DR. A. LORENZ & COLLEAGUES

Dr. Lorenz is currently in general clinical psychological practice and treats a variety of issues, from very short-term solution focused issues to more complex difficulties which require emphasis on a variety of approaches and may include diagnostic tools. She continues to work with individuals facing a major crisis in their lives.

 

Dr. Lorenz is in the process of shifting her practice interests within clinical psychology, and has decided to collaborate with colleagues who specifically choose to work with treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, anxiety related- disorders, PTSD and disorders that are associated with depressive disorders and related circumstances.  

 

She continues to treat individuals facing a major crisis in their lives.  Another area of focus is currently associated with pain, chronic pain and pain-related disorders, health issues and IBS/GI and complex medical problems. Dr. Lorenz continues to treat a range of disorders associated with traumatogenic events and she continues to conduct both complex and forensic psychological evaluations, as well as evaluations for treatment planning which include diagnostic findings and treatment plans for individuals and organizations.

Treatment Approaches

Treatment approaches depend on the needs and purpose of the planned treatment and will be decided between psychologist and client/patient.  


Currently, Dr. Lorenz has begun to focus intensively in areas that are addressed with hypnosis and similar approaches to help facilitate more complex disorders. The following treatment approaches are usually part of what she engages in: 

Hypnosis

For anxiety disorders, including PTSD; depression and depressive symptomatology; various phobias; painful conditions and health rehabilitation.  Hypnosis can be helpful as a means to accomplish all other treatments as it is a process that can integrate many ways of absorbing new information and facilitating change.

Cognitive and Behavioral

These approaches are often included and combined with all other treatment approaches. 

Logotherapy

An approach that helps to identify a sense of purpose and long-term goals in treatment and rehabilitation.For anxiety disorders, including PTSD; depression and depressive symptomatology; various phobias; painful conditions and health rehabilitation.  Hypnosis can be helpful as a means to accomplish all other treatments as it is a process that can integrate many ways of absorbing new information and facilitating change.

Visualization/Imagery

An approach that includes imagery and art, such as drawing, painting, film and photography, can be used in a more comprehensive treatment plan where more complex or difficult issues are reviewed.
