Lorri Kenny, APRN, CNP

I am honored and privileged to share our client’s life and health care needs. I believe in empowering others through active listening, validation, evidenced-based research, and problem-solving. I work with the client as part of an interdisciplinary team member to provide safe and appropriate medication management for clients throughout their lifespan.

I aim to develop and maintain an honest, collaborative, and meaningful relationship with the client by providing effective communication, support, authenticity, evidence-based practice, education, safe medication evaluation, and appropriate pharmaceutical modality recommendations.


My work with clients across the lifespan who need pharmaceutical interventions to treat symptoms of anxiety, depression, eating disordered behaviors, life transitions, substance use disorders, trauma, PTSD, severe and persistent mentally ill, and many other symptoms. The client and I collaborate to obtain the correct diagnosis and plan of care by implementing evidence-based treatment modalities, including medications, if agreed upon, empirical experience, counseling, and education while consulting with their interdisciplinary team.
