My Approach to Helping
Hi, I’m Lori! I knew at a young age I wanted to work in the helping profession, as I witnessed the compassion and support I received from a variety of professionals overcoming my obstacles as a person with a disability. In the fall of my junior year of high school, I decided on social work as a profession. I have never second-guessed myself on my decision for my future at 17.
I have been in the social work profession for 16 years, and I received my Masters’s in Social Work in 2009 from The Ohio State University. Throughout my years as a social worker, I have worked with youth and families with developmental disabilities, been a high school social worker, and have worked in acute care settings. My philosophy has always been person-centered, starting where my client is with their mental health and helping them create and achieve their wellness goals. I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughters in my free time. I also love to cuddle with my dogs, watch a good chick flick or comedy, write poetry, and travel.
I look forward to supporting you to achieve a better you!
