About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Utah with over 5 years working in a therapeutic capacity. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have focused on those with a criminal history and substance use disorders during the last 3 years.

My counseling style is non-judgmental and self determination focused. I believe that people change when they are ready and they make decisions the best way they know how. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, humanistic, and psychodynamic approaches. Your sessions are your time, I will ensure it is spent in a way you find beneficial and your goals wills be yours to accomplish in your time.

Changes is never an easy task but the first step is making the choice to engage. Everyday you show up is progress in the right direction. If you are ready to take that step I will do everything I capable of to help you move forward towards the life, dreams and goals, you desire.

I look forward meeting you!

She has been the only therapist that I feel genuinely cares for me and helps me find the root of the problem. She has given me the perfect advice on what to do for all of my situations and reminds me of how well I am doing. Made me feel comfortable since day one. Love this girl to pieces <3
