Lorin Leake

Lorin is a generalist intern at the MDC and is currently completing her Master of Clinical Social Work at Smith College School for Social Work.

Lorin has worked in a variety of settings and with clients of all ages. Her prior experience includes supporting college-aged leaders dealing with high levels of stress, anxiety, and perfectionism in challenging working and living environments, as well as supporting survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault as a Crisis Line Advocate at the Durham Crisis Response Center. As a result of these experiences, she has a particular interest in somatic experiences and the many ways that we hold powerful emotions and trauma in our bodies.


Lorin is passionate about working with young adults who are navigating life transitions. Her clinical interests include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, racial/ethnic and LGBTQ+ identity development, spirituality, social justice, and healing from trauma and sexual violence. She draws upon a combination of interpersonal/psychodynamic, humanistic, relational, and narrative therapy approaches and makes use of motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness techniques. Believing you already possess everything you need within you, Lorin strives to provide a caring, safe, collaborative relationship in which to explore what brings you to the MDC.
