Professional statement

Dr. Lori Woodring is a Clinical Psychologist in Stamford, CT who sees children, teens, and parents and specializes in anxiety, depression, trauma, including death, current events, illness, behavioral issues, parenting, and adjustment difficulties & disorders. She works with children of all ages.

Dr. Woodring utilizes an eclectic approach that is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). She primarily offers short-term treatment. She will first meet with parents to come up with both a treatment plan and plan on how to tweak some things at home in response to any behavioral challenges. She finds it vital to include parents in the treatment of younger children for the most beneficial and long-lasting changes. She also takes a systems approach and frequently involves other adults in her client’s life, such as teachers, caregivers, speech pathologist, etc.

Dr. Woodring connects with children/adolescents and provides a safe, caring, fun environment for them express themselves. Before working in private practice, Dr. Woodring worked as a psychologist in schools and hospitals. She served as an adjunct professor of psychology at Fordham University's Graduate School and worked as a parenting coach in London, UK.
