Lori Lindsey

Lori Lindsey White, LPC, NCC is a Virginia Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor. She has 15 years of experience working with adolescents, adults, and families. Her career has included work with the 31st District Court Service Unit as a Juvenile Probation and Parole Officer, Intensive In-Home Counselor for Youth and Families, High School Mental Health Counselor, Private Practice Therapist specializing in Adolescents and Families, Adult Forensic Intensive Community Therapist, and Residential Family Therapist for Adolescent Girls with Eating Disorders.

Lori’s counseling approach is based on the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy model, or ACT. ACT is a form of psychotherapy that helps people focus on the present, resolve issues from the past and move forward from overwhelming, difficult emotions. It is drawn from behavioral analysis, and uses techniques such as values clarification, mindfulness, cognitive diffusion, acceptance, and commitment methods to help client’s grow into their authentic selves. Lori’s passion is with helping others be the best version of themselves.
