Professional statement

Lori Wiesner is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Lincoln, RI who helps people with issues related to body image, food/eating concerns, relationship struggles, life transitions, women’s issues, anxiety, and depression. She sees individuals 18+ and a majority of her clients are women in their 20s-50s. Lori is a proponent of the concepts of intuitive eating and the Health at Every SizeⓇ(HAES) approach and loves helping her clients stop weight cycling and develop healthier relationships with food and their bodies. She also has extensive experience working with women who are navigating major life transitions, such as going through a divorce or breakup, making career changes, or becoming a new parent.

Lori utilizes a variety of treatment modalities, including mindfulness practices, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Interpersonal Therapy. Using a weight-neutral framework, Lori teaches her clients the concepts of intuitive eating and how to love, support, and value their bodies. Many of the people who come to see her have been deeply influenced by diet culture as well as negative family patterns and societal messages around food and body size. For all issues, Lori helps her clients identify their intentions, make choices that help fulfill those intentions, and explore and address any barriers.

Lori brings her authentic self to each session and creates a loving, judgment-free space where clients can do collaborative, insight-oriented work. She views herself as the treatment “co-pilot” and is always active and engaged, with a great sense of humor. Lori is an active member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH) and stays abreast of current research around weight, body image, diet, and mental health. She looks forward to talking with you about how she can be helpful in your quest for personal growth, greater confidence, and success.

Message to clients

Everyone has issues that can sometimes feel overwhelming, and it's helpful to have a place where you can freely unburden yourself and sort things out. My intention is to create not just a therapeutic safe space, but also a brave space to delve into deeper concerns, find clarity, and develop a sense of mastery and peace.
