About me

Hello! My name is Sunny and I am a Mentalh Health Counselor who has been licensed in Utah for 12 years. I have worked as a social worker for 18 years in settings such as Utah Department of Human Services, Hospital setting and currently in a school setting. I have done individual counseling for 7 years in the school setting and now through telehealth with teens and adults.

I like to see my clients succeed and assist them in making goals. I work with clients doing cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and motivational therapy. I work with clients on self esteem and maintaining their mental health well after counseling. I encourage clients to journal and to communicate with others. I understand how difficult it is to make the decision to do counseling and I commend anyone who is seeking help. I am a very easy going person to talk with. I look forward to talking to you and getting to know you and assist with your mental health.
My sessions are 45 minutes and occasionally go over if needed. I try not to go to long after since I have other clients counting on their appointments. I understand when life happens and you need to cancel or forget an appointment. Just let me know ASAP so I can make plans around the missed appointment. If you are a no show, I will stay online for about 10 minutes and then I will likely log off to do other things. If you have questions about this you can certainly ask me!

She's awesome. I feel like she is listening to me and also helps me when I am in need and when I'm not. She's always available to me and if I am in need I message her and she is always there. I am very grateful for her
