• Difficult Roads Often Lead to Beautiful Destinations


    I strongly believe in the benefits of therapy for those who seek out change and fulfillment in their lives. Finding a place where you can safely discuss any and all issues in your life is a crucial piece to facilitating this change. I concentrate on each person who is sitting with me and come from an empowerment model in which I believe you have the expertise and answers and I am honored to be joining in this stage of your journey. In sessions I seek out strengths and attempt to assist you in building on those strengths.

    Lori Elderkin, LPC, CADCI

    My education includes a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from University of Oregon and a masters degree in counseling psychology from Lewis and Clark college. In my training I was able to learn how to look at our lives in a way that includes the whole person body, mind, and spirit and I bring this into my work and personal life on a daily basis. If you leave one piece of this puzzle out then the growth will not occur, and at some times it is learning how to bring all pieces together for the first time in a harmonious balance.
