I’m Lori Losen

Parenting isn’t for the weak. In fact, it might be one of the hardest things you will do in your life. One minute you might feel like it’s a piece of cake and the next you’re dumfounded as to what to do. I understand the struggle. As a mother of 3 (now ranging from teenager to young adult) I have experienced those highs and lows and then some.

I have always enjoyed working with children and began my career as a kindergarten teacher. Because of my intense curiosity in the behavior and development of children, especially my children, I returned to school to receive my Master’s in Counseling. After graduating I devoted my time to understanding and applying theories and techniques not only in working with others, but with my own family. And guess what? They work! My family has grown closer with more moments of connection. I have worked with many families who now feel more confident and enjoy their time together. It is possible!

That is why I now offer classes to parents, grandparents, caretakers, and anyone who wants to understand children and meet their unique emotional needs. We have gyms that improve physical health, weight loss centers that help with diets, why not a parenting center that supports you in your toughest job, parenting? Many times we blindly follow our friends, family, or even the current trends on YouTube (does anyone remember the old man haircut as a discipline tactic?) Why not consult with an expert in the field to find out if it really works?

Other times you and your family might be struggling for a long time, or experience a trauma and need some counseling. I also provide child, adolescent, and family counseling.

Whatever the case, thank you for visiting my website and taking the time to browse the information. Confident, attuned parenting is probably the best gift you can give your family!
