Lorraine began “cheer leading” and supporting her single friends back in the late 1980s. She was always available with insightful input and measured advice. That eventually led to further study and full scale relationship and life coaching in 2005. After years of review, Lorraine noticed similar trends in many of her friends’ behaviors and thinking patterns. Both male and female friends were making the same mistakes and missteps in relationships over and over again. Being able to pinpoint and define such behavior is often difficult for the person directly involved in the relationship. Lorraine was able to elucidate the issues and devise clear and concise plans of action to help her clients get back on track to fruitful and loving relationships. Lorraine’s client list now includes clients of all races who enlist her services via The Spencer Coaching Group.

As the mother of an autistic son, she is an advocate for parents of newly diagnosed children on the spectrum. Time is precious with an autistic child and the sooner one gets the proper testing, knows and obtains the proper interventions; the better the outcome for a child on the spectrum to live as well as possible. Lorraine is also the mother of a child with Dyslexia coupled with Dysgraphia. As a result, she has researched those conditions as well in order to provide answers that develop coping and compensation skills.
Lorraine has a passion for writing song lyrics and has written several for many genres of music. She listens to music from around the world analyzing international acts and compares them with American entertainers past and present. Because her passion is so strong for music as well as a few social causes, Lorraine was right at home writing songs that address autism, domestic violence (DV) and the national “No Wedding No Womb” (NWNW) initiative. Her favorite music is between the late 70s and 80s pop and International R&B.
