Overeating / Binge Eating
This group will help individuals learn how they use food for emotional regulation. Tools for learning to control emotions will be taught and practiced in group. This group will also be part of our bariatric program. Our Bariatric program is for those who are considering bariatric surgery to lose weight. We will work in conjunction with any of the programs and doctors in the area to provide an evaluation for readiness, as well as counseling pre-surgery and post surgery.
Meet Your Counselor
After graduating from Rutgers University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Rowan University with a Masters Degree in Psychology, Lori began her career helping patients with Post-Concussion Syndrome. This exposed her to the struggles people face with addictions, and she was fascinated with the underlying root causes of the affliction. In 1990 Lori transitioned her focus to Addictions Counseling.
Over the next decade, her skills brought her to a variety of settings, including hospitals, rehabs, partial programs, and aftercare facilities. She also became a Substance Abuse Counselor for the State of New Jersey, as well as a Therapist for The Cherry Hill Alternative High School.
By 2000, Lori decided to combine her extensive experience with her own unique approach to counseling and opened her own practice with a concentration on addiction, eating disorders, and relationships.
With the help and support of her husband and co-owner Paul, O’Leary Counseling has emerged a successful group counseling center with a full staff of therapists that continues to expand to meet the needs of the community.
Lori is a published writer, and has conducted and lectured on original research throughout the country on personality and addiction.
Lori is also an Approved Clinical Supervisor that currently supervises several clinicians in the process of acquiring their LPCs.
