I have found Lori to be extremely empathic, professional and ethical. She seems to embrace one’s perspective while helping you see other viewpoints. She is gently confrontational with faulty reasoning and helps you find solutions through strategic questioning. I find Lori to be very talented with the teen population and recommend her services to anyone needing non-biased support and guidance.

-MariAnn G., LPC

There is no counselor who is more dedicated, reliable, and compassionate than Lori Vann. Moreover, she is creative and innovative in her approach to helping clients and I find it even more impressive that she strives to help the families of her clients learn better how they can support and help their loved ones, too.

“Lori Vann is by FAR the BEST in the world at what she does. (I work and evaluate many like her in 25 countries on 5 continents.) I am slow to endorse anybody for anything, especially in something as sensitive and serious as this, but I enthusiastically recommend Lori Vann.”

Lori Vann  is an awesome presenter and an expert in her field!” Valerie Quintanilla, 2016

Thanks so much for the very informative ethics presentation.  I have been in practice one year after a long mom break, and it was very refreshing to delve into the issues — especially for the teenagers and social media.
I will definitely recommend your future presentations!
Gina Aalund, LCSW, PLLC, Oct. 2016

“Yep you were amazing and helpful” in regards to the Dating 101 talk. Carlton, February 9, 2015

I can’t thank you enough for diligently going through the screenplay and offering your suggestions/concerns…” Brandon Marshall, writer and director for Better Lived Than Dreamed

I have attended two of Lori’s seminars/presentations and have learned much each time. Lori is professional and personal, knowledgeable and real….all wrapped up in one! She has an interesting and serious yet calm and encouraging presentation style…. which makes for a great learning environment for the entire audience. Having been a social worker for over 30 years, I have attended, presented or facilitated many educational opportunities. I say this only because I feel qualified to give her the highest rating and to say that I will recommend her presentations to any person or group. Thank you, Lori for helping me learn new things!”
— Luann Golden, Social Worker Director of a non-profit agency that works with special needs clients

“I have actually attended two seminars in which Lori Vann taught. She is an incredibly professional and well informed counselor and speaker. Lori seems to really care about the girls she counsels, yet she is also incredibly professional which, I believe, earns her great respect. Her knowledge on current destructive, teen behavior is very helpful for parents who may not know what the new obstacles are for our children. I would recommend any seminar or event where Lori is speaking.”

You gave us much more than what we paid for!” Phyllis, counselor in private practice 3/28/15

I greatly enjoyed the training – was able to use some of the things I learned the following week.” Patrick, counselor at a government run counseling program, 3/28/15 seminar

“I have attended 2 workshop presentations of Ms. Vann’s in the past; one of which she was the primary organizer. I remain impressed with her calm style and confident, intelligent mastery of varied and timely topics. Her organizational skills, organizational style and professionalism are impeccable and flavored with calm acceptance. I would recommend her highly for presenting and/or coordinating a seminar in any of the specialties in her field of expertise. Thank you!”
— Jan
Seminar attendee

We had a women’s retreat in Dallas and booked Lori as our main conference speaker and we were very happy. Our WMU Baptist Retreat was a great success due to her motivational lecture, we learned new stress relieving techniques that are being applied. It has been a week since we were there and our group is still energized by her lecture. I would book her for another conference.”
— Maria Bell
Primera Iglesia Bautista

“Lori Vann was such a blessing to our event. We had a Youth Conference with adult workshops throughout the day. She was booked to speak to our youth but even took the time to talk with our adults.”
— Anjlia Holiday
SALT Youth Conference in Haltom City, TX.

“Lori Vann presented her information in a very well organized, easy to follow format. I enjoyed her presentation and would recommend her to any company, group, etc. that is looking for an informative presentation on what is and is not appropriate in today’s workplace. She touched on several topics including setting time and health boundaries for yourself and how to conduct yourself professionally at the office. You will not be disappointed if you hire Lori Vann to present at your function.”

“Your knowledge base and presentations skills are outstanding!”
