About Lori

Lori is a highly experienced clinical counselor who has been practicing for 20 years and provides professional, ethical, and non-judgmental counseling services.  She believes that therapy should focus on identifying the core issues as to “why people do the things that they do” and not solely focus on the behavior, which is a symptom of the core issues.

Recently, Lori interviewed Dr. Phil McGraw regarding the rise in Non-Suicidal Self-injury cases and his thoughts, as a professional colleague, as to why he thought the increase had occurred.  Dr. Phil’s response and his request to further discuss the topic with Lori will be posted by January 2019.

Lori offers individual & family counseling, group therapy for self-injury, professional business consulting services for mental health professionals, media commentary regarding psychological issues, seminars, training programs, & Texas LPC Intern Supervision.

Vann Self-injury Prevention and Intervention Program (SIPIP)—3 school limit for the fall has been filled, now reserving the 3 schools for spring 2019!  Make sure that your school is one of those three!
