About Lori Richardson, MSW, LCSW

Lori is motivated by the transformative potential in each person’s life. Throughout her career, she has gravitated towards guiding healing paths, combined with a prevailing interest in neuroscience and powerful therapies that supercharge positive feelings. At heart, she sees herself as a teacher, helping her clients learn to rewire their own neural pathways. For many years now, Ms. Richardson has witnessed daily how these therapies allow people to transform lifelong thought, identity or behavioral patterns into new ways of thinking, feeling and being. She often finds that her clients experience positive changes in their lives that previously seemed impossible and unreachable to them. Her work is informed by eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Accelerated Resolution therapy, Brainspotting and emotional freedom technique. Lori is also clinically fluent in Spanish.
