About Loryn

Have you ever been told that you are “too much” or “too sensitive?" 

You are not too much. I'm here to welcome your sensitivity, your difference and all the big feelings that exist within you. You are the only expert on you - however I know how easy it can be to forget or to mistrust your own wisdom. We all need support, empathy, love and sometimes guidance to be reminded of our true and trustworthy selves. As women and as mothers we are often told we have to be strong and carry the load in silence. You don't have to do it alone. I am authentically me and I welcome all parts of you. Let’s do this together.  This is how I hold the work we do together.

Before I became a mother I worked with children and teens and was everyone’s favorite “auntie”. Being part of the BIPOC community, I was raised with the idea that, “it takes a village” not only to raise children, but through pregnancy, infertility, motherhood and everything in between. Every village needs healers and I”m honored to show up in a healing capacity in the lives of my clients. 

About my work:

I offer warmth and love within a safe and welcoming environment. I have a passion for working with those who have been told they are “too much” as well as those who have always had to be, “the strong one.” I enjoy working with teenagers and families as well as with those struggling through trauma or grief. I’m interested in intersectionality and identity, and cultural explorations and difficulties. The journey to becoming a mother has stolen my heart and it is my honor to be able to support others on their parenthood journeys. I have also worked extensively with eating struggles (eating disorders) and body image difficulties. I have a passion for restorative justice and working with underserved populations. Please ask me anything.

 

I received a Masters in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies.
