Lori Soli: Counselor + Coach
Virtual counseling and coaching in California and Globally
Hi, I am Lori Soli! I am a licensed counselor in the state of California, approved clinical supervisor, life coach, and educator. I believe in co-creating an approach uniquely designed for each client.
I listen deeply to each client’s narrative and work to embolden mindful, wholehearted self-reflection in each and every one of my clients. I am a nature-loving, recovering perfectionist, wife, mum, and grandma. I am a grateful, compassionate, passionate, flawed, loving, human being seeking to contribute to the growth and wellness of any who desire to journey there. I embrace and attempt to embody self-care, wholehearted living, being in touch with universal energy, and the laws of attraction.
I aspire to inspire each unique client’s discovery of new beliefs and possibilities by supporting an understanding of their body-mind-heart connections. Clients are active participants in exploring their internal narratives of perceiving their lived experiences. I believe each person has unlimited potential, waiting to be set free.
Michelangelo is often quoted as saying “inside every block of stone dwells a beautiful statue; one need only remove the excess material to reveal the work of art within”;
I love working with people to become the works of art they already are. I ground all my interactions whether coaching, counseling, supervising, mentoring, teaching, facilitating groups, mom-ing or conducting retreats, on the person-centered humanistic principals of kindness, unconditional positive regard, and genuine interest in my client’s world. Each person I work with gets my undivided attention and energy to co-create an experience individualized to their desired outcomes. I tend toward a creative holistic approach blending methodologies including ACT, Gestalt, Experiential, Music, Movement, Drama, Nature, Yoga, Art, and Narrative. And Humor! Welcome to the Judgement Free Zone!
On a less existential note, I earned my PhD in Counseling and Supervision, and an MS in Counseling from Oregon State University (awhile back!). I maintain an LPCC license and an active PPS credential in California. I am an NCC, ACS, a BC-TMH, and am in process of becoming a BCC! I have certificates in coaching, trauma-informed therapy, crisis intervention stress debriefing, NLP, among others. If you want to know anything about me, just ask. I am as open and non-judging a person as you will ever find!
