WHAT FELLOW THERAPISTS 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
“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 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.”
