After Lori’s niece passed away in 2011, she moved to South Florida and continued her career as a guidance counselor but felt the pull toward working with those struggling with Substance Use Disorders. In 2016, she began a 14 month program to study addiction therapy, receiving her certification as a Certified Master’s Addiction Therapist from The Academy of Addiction Professionals in Fort Lauderdale, FL in January, 2018. While working at Pride Recovery Center, Lori studied to become a BrainCore Neurofeedback Professional and is now treating clients in our BrainCore Oﬃce to “retrain their brains in order to balance and optimize brainwave functioning, and to create new neural pathways.” Pride’s BrainCore Neuroscience Program has been a huge success with clients suﬀering from addiction and has been proven to lessen symptoms such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, and ADHD, due to disorganized brain waves and years of substance use.
