Lorie Tensen, llmsw
One of the reasons I was drawn to a career as a tele-behavioral health clinician was my own life -past and present. In the past decade, I experienced a plethora of life transitions that occur at midlife: death of a parent, divorce, busy stay-at-home mom to empty nest/career woman, and menopause – not to mention all the good and bad that accompanies each of those transitions.
In between the life transitions, I wrote a book, gave motivational speeches, went to graduate school, fought depression, and explored my racial identity (I am a product of a transracial adoption). There wasn’t a lot of time left in my schedule that I could carve out for therapy and much-needed self-care. I wanted to find a therapist who was willing to work with my schedule (which wasn’t 8-5 and done), but it was nearly impossible because very few therapists have available office hours after 6pm.
The best part about being a tele-healthcare provider is having the ability to work with my clients’ schedules. You lead a busy life whether you are a stay-at-home mom/dad or knee-deep in a career. If you have kids, you’re probably chauffeuring them to school and extracurricular activities, trying to fit in an hour of exercise, grocery shopping – all of the things! Most days, we may not have a spare moment until sometime after 5pm and that’s where I come in: I get to do the work I love (therapy) and work with your schedule. Please contact me for my available time-slots. Note that my last appointment Monday-Friday is 10pm.
Treatment tools and techniques are based upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.
