Lori Shoemaker, M.S.W., LMHC

I’m very happy that you have decided to take the first step to improving your life. Each step along the way will take a certain amount of bravery and hard work, which is why you don’t need to go it alone. I can help you find the direction you need to take on this path and help you stay on the path despite setbacks and difficulties.My extensive experience has shown me that the key to unlocking a more contented and rewarding life lies within the individual. My role is to help you find that key so you can unlock that door for yourself.

If you’re here because of a long-standing issue that has held you back for years or a recent situation that you find overwhelming to tackle alone, let’s work together to uncover the answer to a more fulfilling life.
