About Lora

I became a clinician because I truly enjoy seeing others grow into their fullest sense of self, empowering them to live their most authentic lives, and supporting people through life’s challenges.
 
During my career as a therapist, I have served in a variety
of contexts including community mental health, child welfare, pastoral care, private practice, and telehealth. I love the flexibility and accessibly that telehealth care offers! I also hold a doctoral degree in International Psychology with a trauma specialization and have a strong background in cross-cultural competencies, equity, and inclusion best practices.  In addition to being a clinician, I am a full-time university professor.
 
I understand the challenges and barriers that exist for people to reach out for emotional support, and I am here to journey with you in this process.

I enjoy working with a variety of diverse people, and I have extensive experience in working with individuals who have experienced trauma, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, LGBTQ+ issues, and general relationship challenges. I truly appreciate working with children, adolescents, and young adults.  I am also a qualified supervisor in the state of FL.

A bit more about me

My family and friends would describe me as a positive, friendly, and genuine person; I am perseverant, hardworking, and engaged.

When I am not working with clients or teaching, I love to spend time with my husband, children, and my dogs- Daphne (left) and Pavlov (right). I also like baking, skiing, walking, running, traveling, nature, spending time in the mountains, and listening to my favorite podcasts (I am a huge true crime fan). 

I am originally from central Illinois, resided in Florida from 2016-2021, and I currently live in the Denver metro area.  I hold active clinical licenses in all of these states (IL, FL, and CO).

I see therapy as a unique, dynamic process that allows an individual to experience new ways of thinking and being that best align with their truest sense of self.  I believe that anyone can benefit from therapeutic services.
