Lori Mariani, PsyD
PSYCHOLOGY POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW, LICENSED CLINICAL SOCIAL WORKER
Lori seeks to empower fellow humans in developing a relationship with themselves beyond internal challenges and external influences. She maintains an awareness of an individual’s unique set of skills, beliefs, and challenges while utilizing an integrative approach to support children, adolescents, adults, and families. Lori specializes in helping others navigate the effects of traumatic experiences as well as challenges associated with anxiety, depression, grief, chronic pain, harmful patterns of behaviors, and high-functioning autism.
Lori’s psychotherapeutic approach blends conventional and traditional healing modalities. She offers narrative, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapies as well as the adjunctive practices of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Somatic Experiencing®, trauma-informed yoga, and embodied meditation. Her extensive experience was accumulated while working within schools, inpatient psychiatric programs as well as outpatient offices in urban and rural environments throughout the United States and while living in Hong Kong.
Lori received conventional education while achieving a Master of Social Work (MSW) from The University of Vermont and a Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) from California Southern University. Her education is bolstered by exposure to varying cultures through travel and the study of traditional healing methods throughout Asia and Aboriginal communities in North America. Lori is also a 500-hour certified yoga and meditation instructor trained in India.
