Lori Frison

Lori Frison MS, LPC began her career in mental health 20 years ago.  During that time, she has worked in a variety of settings including inpatient, outpatient clinic, in-home, and the community.  Lori became a Licensed Professional Counselor in 2002 after graduating from the Counselor Education program at UW-Whitewater where her coursework focused on family counseling.  

 

Lori has substantial experience working with individuals, school-age children, adolescents, and families.   She has specific training in multiple evidenced-based interventions including Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Functional Family Therapy.  

 

In addition to providing counseling services, Lori has facilitated trauma-informed parenting classes for Rock, Dane, and Fond Du Lac Counties.  Lori is also a registered yoga teacher and teaches mindfulness classes.  She enjoys reading and learning about what helps people create health and wellbeing.

Philosophy of care

I believe the counseling relationship forms the foundation for positive change.  Through a safe and accepting connection people are free to address what they need to and begin to find solutions to their problems.  When a person is able to experience openness and compassion while facing their difficulties, they begin to see options they could not see before. People change how they view the situation, and/or themselves, which leads to new meaning.

 

In counseling, the client’s desired outcome is the focus.  Services start with assessing what is wanted and what contributes to the current circumstances so that we can clearly define actions for reaching the desired results.  It is my role to provide interventions that match the needs of the individual or family.  The client participates fully and chooses how they want to take action.
