About this meeting
Our anxiety support groups are for individuals with anxiety, panic, or phobias of all kinds. You will learn about anxiety and discover self-management tools to master the challenges that it presents. You will also have the opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings with others who have similar experiences and grow through mutual support. These meetings are confidential and anonymous and led by Certified Peer Specialists.

About the host
Struggling? I’ve been there! I am Lori and have lived with Bi-Polar II, anxiety and panic attacks, depression and PTSD from trauma and toxic relationships most of my adult life. I also have members of my inner circle that also live with various life challenges. I live on both sides of the mental health journey. I received my certification from UNC-Chapel Hill in Peer Support in 2014. However, I have been listening to others and sharing my own experiences most of my life. I have rebuilt my life several times and explored the question of “who am I” and “why am and I here” multiple times through life. I try to live by the motto of "Living Life Forward"
Motivation for help
I am a certified HeyPeers facilitator and Peer Support saved my life. I have been successful in the recovery process and want to help others experiencing similar situations through understanding, respect, and empowerment. I offer one on one coaching and support. Contact me directly to schedule one on one sessions.

Lori is one of the best facilitators that I have had on Hey Peers, she is knowledgeable, compassionate and genuine. She listens to everyone in the group and has the ability to identify people who need extra support at that moment. Lori listens to and learns about all of the participants, and because of her interpersonal intelligence she is able to guide the discussion to a place where everyone feels heard and supported.
