Lora Tomlinson LCDCCounselor
Lora Tomlinson is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor who joined the Awakenings Hill Country clinical team in August of 2016. She was with Awakenings for a little over a year and a half when she took another offer at a larger treatment facility. She returned to Awakenings in January of 2019 because she realized working with women is where she belonged. She is passionate about assisting others in achieving a life of sustained long term recovery. She began her journey in the treatment field as a recovery advocate before she became a counselor. She describes her work as “living her passion for life”, and states she can identify on a very personal level with those she serves, since she too has achieved over a decade of sobriety. Her enthusiasm for sobriety and life, have resulted in her being a true example that long-term sobriety is an achievable goal.
Academically, she has a BA in criminal justice and human services. She has experience with several modalities for treatment, yet Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is one of her favorite.
She is a native of Texas and loves living life to the fullest. Some of her favorite activities include spending time with her family and friends, spending time outdoors, trying new things in life, and learning something new every day. An additional interesting fact about Lora is she has years of experience in training therapy dogs, which assisted our military heroes and children who faced emotional and physical challenges
