“Self-control is strength. Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power.” – James Allen, 

Lorie Joyner is a Licensed Associate Counselor providing individual and relational counseling services with our team via in-person and teletherapy platforms.  Within her therapeutic approach, Lorie believes that “CBT makes sense!  Our actions and behaviors derive from our initial thinking/thought processes.”  She seeks to help clients express feelings with validation, move toward growth through recognizing one’s accountability to behaviors through identifying their association with patterns of thought.

Lorie received her Master’s degree in Clinical & School Counseling from Harding University.  She also holds an MS in Education.  Her work experience includes being a certified court mediator in general, civil, business, family, divorce, and domestic violence in Georgia and Kentucky, working as community-based case manager for a local mental health organization in NWA, working with the Arkansas Department of Human Service as an Intensive Family Therapist, and working in a private practice setting.

Lorie was born and raised in Boston, MA before spending much of her adolescence in West Germany.  She has lived all over the United States and moved to NW Arkansas 13 years ago, where she loves the natural beauty and the friendliness of the people.  She enjoys family (she and her husband have 3 married children and 4 grandchildren), church, outdoor activities and reading.

We are honored and grateful to have her on our team.  Call/text (479) 282-4452 or email info@fbcbt.org to learn more and/or schedule an appointment with Lorie.
