Lori Smith

(LPC, MSPC)

About Me

Working with couples is challenging at times but it is also rewarding. I have worked with couples on issues of growing apart, infdelity, financial problems and communication issues. Relationship counseling takes commitment from both parties. If you are committed to working through your issues and willing to do the work needed to make the relationship work,, I can assist you. And, if you no longer wish to remain together, we can work together for a peaceful transition. There are so many things to consider when deciding to stay or not stay together, from issues over children, to finances, to friends and extended family members. It is not to be taken lightly. Couples counseling is a challenging and serious matter. Sometimes only one partner is willing to do the work and I am willing to work with that partner. I believe there are many ways to approach issues. One size does not fit all and what is best for you may not be what is best for another. Everyone I work with is with respect, understanding and compassion. I am a LPC. I graduated from Grand Canyon University in ARizona in 2015. . I am currently licensed in Arizona and my license is accepted in Colorado, Texas and Minnesota amont other states. . I am also a holistic nutritionist, life coach and hypnotherapist.

Written by A.M. on Jul 15, 2021 after counseling with Lori for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Lori has been a critical component to our marriage counseling. She listens well, has wonderful suggestions and asks questions that make us look deeper into our relationship. We're in a much better place than we were when we started with her a couple months ago.

Lori is great. So far we have only had one video session but I am looking forward to more. Coming into this for the first time I was a little nervous but Lori made me feel comfortable right away.
