The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
Suspended predator therapist now gives parenting advice
Sex abuse victims hand out leaflets warning about new group
Its co-founder was sued for sexual misconduct & just lost license
But he still calls himself 'psychologist' and offers workshops & seminarsv
SNAP is upset that he still appears on local TV giving advice about kids
Despite lawsuit settlement, until now, he's never been publicly exposed before as a predator
The victims want
WHO Three-four abuse victims, including the victim who sued the psychologist (who is speaking publicly for the first time). They belong to a support group called SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAPnetwork.org)
LoRé was also sued and settled a civil case in Alameda County (Case # RG06-260104) when he agreed to pay $200,000 to Kristi Coombs of Oakland who he manipulated and exploited repeatedly during therapy for several years.
Now, LoRe has started and co-directs an Oakland non-profit called Peace Parenting Project (http://www.peaceparenting.org/About%20Us.htm). Despite his license revocation, LoRe still lists himself as a psychologist on his website. SNAP believes this violates his agreement with the state.
The group is worried that LoRe may still be acting as a psychologist, seeing and exploiting patients, and may apply to have his license reinstated.
With his partner, Lisa Bilgen, he has appeared as an expert several times on local television, including at least three appearances on ABC7's "View from the Bay."
LoRé was licensed in 1995 and had a private practice in North Oakland at 6355 Telegraph Ave. (where he exploited at least one victim). He is believed to be living now at 1099 Mandana Blvd. (in the Crocker Highlands neighborhood) in Oakland, CA 94610. His phone numbers are believed to be (510) 428-2625 and (510) 428-2625
