Meet Lori Shapiro, LCSW-C:
“I like to keep in mind that couples coming in for relationship counseling often arrive both hopeful and fearful at the same time. The distress of our most intimate relationship can cause tremendous anxiety and maybe even despair. I want you to know that whether your relationship has hit a major crisis or just needs a tune up, I’m at home. For over 20 years I’ve been helping families and couples reconnect by rediscovering and building on the strength they make together. Great couples counseling is an art form and I work hard to facilitate an environment that allows for creativity and growth, not a one-size-fits-all approach. My clients describe me as authentic, optimistic, and always fully engaged. I work with you to help relieve the stress weighing on your relationship and help you feel more connected, intimate, and at peace.
I’m very passionate about my work and it brings me great satisfaction when people tell me I’ve provided them with a safe place to heal and connect.”
