Loren is a clinical mental health counselor whose profession requires that she be skilled at communicating often complex ideas succinctly and in ways that are tailored to her audience. She is able to communicate diagnostic information and case formulations to clients, to other professionals, to institutions, and to the public as needed. These skills are easily translatable to other, non-clinical forms of writing. Where appropriate, she also knows how to sprinkle in just the right amount of pith.

Throughout her academic career, supervisors and faculty members encouraged Loren to collaborate with them as a co-writer and editor of their academic work. Loren is eager to apply the skills that made this possible to other forms of writing. Combined with her understanding of psychology and human relationships, her experience makes her an ideal candidate for your next writing venture.

Like may others, Loren studied literature during undergraduate school--unlike many others, she studied literature in her second language. This experience has helped expand her creativity and flexibility in writing in both languages. She also completed coursework in translation and has aided in an initiative by the university to translate World War II-era documents from French to English.

As you may have gleaned from the fact that Loren survived graduate school, she is prompt, reliable, and operates well under pressure. Reach out to see how she can be of help to you.
