Dr. Lori believes that the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves inform the way we live our lives. As a result, her focus is very much centered around unpacking the links between personal, family, and social histories.
“Problems aren’t located inside people, but rather emerge more from relational contexts. Systems perspectives allow us to examine these difficulties as relational, social, and biological. Problems cannot be reduced to personal-interior phenomena.”
