My name is Lorre Hunter, graduate of Aurora Unveristy, with a Master's Degree in Social Work. I am a Licensed Ciinical Social Worker, with certifications in Addictions and Trauma. I utilize a person-centered approach, offering a non-judgemental and safe environment for you to grow and make the changes you desire. I believe in giving unconditional positive regard, empathy and genuineness to all clients who enter my office.
You are the expert of your life and I am here to help you make the changes you desire in your life. I have experience with many different mental health disorders and substance use disorders. Having worked with many populations, including the homeless population and homeless veterans with substance use disorders, has allowed me the opportunity to develop a deep respect for all individuals. These experiences helped me gain the values I hold most dear, empathy, compassion, respect for all, and above all else, each of us has a story to tell. I would love to hear your story.
Upon arriving at my office, you may be greeted by Hoss, my loving and faithful therapy dog. Hoss has earned his Good Canine Citizenship. I believe everyone can benefit from petting and playing with an animal. If you are not a fan of dogs or have allergies, no worries. Hoss can stay home for the day. This is your session and I want you to feel at home in my office.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidenced-based practice which helps clients with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction, chronic pain and more. EMDR helps a person create positive change in their life and the client is in control of how quickly the change occurs.
In addition, I utlize CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and other eveidence-based treatments
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
I have been a certified clinical trauma professional since 2015 and one of my deepest passions is helping clients work through their trauma. Many people do not realize how much past trauma can effect their everyday life. We can not change what happened to us, but we can change how it effects us.
Forty million adult Americans (18%) suffer some form of anxiety disorder. Yet only 40% of those who have anxiety will seek treatment. More than 50% of Americans with anxiety have a depressive disorder, as well. Sixteen million (7%) adult Americans are diagnosed with a single depressive disorder each year.
Anxiety and depression are very treatable disorders. Most people with these disorders can live a normal life, without medication. All they need is to learn new coping skills and learn how to have healthy ways of thinking,
