I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Utah with nine years of experience supporting people with improving their mental health. I have multiple additional certifications and strive to continuously stay educated in current modalities and treatment through research and training. My approach is solution-focused, client-centered, and strengths-based with a strong foundation in healing past negative experiences or trauma.
When working with clients I strive to make the therapy experience genuine, respectful to assist in creating a safe place to process and share feelings openly. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you know best what you need in our sessions. I love honoring your strengths and hardships and exploring ways you can evolve as an individual. My areas of specialties include but are not limited to Acute, Chronic and Complex traumas, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders, Substance Abuse and Dependency, Suicidality, Eating Disorders, domestic violence, Gender dysphoria, Post Traumatic Stress Disorders, Body Image, Anxiety, Depression, Borderline Personality, Histrionic and Dependency Disorders with families, couples, and children/adults of all ages.
I am a certified yoga and Nidra Meditation teacher in which I use in my sessions as needed/requested to help with grounding and getting clients into a relaxed body. I encompass a holistic approach to my therapy services. I have an array of experience working with multiple populations. I have learned from these experiences that every individual is unique in who they are and what they need. I prefer to read my client's energy and be present in the moment with them to support them in seeking what they need in their healing. I have my own personal experience to add to my professional experience. I feel my personal experience has assisted me in being more empathetic and authentic in treating clients.
