About Me

Lori_head_122015_300My Credentials:

University of Pennsylvania, MSW, LCSW

University of Arizona, BA, Teaching, Secondary Education, Social Studies

 

My career began working with adolescents and adults struggling with addictions to drugs and alcohol.  As a Family Therapist in a residential treatment center, I used education, therapy, support and 12 step programs to treat substance abusers.  These techniques were also used as Director of Outpatient Programming. I also had the opportunity to work in Correctional Facilities providing individual and group treatment to prisoners. In 1990, I became the Drug and Alcohol Treatment Professional at the Horse Racing Tracks in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

In 2000, I opened a Private Practice in Langhorne Boro, PA.  This became an opportunity to provide personal, private and individualized care in a comfortable office. Here I provide mental health treatment for children, teens and adults. Some of the problems I handle are depression and anxiety, school and work stresses, parenting obstacles, separation and divorce, grief issues, along with many other problems.

Through my Private Practice, I collaborate with schools, give presentations to communities, parents and teen groups and help train new professionals coming into the Mental Health field. Currently, I’m writing a book for parents about Setting Healthy Limits for children and teens.

My desire is to support and help people in their desire to feel better.

Special Interests:

cycling

If you want support to fulfill your passion or want to explore a new interest, I can assist you with that. Special Interests can add balance, excitement and relaxation to your life. If you have one, or would like to develop one, I can help.  I have been involved with the motorcycle community for 25 years supporting various charities and veterans’ groups.

“I needed a referral to a good psychiatrist and Lori was able to find a doctor for me.  She even wrote a letter to the doctor to help explain to the doctor why I was there.”
