About Me

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist in Utah and have been helping individuals achieve their treatment goals for 11 years. My approach is warm and compassionate, while also being direct and to the point. My favorite modalities are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I am also trained in EMDR (trauma therapy) and other modalities. I like to tailor the treatment to the individual and will draw from whatever modality I feel is needed for a particular client. I have worked in different settings, which has given me a wide range of experience with issues such as depression, anxiety, loneliness, stress-related issues, mood disorders, trauma, family conflict, and general guidance and decision-making. One of my strengths is being able to really put myself in someone else's shoes and get a really good sense of how they feel. This helps people feel that I really do understand their struggles and helps them feel supported and that they are not alone. This, combined with my experience and knowledge, has proven to be an asset to individuals that work with me. I do not like to mix religion with research-based treatment and would not be a good match if you are looking for a religion-focused therapist. I consider myself to be open-minded and not judgmental. I am more than willing to answer questions and understand that not every therapist is a good match for all individuals. You will never feel pressure from me if you need to try someone else after interacting with me. I look forward to meeting you and working with you!

So far we've only talked a handful of times but even just that little bit is helping a lot.

Alessandra, is always willing to listen, help and understand what is going on in my head and she had given me ways to think differently and feel differently then I'm already doing.
