About me

I am licensed in Utah with 16 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, trauma & abuse, and depression. I have been trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am also certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization (EMDR).

Over my years of working as a therapist, I have worked with individuals from 3 to 80 years of age on a variety of experienced difficulties. I am most familiar with working with teens and young adults. I have worked in county mental health, inpatient treatment centers, private practice, and the juvenile justice field. I enjoy assisting others to improve the quality of their life while keeping in mind the affects that the family, community, and culture affects our well being.

My therapy style and approach come from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Systems Theory, and mindfulness. I want to meet you where you are at and work with you to create and reach realistic goals for your future. My therapy sessions are very much a collaboration with my client. I want to make sure you are in control of your own change, as this can be a rewarding and sometimes scary experience.

I got into this field because I am passionate about helping others. I work hard to provide a safe, understanding, and non-judgmental environment where you can get the help you need. I look forward to working with you.
