About me


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with over 15 years of experience working as a therapist and over 25 years of experience working with children and families recovering from trauma, grief and loss. I have worked with clients suffering with a wide range of diagnoses including mood disorder, depression, bi-polar, anxiety, panic, trauma, PTSD, dissociative disorders, psychosis, adjustment disorders and gender dysphoria.

My therapy style is collaborative and client-centered. I believe that the best therapeutic work is accomplished when clients are provided opportunity to feel safe, respected and able to have a strong connection with their provider. I strive to create a working relationship within which clients feel safe and at ease. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, trauma-focused, emotional-regulation training and the practice of Mindfulness. In the last year, I have had the privilege of adding a First Responder-specific trauma certification to address the complexities of primary, secondary and compound trauma in First Responder fields. I am honored to work with First Responders and Veterans and hopeful that my diligence to stay abreast of the latest research and treatment in trauma will benefit these groups as well as all trauma-impacted lives. Additionally, I have been able to increase my trauma-focused enrichment with the pursuit of certifications in Body-Work treatments for trauma and stress-impacted presentations. I will work with your unique strengths and needs to create a treatment plan specific to you.

It is a brave step to seek help for symptoms that are often misunderstood and dismissed in a busy and distracted world. I am ready to meet you right where you are and help you create a great plan of healing and hope.

Looking forward to meeting you!

I have been going to therapy for more than 20 years. Lorin is by far the best therapist I have ever seen. She has changed my life. I have seen my life improve and my health get better since I have been working with her. I feel very lucky that I have found her.
