Masters Level Therapist
Hello, I'm Lori Inkrot, a counselor for Kimberly Shultz Counseling in applying for temporary licensure in Tennessee as an LPC. I hold a master's in mental health counseling from the University of the Cumberlands.
I see my clients through the humanistic psychology lens. I stress the inherent value of human beings and focus on their ability and willingness to maintain dignity while growing in self-respect and competence. I take the holistic approach (Salutogensis), integrating a sense of coherence between health, stress, and coping versus the pathogenic system that looks for a problem to be fixed. The wellness model sees the world as understandable, manageable, and meaningful. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with relaxation skills for general therapies such as anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. I apply Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Fast-Forward Trauma Therapy (FFTT) for adults, and Trauma Focused Cognitive Therapy (TF-CBT) for trauma therapies for kids and teens.
Here are some of the situations I walk along and guide clients through to health and wellness:
ADHD/ADD (Executive Functioning skill training)
Grief & Loss
Suicide ideation (CAMS model)
We are often stuck or hopeless because of environmental, social, genetic, or life experiences. I don't ask what's wrong with you. I ask what has happened to you. I try to get to the root of the distress and walk clients through their struggles to give them the tools to find health and restoration holistically.
If you're ready to take the first step toward positive change and growth, I invite you to contact me for a consultation. Together, we can work towards a brighter, more fulfilling future.
Masters Level Intern
Hi! I am a master’s level intern studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Grand Canyon University, a Christian college in Phoenix, AZ. My goal is to become an LPC-MHSP, so that I can help individuals with various backgrounds and experiences reach their fullest potential. I believe everyone, regardless of life experiences, should have the opportunity to improve whichever struggles and life challenges they may have experienced, or are currently experiencing, through therapy. Simply put - everyone deserves to feel accomplished and fulfilled in life. Through my studies, I have come to understand that human behavior is a product of our background, upbringing, and/or the experiences we have faced in life - whether positive or negative. Sometimes we need help unpacking the "hard stuff" in order to understand the big picture. At times, therapy may be difficult and may be painful, but it would be my privilege to help you begin the process and to stay with you until you reach your optimal potential.
In my spare time, I enjoy being with my friends and family, walking the nearby trails, hanging out with my dog Pretzel, cooking, and watching any show that comes on Bravo. I would be honored to help you begin your path in reaching the life you both deserve and have the potential to lead.
