I am a mental health counselor licensed in Utah with nearly 10 years of experience working with a wide variety of people. I have worked with clients with anxiety, depression, problems adjusting to changes in life, addictions, and more.
My therapy style is interactive and cooperative. I work to help people move toward the values they have in their lives in spite of challenges that exist in life. I believe that people suffer when they are stuck in their thoughts and believe that they are powerless to make changes in their lives, and I work to help people see how to move forward.
I work with people to help them get separated from the thoughts and feelings that keep them from moving toward the things they value and help them move toward a life with more meaning.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Relationship issues, Grief, Anger management, Self esteem, Depression, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Forgiveness, Intellectual Disability, Life Purpose, Men's Issues, Self-Love, Workplace Issues
Clinical approaches: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy
