The Conception of CalmUp®

My name is Lorie, and I help people have amazing days. I’m a firm believer that bliss, joy, love—whatever word you want to use for that state of perfect peace—is always available to us. We humans, however, tend to get in the way of “what is.” Our fears, dark thoughts, irrational beliefs, negative images, illusions, and general life situations lead us astray; and we end up feeling yucky.

I conceived CalmUp® to help people empower themselves and be at peace. We can’t expect world peace, let alone harmony in the workplace and in our household, until we can experience personal peace of mind.

I developed the primary product, the CalmUp® Journey, after I became a licensed clinical psychologist. I wanted to help people feel better today, not six months or even six weeks from now. When I began my private practice, I didn’t want my patients to become dependent on me, and I strongly believed that, with guidance, they could solve their own problems. My intention was to have them accomplish their personal goals in fewer than ten sessions. Although some patients required longer-term treatment, “self-empowerment” remained the ideal to aim for.
