Donna Lordi, LCPC
Behavioral & Mental Health (IPD), Counseling
My philosophy of care includes a comprehensive scientific and behavioral approach to treatment that looks at mental and physical health, as well as all psychosocial factors for the individual. The relationship between the mind and the body is a powerful one, and I am a big believer in the harmony between medical and mental health care. In working one-on-one, I customize an individual plan for each patient that I meet which is specific to their needs. I believe that we should always see a demonstrable benefit for time spent in psychotherapy; as a former software developer I am very solution-focused. I view myself as a very practical therapist in that I aim to treat the root cause of issues rather than focus on the symptoms alone. Therapy for me is also a collaborative process. I seek to empower patients through education and encouraging their agency in the healthcare system, because these two things lead to more positive outcomes in the long run. I also connect with the struggles my patients face. For example, I am passionate about bariatrics because I myself have been a bariatric patient and have lost several hundred pounds, so I have both clinical and first-hand experience regarding the process. This means I really understand the impact that changes in our mental health can have on our physical and psychological well-being, and how important it is to find a provider that both empathizes with us, and helps us achieve our goals, as well.
