Hi there, I'm Lori!

My name is Lori Andrews, Licensed Marriage Family Therapist. I am interested in the changes you are going through, how you are dealing with challenges, and what you are finding out about taking steps toward what you want your life to be. I am committed to helping you access innate strengths, recognize and let go of what no longer serves you, and live true to what you value.

My approach

The overarching approach of my work comes from Integrative or Integral psychotherapy. Under this umbrella, I use tools from Acceptance Commitment Therapy, art therapy, coaching, Polyvagal theory, and person-centered interactions. The sessions are focused on your particular needs and goals.

My focus

I work with people who are curious about how to live their optimal self through transitions and change when stepping into something new, navigating decisions about relationships/work/health, dealing with grief, divorce, or any situation that causes anxiety and stress. Many of my clients have had therapy or coaching before.

My communication style

Deep listening is important to me. You will find that I am focused on what you have to say and how you see yourself. I often ask my clients to have a journal for writing and art as a way of observing the wisdom that is guiding the process during the work we do together.

My journey to mental healthcare

In high school, I was an attentive listener to my friends. I knew I deeply cared about others living their best self and about their challenges. In college I focused on becoming a speech therapist however I found that I loved working with families the most. I also had a deep passion for art-making. I discovered a Master's program that offered Clinical Art Therapy and Family Marriage Therapy degree. To deepen my understanding of images, people, and culture I later completed a doctorate in Depth Psychology. The care I have for others continues to be the foundation of my work. It is my joy to come alongside someone on their journey.

My goals for you

In the first few sessions, we will identify the main challenge that brings you to therapy. From the challenge, we will create goals to keep us aligned with what is most important to you.

My first session with you

The first session will be about gathering information about your situation, your background, what has worked and not worked regarding your situation, and answering any questions you have. I will most likely ask you about keeping a journal for reflections and images during the session and in between meeting times.
