Her previous clinical experiences include practicing at a college counseling center, inpatient neurorehabilitation hospitals, and primary care, where she collaborated with medical personnel to provide whole-person care. In addition, she served on the inaugural staff of Kentucky’s first racial trauma clinic. While there, she utilized a cutting-edge therapy model based in social justice and afrocentric psychology. Her variety of clinical training experiences allows her to work with a multitude of presenting problems, for which she is able to provide both therapy and assessment services in both English and Spanish.
Lorna primarily works with adolescents, adults, and older adults. Her goal is to provide a safe environment in which to explore one’s lived experience within the context of identity, culture, and social context. She has experience helping people work through various concerns, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, lifestyle changes, identity exploration, health problems, or just feeling “stuck”. She is also committed to maintaining an environment affirming of intersecting cultural identities, with an emphasis on social justice, anti-racism, anti-colonialism, and promotion of LGBTQIA+ and sex positive values.
