all about dori

With an empathy-first mindset, Dori is able to meet her clients where they are at the time, and provide a welcoming environment for them to feel at ease with her. Dori works to have each session feel like a natural conversation with a friend, to foster discussions that are open and productive. With a strong focus on making sure that clients feel comfortable, they are able to open up and share the hard things that they face, knowing that they’ll get ample support from Dori on their journey.

Dori’s therapeutic style is authentic and honest. She carefully listens to her clients, to ensure that she really hears what is going on with them, before providing guidance. This allows for a meaningful back and forth, where both her client and Dori share their perspectives, to help identify what is core to her clients, and what is important to address and adjust. As a therapist, Dori works to facilitate an environment that supports clients in their growth, even in the face of challenges. 

how she works

Dori has a long history of supporting people as they work through challenges such as struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, major life transitions, and more. Dori believes that in therapy, the process is as important as the outcomes, and reflects this belief throughout her work, through frequent check-ins with clients to ensure their needs are being met, and adjusting when needed. 

Dori uses a strength-based and humanistic approach to help her clients feel empowered to make changes. This approach is uniquely tailored to each client, to provide them with the support and guidance that will facilitate change. Dori identifies and implements the appropriate methodology for each person she works with, which includes tapping into a range of modalities, including CBT and mindfulness. All of this is with the goal to help her clients be able to see and embrace their individual strengths, and feel ready to take on the world.

Dori understands that growth is challenging, and it’s not always a straight line - she taps into her experience to help her clients be supported throughout their work together, and to be able to help them move forward in their lives feeling better and stronger.
