I am a licensed clinical social worker with over ten years of experience working in trauma, dual diagnosis, and addiction. I like to take a humanistic, client-centered approach that explores conceptualizing your experience, considering behaviors or maladaptive coping mechanisms (such as substance use, self-harming, emotional dysregulation, etc.) to be learned skills of survival and not who the person is. I maintain the belief that the client is trying their best, no matter how they show up to session. I invite your messy, your discomfort, and the dark pieces that you work to hide, in addition to your successes, joy, and excitement. I believe that we all have darkness and light and it is important to be compassionate to both of those sides. My experience is wide in various diagnoses, including PTSD, complicated grief and loss, gender identity, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, suicidality, autism, addictions, personality disorders, OCD, as well as relationship issues, transition/change, and meaning and purpose. I like to consider the different layers of each person and recognize that we are complicated creatures. Therefore, I like to adapt my approach based on what you need and not recite a list of cliched coping skills. You know the ones…”have you tried deep breathing?” My primary focus is to meet you where you are and support you in working towards your goals that you identify for yourself. I am here as your advocate, your support. I'm like the inflatable gutter bumpers at the bowling alley. I'm not going to do the work for you, but I will help you and believe in your ability to get yourself where you need and want to be. I love my work, and also find passion in writing (I hold a Master's of Fine Arts in creative writing), and am an avid equestrian. In my spare time, I can be found with the only man I will ever tattoo on my body—my horse, Henry. I really look forward to working with you—you are doing an amazing first step by searching for a therapist that matches your needs. I hope that you give yourself MAJOR CREDIT for the hard work you are currently doing as you take this necessary step in your healing process.

GriefCoping with life changes
10 years of experience as a therapist

Coping with life's transitions can be difficult. I am here to help. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am physically located in the state of Utah, and licensed in both Utah and North Carolina. I have worked for over ten years as a professional grief and loss counselor. I have substantial experience with transitions and losses associated with death, divorce, emerging adulthood, empty nesting, illness, moving, survivorship, and other transitions. I also offer counseling for those who are caring for a loved one, dealing with compassion fatigue, or facing a terminal or life limiting illness. I work with adults of all ages, from emerging adults to late and very late adulthood. I am particularly adept at issues such as coping with grief, overcoming guilt and regret, understanding anger, practicing self expression, communication of needs, working with depression and anxiety, motivation and goal setting, and identity shifts. I appreciate the effort and courage it takes to begin to research therapists. If you decide this is a good fit, my approach to therapy is warm and open-minded. I approach each session with a curious mind and a sense of openness to whatever you are ready to bring forward. While therapeutic approach and style is important, there are also practical details to consider when finding a therapist. If you are considering reaching out to me for therapy, a couple of practical details to consider: 1) I am typically an "after hours" therapist, with a schedule that accommodates members who need sessions in the late afternoon/evening or weekends. If you prefer daytime sessions, I occasionally am able to offer a lunchtime visit, but those are somewhat limited and tend to fill fast. 2) I tend to book a couple weeks in advance, which means that I am not generally able to accommodate last minute requests for same day or next day sessions. Feel free to make such a request, and I always consider it, but may not be able to oblige.

26 years of experience as a therapist

In 2019, I retired from a local Law Enforcement agency where I provided crisis intervention services to the community. It was a remarkable 20-year career helping people on "the worst day of my life." Many of those calls for service included assisting individuals and families dealing with mental illness, addiction, domestic violence, sex crimes, child and elder abuse/neglect, and death-related situations (natural, suicide, homicide, and accidental). I learned three things; people are incredibly resilient, desperate to be heard, and open to options when respect and trust exist. My ideal client meets all three. I offer in-home and telehealth counseling. My work and personal history lend themselves well to assist many individuals and families. In addition, I have a particular interest in working with First Responders, both sworn and civilian. If you are interested in speaking with an open-minded, culturally competent, and creative solutions therapist, please reach out with your inquiry or interest. I welcome challenging, complicated, and creative content issues. Thank you. I look forward to assisting you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Hurricane area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hurricane therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Hurricane due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Hurricane may not take health insurance, some in the state of Utah may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Utah you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Hurricane, Utah working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Hurricane above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

You can also try a Hurricane therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Hurricane therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Hurricane therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Hurricane therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Hurricane therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in UT, therapists may be booked out with clients.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 84737 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Hurricane counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Hurricane.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Hurricane licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Hurricane, Utah can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Hurricane has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
