7 Pathways for Reconnecting After Traumatic Brain Injury
About Lori Weisman
In a health care career that spans more than 40 years I have worked with thousands of individuals, couples and families seeking to overcome many kinds of personal challenges. My early training in speech pathology gave me the opportunity to study the intricacies of the brain’s functioning. As a former clinical director of brain injury centers in California and Utah, I have also worked with patients and couples who are grappling with the physical, cognitive and emotional challenges that result from brain injuries. I had the opportunity to train and supervise the complete team providing care for this population. As an expert witness, I have helped courts and juries understand the difficulties that brain injured patients face.
In 1993, I established my private psychotherapy practice in Bellevue, Washington, where I continue to work with individuals and couples searching for help with a broad range of life issues. People come to me for compassionate, focused support in learning better ways to deal with stress, anxiety, career struggles and complex family and relationship issues. Many patients are dealing with the effects of substance abuse, mood disorders and other psychological conditions that require specialized support. My goal is to create the safe space they need to share their feelings freely and explore new perspectives that will open the door to positive solutions.
As a brain injury specialist, I also work in partnership with other psychotherapists who are treating patients and couples recovering from brain injuries.
WHAT CLIENTS and COLLEAGUES SAY
“Lori Weisman is one of the most skilled and knowledgeable therapists in our region on understanding the complexity of brain injury as it relates both to the individual’s long-term success and the family. In particular, her passionate and compassionate support for couples as they navigate this difficult journey is outstanding. She is a great resource for the community and knowledgeable expert with national relevance.”
Deborah Pitcock Crawley
Executive Director, Brain Injury Alliance of Washington
“I suffered from depression and anxiety, which made everyday life really hard. Lori’s warmth, intuitive nature and skills helped me get past these issues.”
“Having worked with Lori now with a number of mutual patients who are traumatized by terrible events in their life, I can emphatically state that Lori is the consummate professional. There are 3 essential hallmarks that explain why she is so great at what she does: compassion, commitment, and above all else, a huge reservoir of patience. She listens without judgment; she advises without condescension; and she follows through with promises without hesitation. Every single patient that I have referred to Lori has unequivocally spoke of her in glowing terms. Having worked with her personally and getting to know her on a personal level, I certainly know why.”

“Lori was the first couples therapist who actually gave us hope. Her expertise helped us learn the skills to have the marriage we always dreamed of. She was warm, direct and fair in working with both of us.”
“Lori Weisman is the best couples counselor in the area, and the only one that I am aware of who specializes and understands the area of brain injury. Her combination of experience and knowledge is rare in our field. Lori provides treatment, training, and consultation for those who are dealing with a brain injury themselves as well as to those who are treating these clients. I strongly recommend her without any reservations. She is the best!”
