Lori Alford

Lori Alford, LCSW, is a therapist who has been facilitating Sharp Grossmont Hospital's Behavioral Health therapy groups for over 15 years. She uses a mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy approach.

Lori enjoys the sharing, support, and development of insight and self-counseling skills that are fundamental to the group therapy process. She's interested in the concept of biophilia — humanity's innate connection to the natural environment — and loves helping clients practice mindfulness with walks about our beautiful Sharp Grossmont campus, abounding with mature trees, verdant foliage and multicolored rose gardens.

Lori loves dancing, hiking and going to early music concerts. She is an art and architecture enthusiast and her favorite quote is "Through the pursuit of beauty we shape the world as a home and, in doing so we both amplify our joys and find consolation for our sorrows."
