Creating Aligned Strength: Mind, Body, and Spirit.

Expressive Arts Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor Lori Landry Reeves works with individuals of all ages and groups that are seeking healing, personal growth and development, expansion and discovery, and alignment of emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.

Lori received a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, a certification in Expressive Arts Therapy from Sky Mountain Institute, and is registered as a Licensed Professional Counselor. She is also a certified yoga instructor and a contemporary artist.

Lori is supportive and passionate about combining connection, expression, and imagination on a journey with clients as they explore their creativity. Clients gain self-awareness, a deepened internal relationship, and the ability to trust their intuition working in a safe environment with Lori’s expressive arts tools and guidance.

Lori’s sessions are unique, as she weaves creative exercises and visualization into the process, and assists clients with the removal of blocks and barriers, and lights a path toward clarity and manifestation of goals and dreams.

“I honor and hold sacred the process of depth work, and acknowledge that it takes courage and a willingness to grow for one to realize his or her authentic truth. Identifying, understanding and processing barriers allow us to journey from a “stuck” position to a place of joy, confidence and freedom. There is a power and wisdom within our spirit that can guide us to love ourselves and others and to live the life we desire.”

What Is Expressive Art Work

Expressive arts facilitation combines psychology and the creative process to promote emotional growth and healing. This multi-arts approach to therapy and counseling uses our innate ability to create – drawing, painting, physical movement, sound & music, writing or other artistic medium– as a therapeutic tool to help initiate new perspectives and changes. Expressive arts therapy is a powerful means of discovery and awareness of our inner landscapes where words or talk therapy fall short.

“The Renfrew Center of Texas was fortunate to have Lori as our experiential therapist before she moved to California. She was always so warm and present with the girls and women in our program for treatment of their eating disorders. The ability to “get out of one’s head and into one’s body” cannot be underestimated in the treatment of eating disorders. It can be terrifying to even be asked to approach that goal. Lori was able to encourage and accept each individual where they were in their recovery journey. I truly admire her ability to make a space safe enough to do good therapy work through the creative and expressive process.”  
—Kiersten Rapstine, Clinical Supervisor, The Renfrew Center of Texas

“I have known Lori for 14 years, as a fellow student, colleague and friend. She has always been enthusiastic, bright, fun, talented, and incredibly intuitive. Whether she is painting one of her gorgeous canvases or helping a client as an Expressive Arts therapist, she puts her whole self into it. The results are beyond amazing.” 
—Dee Dee Just

“Lori Reeves is full of life and energy and she brings it all into her yoga teachings. What’s always amazing is how much it becomes contagious. I always feel so much more alive after taking any of her classes. She also brings in a spiritual element that supports the student to discover that connection for themselves. I would take any of her classes any day of the week. She is truly a gift.”
