I can help you…so let’s get started.

    Dr. Lori has been influential in my growth and development into the woman I am today. Through her life coaching I was able to gain a better perspective on why I wasn’t getting the results I desired. She has always lifted me up and encouraged me to soar to higher heights. For that I will be forever thankful. I would recommend her services to anyone. Thanks Dr. Lori!

    Dr. Lori’s experience with individuals, groups, and college students makes me trust her as a professional who will help me get over the hump when I am stuck. I know that she can help me get to my life goals and accomplishments.

    Everything I learned in communicating with or observing Dr. Lori has prepared me greatly to deal with life’s stressors and situations in a more positive light. If I hadn’t learned the things I learned from her then I would not have been as prepared for the challenges I encountered after working with her.

    Dr. Lori has been my supervisor, mentor, and close friend for over 10 years. Her wisdom and understanding of the human spirit has not only shaped the way I interact with people but has motivated me to become a Life Coach. She has an anointment on her life that I am not sure she understands and grasps. Even when I don’t speak to her, her impression on my life is evident. I love you Lori! Thank you for your part in my life!
