Lori Odendahl-Klemish MS, LMHC
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Hi, I’m Lori! I provide therapeutic services for people who crave a new way of life, need to make some change, or feel better than they currently feel. I help them sort things out, access baggage that may be holding them back, and work with them to process and obtain skills to build a better future. Many of my clients don’t realize that they have done the majority of the work! That discovery often gives them a feeling of empowerment!
I’ve got a Masters degree in Mental Health and a license in Mental Health Counseling. I have completed courses in Dispute Resolution and in Family Mediation. I have over 15 years of counseling experience. “Specialties” include working with kids, adults, girls’ and women’s issues, anxiety, low self esteem, anger, depression. I continue to increase my knowledge about trauma and its long term effects because it impacts so many of my clients. I like to use talk therapy, some “homework”, meditation, art therapy techniques and play therapy. I believe in giving everyone the opportunity to tell their story. When I’m not in session with a client, I might be doing a group, facilitating a training, on the computer, coordinating services with others, or studying something new.
At home I can be found encouraging and supporting my teenaged daughter’s goals including academics and dance. I love design and love to decorate my home. My husband and I always have projects. Good thing I like to put things together! When I have time I like to play the piano, sing, draw and paint (paintings and walls!), and hang with family and friends. Dying to know more? I want to learn to play the guitar, and secretly (not a secret now!) would love to be in a band. Weirdly, I really love to clean house. It is relaxing and I get immediate results that are very satisfying…even if they don’t last long!
