About Me

Lori has a vast array of experience in assessment and treatment of psychotherapy to youth, adults and families in Toronto and across Ontario. Lori’s clinical focus has concentrated on working with traumatic grief and loss, PTSD, trauma, domestic violence, abuse, first responder populations, indigenous communities and complex mental health issues. She adopts an interpersonal neurobiological approach to psychotherapy and has over 15 years of experience working with the impact trauma has on individuals, families and communities. In the past, she has also worked in both hospital and community based mental health systems providing psychotherapy. She has consulted in the design and implementation of various not-for-profit mental health programs in addition to providing ongoing speaking engagements related to trauma informed practices. In times of community crisis, Lori has been called upon by media outlets to provide her perspectives. Lori also holds the position of adjunct lecturer in the Department of Youth and Child Psychiatry at the University of Toronto and often supervises students and therapists in their clinical practice.
