Meet Lori Poland
Lori is a thought leader by nature, guiding and leading innovation and conversation about taboo topics using authenticity, humor, and humility. Lori is a therapist who specializes in attachment and trauma, is trained in family counseling, child and adolescent therapy and infant mental health. Lori maintains a small private practice supporting people in attachment, relationships, and personal growth. Lori has spent the last 27 years as a public-speaker motiving audiences in self-improvement, personal introspection, and healing through life’s presented challenges. Lori shares openly and genuinely about the effects of trauma, the journey of healing, and the impact that relationships have on our growth by being open about her own traumatic experience of being abducted, abused and left for dead in the pit of an outhouse toilet at the age of 3. Lori’s healing experience has led her, along with her treating doctor from her kidnapping, to co-found The National Foundation To End Child Abuse and Neglect (EndCAN). Through her work at EndCAN, Lori continues the conversation with audiences big and small helping people to talk more openly about child abuse and neglect, moving it from its current view of being solely a social and legal issue to also being seen as a public health, mental health and physical health problem that needs attention, community, a voice, and significant change in order to end abuse and neglect. Lori’s mission in life is to be intentional, impactful, kind and loving to as many people as possible, spreading messages of hope and possibility and uniting communities to change together one audience at a time.
