Irene, the founder of Couples In Step, first met Lori when Lori volunteered to assist at a Couples In Step Hold Me Tight Retreat. Irene was immediately taken by Lori’s friendliness and professionalism. Lori continued to participate as a Roving Therapist at subsequent Hold Me Tight® retreats. The Hold Me Tight® participant couples who had Lori stop by their couple station raved about Lori and expressed their appreciation for her therapeutic skills.
Lori believes every couple has their story and their own way of communicating it. She will treat your story with care and thoughtfulness.
The regulatory bodies that govern the work of mental health professionals in Ontario require College members to maintain and enhance their skill level. Lori meets these annual requirements and more! She is an avid learner and Irene is continually amazed by how many extra courses and workshops Lori takes to enhance her therapeutic skills.
Lori has been practicing psychotherapy for more than 15 years in Toronto and currently practices in Richmond Hill, York Region.
Prior to providing psychotherapy services Lori gained expertise in the following areas:
- Caregiver support and education
- Compassion Fatigue
- Palliative care
- Community Health Care
- Elder Abuse and Domestic Violence
