cultural events, dancing, singing, her children and romantic partner.
