Hello and Welcome!

Thank you very much for visiting my website. I am Shiori Lange, a bilingual (Japanese/English) Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW#81730) based in Long Beach, CA. I specialize in helping older adults and their families. 

There's much to see here. So, please take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about me. 

I have a deep admiration for those who seek to heal and create a more meaningful life. My name Shiori in Japanese means "Weave Aspirations and Hopes" (it also means bookmark). Life gives us challenges sometimes, maybe more than we want. I hope that my contribution to your life will help you embrace life fully.

Please feel free to contact me for an initial FREE 20-minute phone consultation.

My Practice Experience

 Having extensive experience and in-depth training in the field of geriatric social work and social services for over 15 years, I am confident that I can effectively conduct therapy and consultation for older adults and their loved ones. 

In the past, I have worked with clients through Council on Aging and public sector. I have conducted geriatric case management (face to face biopsychosocial assessments), behavioral health counseling to older adults and provided consultation to fire fighters, paramedics and police officers regards to geriatric psychosocial challenges in the community. I also developed and facilitated numerous support groups (Grief, Caregiver, Mindfulness and Aging) and supervised GSWEC (Geriatric Social Work Education Consortium) MSW and BSW students from various graduate and undergraduate schools in greater Los Angeles.

In addition to this private practice, I currently work full-time as a Geriatric Medical Social Worker in Orange County providing psychosocial care (Post Acute care, Supportive care/Behavioral Health counseling and Palliative care) for older individuals and their families. 

I’m a certified elder mediator and have conducted numerous elder mediation sessions since 2008. 

For over 35 years, I have been practicing mindfulness meditation. I have published my thesis on “Mindfulness Focused Grief Support Group for Older Adult Widows”. I have been offering various mindfulness groups in the community since 2014. 

I have a Bachelor of Science, Family Studies and Human Development degree from the University of Arizona and Master of Social Work degree from California State University, Long Beach.
