Utah is known for the Great Salt Lake. In life, you may feel a bit… salty at times. You may feel upset about everything, and it feels like nothing can contain it. 

A counselor can be the person who contains your saltiness and allows you to sail across the lake with ease. All you need to do is to speak to a counselor today and see what they can do for you.

I remember making that first call to a counselor many years ago and feeling helpless on where to start and who to work with. It is one of the reasons I am a counselor today. It was difficult finding the right fit for me. Please shop around until you find the one who has the right rapport and one you can build trust with. I have worked in a myriad of therapeutic settings and it is almost impossible for me to choose a favorite but one thing I know for a surety is I enjoy the one on one interaction the most. I love to hear peoples' stories and their life exp...

Therapy is a very personal and intimate experience that we enter for different reasons. It provides a space to heal, explore, learn new skills, and receive support. WE have all envisioned some version of our ideal selves. Often times, our past hurts and experiences affect our lives so that we act out of a place of protection rather than authenticity. My priority is to help you meet your personal and life goals. I am flexible in my approach in that I value understanding individual needs in order to provide the most optimal treatment possible.
