Hello there! I hope your day has been going well. If it hasn’t, well then, I hope I can assist with your tomorrow going a bit better. I’m Lori Sterling and I am committed to helping others forge better tomorrows. To accomplish this ,I utilize an emotion-focused approach that is trauma informed to provide a safe space for all. I am a graduate of the University of North Florida, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Psychology and my Master's Degree of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Currently, I primarily provide individual counseling to adolescents and adults. My areas of expertise include emotional difficulties, life transitions, LGBTQIA+ issues, school issues, and personal growth/development. While these are the areas of expertise for myself, I maintain that therapy is not a “one way street” so to speak. Therapy is an ongoing conversation between therapist and client, with the ultimate goal being the client’s own personal design. I, as your therapist, walk with you to provide support and tools as you move towards your ideal self. I believe that all people deserve tomorrows that are brighter than their todays, and I hope I can assist you on that first step towards that ideal. Feel free to schedule an appointment. Let's begin your journey!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first few sessions, one can expect a gentle ease into therapy. The relationship between therapist and client is critical for overall growth, and how often does one speak about their greatest woes within 10 minutes of meeting someone? Initial sessions will focus on building comfort, feelings of safety, and getting to know both therapist and client. All goals and treatment plans will be made collaboratively, and will be completed as a conversation between us.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize Emotion Focused and Narrative Therapy as primary treatment methods in my practice. In practice we will focus on the sources of distress and the emotions associated with these sources. While processing these emotions, we will take a deeper look into the impact these emotions have had in shaping viewpoints and opinions about one's self and their surroundings. While Emotion Focused and Narrative Therapy are my primary treatment methods, I am eclectic by nature and utilize interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, and Art Therapy as well.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I've been told that my greatest strength is my compassion and willingness to learn. I truly care for all of my clients and I wish to see them grow into their most authentic and powerful selves. I am excited to see this growth and I am curious in who people will become when they find their peace. This curiosity allows me to be open to learn and adapt with my clients.
