She is seeing clients at the Shannon County Family Clinic and the Ellington Family Clinic.  Lori has over 20 years of experience working in a variety of settings, including community mental health, schools and hospice.  She specializes in treating children and adults with trauma issues, depression, anxiety, grief and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). She provides a safe, non-judgmental therapeutic experience for clients to process current and past life stressors and learn to manage difficult emotions.  Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Person Centered, and Play Therapy are some of the therapy approaches she incorporates to assist her clients in meeting their goals.
Lori earned her Masters of Social Work with a Family Health Concentration from Missouri State University in Springfield, MO in 2000.   She is originally from Summersville and currently resides in Eminence.  Lori and her family love to spend time enjoying the beauty of the rivers and woods of the Ozarks.
