Hello, My name is Lori Lewis. I am a compassionate Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner known for my ability to connect with clients and bring a sense of calm in times of chaos. Clients often refer to me as the "Psych Whisperer" due to my talent for understanding and supporting individuals from all backgrounds. I recognize the importance of having a supportive and understanding ally by your side. As a trauma and rape survivor myself, I empathize with feeling misunderstood and alone. Together, we can take meaningful steps to prioritize and protect your mental well-being. Investing in your mental health is a valuable pursuit, and you don't have to navigate it alone. I strongly believe in the uniqueness of each individual and am dedicated to helping you achieve health and wholeness. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to mental health treatment. I take an inside-out approach, listening attentively to your goals and vision for optimal well-being, incorporating mindfulness, and understanding your personal idea of the best version of yourself. Through a personalized and evidence-based treatment plan tailored to your needs, we can work together to enhance your quality of life. Rooted in southern hospitality values, kindness and authenticity are at the heart of my practice. My sincere wish is to see you thriving and happy.

I offer a safe and non-judgmental space where you are encouraged to openly share your concerns. With attentive listening, I provide empathy and validation for your experiences. Together, we delve into your unique situation, taking into account your values and goals. Your active participation in crafting tailored strategies and practical solutions is encouraged. Our sessions promote personal growth, self-discovery, and enhanced self-awareness. Rest assured, I am here to assist you on your journey, sprinkling in some humor along the way – well, at least I like to think so. Throughout our work together, I will remind you of your strengths and resilience, uplifting you as we progress.
