My approach is based on the belief that the client's emotional & mental health needs are of the utmost importance. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from referrals from current and past clients. I have 30+ years of experience in the mental health field and have worked in inpatient, day patient & outpatient settings. My experience began in 1990 at Tulsa Regional Medical Center and I became a counselor at Laureate Psychiatric Clinic & Hospital in 1997. In 2004, I started private practice and that is where my focus has remained.
I support the idea that the client is the key to their success in counseling and the therapist provides ears to listen, helps cultivate emotional growth/well-being and encourages movement toward positive/healthy change. An eclectic mix of Inner-personal, Cognitive Behavior, Dialectical Behavior, Acceptance & Commitment, and/or Whole-person therapy approaches are utilized based on the client's needs and what works best for them.
I am in most insurance company networks, listed in some under my former practicing name, Amy Lorie Dorholt, and offer reasonable rates that are comparable to the contracted rates I have with insurance companies for those who are out-of-pocket. My office is located in a very peaceful, comfortable setting that looks out to trees/greenery and I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
