Lorrie Biermann

Therapeutic Style: I strive to create an environment where students feel safe, heard and respected as the experts of their own lives. My therapeutic style draws from Feminist, Narrative and Emotion-focused Therapies. I view counseling as a space to actively engage in exploration and collaboration. Every individual’s perspective and experience is unique, so I aim to understand the contexts of a student’s life through a holistic and intersectional lens while fostering resilience and highlighting strengths. My goal is to help students feel empowered inside and outside of the counseling room.

Professional Interests: My areas of professional interest include addressing mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, transitional stress, identity development, grief and trauma. As a queer-identified individual, I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ student population. A particular interest of mine is tapping into the mind-body connection when working to improve mental health.

Educational Background: I earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology with a minor in global diversity from the University of North Florida. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at Syracuse University.
