My name is Dr. Lora Wiens and I am a Clinical Psychologist who practices psychotherapy for adults, children, and adolescents with the Samaritan Counseling Center in Barrington, IL. A special interest of mine is gifted children and so I also offer IQ testing for children and adolescents (ages 3-17). I started this blog with the hopes of opening a dialogue about about therapy, mental illness, spirituality, and tips for surviving day-to-day life as a parent, spouse, employee, child, and friend. For more about me and my practice, check out my profile on Psychology Today. Feel free to comment on the blog directly or to contact me by phone (847) 382-4673 X15 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
