Lori Tanaka

Counseling Apprentice


Moved by the Lord’s unrelenting, covenantal grace in her life, Lori desires to help others apprehend and embrace His grace as well. Additionally, she highly values hearing and understanding the intricacies of a person’s life in the counseling room. Lori describes her time at Westminster Theological Seminary as personally and professionally transformative and will be forever grateful for the excellent theological and counseling training afforded her through her professors.

Along with her husband of 34 years, Lori has raised and educated three sons and six daughters. Her youngest is 16 so she’s still in the thick of parenting a wonderful teen! From her yearly overnighter with her daughters to an annual baseball game with her sons, she relishes time spent with her adult children and three, young grandchildren.

Facing the empty nest, Lori has resurrected her long-buried interest in quilting. She also enjoys reading memoirs, Thai cuisine, and bargain-hunting.
