Lori Hoyt, MFT, LMHC

Marriage & Family Counselor and Psychotherapist

"I believe in the power of positivity. We have all experienced negativity and major stressors in our life, and thus feel a negative, often painful, impact. We all have stories, situations and experiences that have influenced us, sometimes they are overwhelming. I believe if we have a safe place to work through our stressors we have a much improved chance to live the happiness that we all deserve.

"I  have worked with many different populations of clients including children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.  I do not specialize in one particular area, I have chosen to work with many different people and the situations they are dealing with.  I have worked with clients who are struggling with Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, pre marital and marital issues, addiction, anger management, PTSD, gender issues, schizophrenia, schizoaffective, trauma, ADHD, family issues, domestic violence, divorce and more.  I have also worked with military, first responders, and other clinicians. My clients will often say that, when they leave our sessions, they carry me on their shoulders, reminding them to work very hard at finding the positive in every situation." 


“It's a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.” - Germany Kent

Marriage and Family Therapy

Marriage and family therapy observes how family members and couples behave with one another and then identifies problems that seem to be the source of the presenting concerns. Ways to change the problems are designed so that each individual has his or her needs met and the family unit can work for the benefit of everyone.


Psychotherapy is widely understood as talk therapy, sitting with a practitioner and solely focusing on our wounds of the past.  Yet, psychotherapy is far more complicated and nuanced. 


If it seems that an element of the past is impacting your current life than it is worthwhile to explore.  A psychotherapist is a guide in exploration, processing, and ultimately moving beyond unwanted ties to trauma, difficult experiences or relationships. 


However, psychotherapy frequently has nothing to do with the past.  Often it is about releasing damaging beliefs that are hindering your life's movement forward, noticing and changing behaviors that are no longer serving you, gaining insight into who you currently are while gathering a clear picture of who you'd like to be.  The psychotherapist offers ideas, strategies, insight, resources and guidance to support you along your way.

However, when you leave the therapy session you must become your own therapist.  Our time with each individual is brief, therefore, it is the job of the client to take what was accomplished in session forward into daily life to create lasting change.  In this way, with purposeful action, desired change is achieved.
