About Lori Kandels

Free yourself from what binds you. Resolve anxiety, past trauma, work or relationship stress. Raise your financial set point.
  • Focused and Personalized
Shift your focus from surviving to creating. Change happens when we embrace the possibilities rather than the limits. We will focus on the specific changes that you want to see in your life and we will check in during every session to make sure that we are on track to meet your goals. You are unique and so is your path forward. Your therapy will be designed for your particular needs.
  • Mindfulness and Neuroscience
If you are caught in a negative story, I offer practices that engage the mind and body such as mindfulness, breath work, EMDR and EFT. When we are stressed, we don’t think as clearly and can fall into habits of negative thoughts and emotions. Those habits leave a neurological imprint in the body. Changing your mind is only half of the solution. You have to retrain your nervous system as well and mind/body practices speed that process along.
  • Brief and Effective
Many people are concerned that change is only possible after years of weekly therapy. It doesn't have to be that way. "Power therapies" like EMDR and EFT accelerate change by directly addressing the habits of thought and emotion that get in your way. Expect to see lasting results in weeks and months. My priority is to help you create the change you want at the pace and cadence that works for you.
