For over 10 years, I have worked as an Art Therapist in a variety of establishments, ranging from private practice, First Nations, federal agencies, and community based organisations. Lora's approach to healing begins with a client centred, holistic approach providing a connected, personal therapeutic experience.

Drawing upon my life experiences, as a an artist, teller of stories, mother, and above all else a wisdom seeker, I continue to learn from the diversity of clients I work with. The honesty and strength I have experienced with clients continues to be one of my greatest teachers.
