Lori Gayle Wenglikowski, LMSW, CADC-M


Online Therapy

About Me

I specialize in work with adults with the full range of mental health needs (mood, anxiety, trauma, thought disorders, personality disorders, suicide risk and self-harm) , anger management, LGBTQ++, gender orientation, and co-occurring substance use disorders. I became interested in Safe EMDR to help clients move through the stages of trauma recovery as a safe, structured, and supported practice that is not retraumatizing. I was amazed at the impact I experienced practicing these techniques throughout my training and want to share these benefits with others.

Education & Experience

I received my Bachelor Degree in Social Work from Western Michigan University in 1998, and my Master’s Degree in Social Worker from Grand Valley State University in 2015. I am fully licensed by the State of Michigan as a Master of Social Work (LMSW) as well as being certified by the state as an alcohol and drug counselor (CADC-M). I am paneled with most insurance companies, to be able to bill for the care you receive, and also contract with several community agencies that support funding.

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I work with many contract providers such as the local Community Mental Health agency, Probation and parole through the State of Michigan as well as Federal District of Western Michigan. I work closely with community providers to link clients to programs where they can build a natural circle of support to continue their lifelong journey during, and long after, counseling services.
