Welcome to Lori Underwood Therapy in San Diego!

You have access to help TODAY with your most critical relationships!

I focus on achieving realistic, lasting results for highly motivated San Diego professionals and their families in two critical areas: work and family relationships. Mine is a solutions-focused therapy practice with a proven track record of training high-performing individuals to guide their most important relationships into balance–quickly and effectively.

Work relationships can cause stress, affecting family relationships. Signs of job stress can vary from person to person, depending on the particular situation, how long the individual has been subjected to the stressors, and the intensity of the stress itself. Some symptoms of job stress you may be experiencing include, but are not limited to:
•Absenteeism
•Anxiety
•Depression
•Extreme anger and frustration
•Family conflict
•Insomnia
•Loss of mental concentration
•Physical illnesses such as heart disease, migraine, headaches, stomach problems, and back problems
•Substance abuse

Markers indicating your work relationships may be out of balance include:
•Feeling burned out
•Most everyone you know thinks you’ve got everything together, when inside you feel like you are falling apart
•No matter how hard you try you overwhelmingly feel like nothing ever seems to be “good enough”
•Others tell you they know you can do it, but deep down you’re left wondering if you can

Family relationships that are out of balance can result from and/or be the cause of stress at work. If your stress is affecting–or is a function of–your relationship with your spouse, ask yourself if you are feeling any of the following toward (or from) your spouse:
•Contempt
•Criticism
•Sarcasm
•Stonewalling

If you are experiencing one or more of the above, now is the time to take action. Each emotion can often represent a marker of a stress fracture in your relationship. The good news is your relationship can be repaired. You have the answers inside you and together we can identify them. Know that there is hope for you and your relationships. I am confident I can help you TODAY.
Bio
I am confident I can HELP you. I look forward to hearing more about your background. Here is mine:

I have experienced 25 years of success delivering measurable results with a focus on relationships as a senior business development leader working for some of the most dynamic organizations in America.

Over the course of my movement up the corporate ladder, I was able to work with teams of all kinds of talented people to accomplish aggressive goals by offering corporate clients hope associated with honest relationships applied toward solving real and sizeable business problems.

I began to recognize that our most important relationships–with spouses, significant others, children, family, friends, and colleagues–could also benefit from the same focus on shared hope and thoughtful forward movement. I looked at what brought me most satisfaction and made the decision to leverage my knowledge, experience, and skills to help others succeed at home and in their careers.

Based on my education and experience, I have found success helping clients resolve problems with a focus on exploring available solutions. Peace is most often achieved and sustained when clients are better able to work through and beyond situational (and/or longer-term) issues often associated with anxiety, depression, feelings of low self-esteem, sadness, and/or isolation.

As a therapist, my primary aim is to help clients experience more success in life and in relationship with others through increased awareness, accountability, and an interest in personal and professional growth.

Having graduated in 2011 with an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy, I am proud to be a Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern (#68950), employed and supervised by Mark A. Kaupp, Psy.D., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#33213).

I am happy to speak with you by phone for an initial consultation (at no charge to you) to determine if my solution-focused approach and your goals are conducive to achieving results in a relatively brief time period.
