Psychologist and Therapist in Pasadena, California Lori Ford, PhD

Lori Ford, PhD

Welcome! I am Lori Ford, PhD, MFT, a licensed Clinical Psychologist and licensed Marriage Family Therapist.

Negative mood and anxiety can keep us from accomplishing our dreams and finding joy. My style is to work collaboratively with you to understand your perspective and challenges then help you develop motivation and tools to reach your goals. I have experience with evidence-based practices and use research in my work. I also enjoy using creative skills that match my clients’ styles, hobbies, and values to ensure that these changes will last beyond your short time with me.

I have been helping individuals and families work through many different challenges since 1996. I previously specialized in adolescent drug treatment and family therapy, and I have extensive experience working with depression and anxiety. I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families.

Life is an amazing journey, and I would love to help you meet your goals and experience this journey with happiness!
