Lori Pearring, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Elk Grove
Relationships are tough. I can help you de-escalate conflict, rebuild trust and safety, and connect emotionally. You can learn to repair and forgive past hurts and stop your negative patterns. Let me help you be a safe haven for each other. Emotion Focused Therapy, a research-based approach, has clinically proven to help 7 out of 10 couples! Whether you're engaged or decades into your marriage there is hope and a clear map to reconnect. I can help you navigate through different seasons of life. I regularly offer a Couples' Educational Workshop, "Hold Me Tight" with excellent results!
I love my job! I naturally recognize and cultivate potential. Clients say I'm "down to earth" and "easy to talk to". They're my heroes as they courageously take steps to change their lives. And I hope to work myself out of a job! (Except for quarterly tune-ups.)
I can help you identify, explore and develop your individual strengths with specific action steps. Developing your Emotional Intelligence will build confidence and lower social anxiety and awkwardness. I use online psychometrics: Gallup StrengthsFinder, Personality Profile (DISC), Emotional Intelligence tests and the Golden (similar, but more clarifying than Myers-Briggs).

Parenting with Love and Logic

This practical parenting group is $150/couple and is offered 2-3 times each year!
