Approach to Supervision:
Lori provides a supportive setting to help her supervisees find their style as a sex therapist. Inspired by Systemic therapy and Metaframeworks, she helps her supervisees focus the basics: to understand their ethical responsibilities, how to conceptualize their cases, how to structure a treatment plan, and intervention application. From there, Lori helps supervisees celebrate their strengths and identify the areas they’d like to improve. Supervision is designed around each supervisees needs. Her approach is compassionate yet challenging, positive yet direct!
