About Loraine Kern

Welcome! When you are going through a difficult time or grappling with emotionall wounds from traumas, it can be difficult to find your bearings. Anxiety, depression, anger, pain and uncertainity are unwanted visitors often "knocking loudly" at your door. Using all your best efforts, do you find the "knocking" continues?


No matter how hurt, angry or unlovable a person seems on the outside or feels on the inside,, down at the core there is a heroic, lovable, uniquely creative individual who has been trapped by life's circumstances. They need help to remove the obstacles that block this organtic process.


My client's are more that walking diagnosis, they are human beings struggling with life's issues: people who need an ally in their struggles, and someone a bit removed from their situation, with expereince finding creative ways to make their difficulties subside and their inner "awesomeness" to emerge.


My treatment specialization includes:
• Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, particularly with veterans, police officers, firefighters and other critical incident personnel
• Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
• Depression and Anxiety
• Family Counseling
• Anger Management
• Parenting Support 
• Work and Career issues
• Stress Management
• Conflict Resolution


I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) after completing a delightful three year training. SE focuses on the nervous systems’ natural ability to regulate and restore itself to balance. Somatic Experiencing encourages the body’s inherent ability to heal and restore itself in a gentle manner. Trauma is trapped in the nervous system, not in the event itself. The trauma remains STUCK when the nervous system is unable to process the trauma and release the trapped energy. Working with this modality provides the support needed to assist in the integration of sensations, image, behaviors, affect and meaning to allow the completion the nervous system is calling for.
