Empowering women of all ages to effectively navigate difficult life experiences in ways that RE-form them from the inside out.

Hi, I’m Lorie, a professional clinical counselor and transformational life coach who geeks out about things like identity theory and positive psychology and spiritual formation and developmental stages. (I’m weird, I know.)

But I don’t just geek out about it—I live it. And I find my greatest joy and fulfillment down in the trenches, helping people wrestle with some of life’s hardest questions, like Why am I even here? or How will I ever get over this? or What is wrong with me? or How does someone get through something like this?

Or the most difficult question of all to answer,


Because what most people don’t realize is this: the way we answer these questions ultimately FORMS us.

This means I specialize in the hard stuff:

• Chronic Illness and disability
• Significant life transitions
• Grief and loss
• Lingering effects of trauma
• Spiritual doubt or deconstruction
• Identity, purpose, and calling

I specialize in these issues because I’ve EXPERIENCED many of these issues. This is why I’m passionate about empowering women of all ages to effectively navigate difficult seasons in ways that RE-form them from the inside out—helping them transform THROUGH their question-asking into the women they were created to be. Because answering those questions changed my life.

One of the primary “tools” I utilize along this journey is the enneagram—because it helps us answer some of these tough questions at the deepest, most authentic levels and engage with those answers in ways that stretch and shapes us. You simply can’t find a better tool for transformation.

Friends, if you’re experiencing one or more of these issues—the kind that make you think “life will never be the same again”—I’ve been there. I get it.

And I can help.

If we observe ourselves truthfully and non-judgmentally, seeing the mechanisms of our personality in action, we can wake up, and our lives can be a miraculous unfolding of beauty and joy.
