About Loren Schiavone, LMFT
Loren was drawn to the study of psychology as a way to understand human dynamics. As a systems therapist, she is actively supporting and reflecting a person’s individual strengths and perceived barriers, while simultaneously uncovering the overt, and often covert, systems that impacts a persons’ ability to live their best life. Loren has degrees from Yale University, John F Kennedy University and Ryocan College and is a strengths-based, trauma-informed and collaborative therapist. She believes in the transformative power of a positive and enduring therapeutic relationship to challenge the long-standing beliefs that constrain our growth and joy in life. Being heard and being seen emboldens one’s soul not just to endure, but to thrive. Loren understands that a person does not exist in a vacuum and when they come to therapy, they are usually feeling tremendous discomfort and the burden or constraints of their current bio-psychosocial experience. As a systems therapist, she actively promotes inherent strengths while diminishing long-held shame and blame that often stands in the way of making choices that will enhance one’s life. Loren finds truth in the words of Ebonee Davis: "The tools you created to help you survive won't serve you when it's time to thrive"
