About Me

About Lori B. Jacobs

Several years ago, I gave birth to my first and only child who was born extremely premature.  After spending five months in the hospital, I came to realize that my journey was just beginning.  I had no training, and no one I knew had gone through a similar experience.  I was forced to deal with enormous pressure, fear, and anxiety, along with postpartum depression.  I was suddenly responsible for raising a child whose needs I could not comprehend.

Today, my daughter is attending a state university.  It has been quite an experience dealing with numerous doctors and therapists, the public school system, government programs, and of course, the day-to-day challenges of learning disabilities and social issues.

This is why I became a licensed psychotherapist.  Once it became clear that my daughter was on her own path, I decided that I could make a difference in people’s lives that are going through similar challenges.  I received my Master’s Degree in Community Counseling from Oakland University.  Since graduating with honors, I have opened a private practice in West Bloomfield.

Concurrent with my private practice I have volunteered at the Beaumont Parenting Program, and also work with clients at the New Oakland Child Adolescent & Family Center in Farmington Hills.  I am certified by Postpartum Support International, the National Board of Certified Counselors.  I am in the process of completing Level 1 Trauma Certification from the Trauma & Loss Center.
