Greetings and welcome! I’m a strong believer in synchronicity and marvel at how people find each other. I’m a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the State of Utah with over 34 years of experience working with diverse populations in numerous settings. I have a B.A. degree in Psychology from the University of California, Irvine, and an M.A. degree in Counseling Psychology (Transpersonal Specialization) from John F. Kennedy University in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m also certified in Addiction Studies and Clinical Hypnotherapy. Now living in Saint George in the serene stillness of the Mojave Desert Southwest and the red rock beauty of Snow Canyon and Zion National Park. I enjoy travel, hiking, and exploring the wonders of nature. I see myself as a guide. We embark on a journey together as I support you to travel within and discover your inner truth and birth your authentic self. This takes courage, strength, and self-compassion. Gifts that underlie our wounding in the process of healing. Learning to hear and trust our intuition and ourselves is a lifelong process. As is full creative expression. I’m interested in helping you identify what’s skillful in you and discovering and improving what’s unskillful. My nonjudgemental approach is warm and direct. I love humor and believe laughter is the best medicine. Bringing our shadow into the light reveals the falseness of fear. Let’s celebrate!

9 years of experience as a mental health therapist

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.

I have been providing counseling in various settings for over 20 years, with 12 years as a licensed professional. I am a counselor who provides services in the state of GA and Utah. I hold a Doctorate of Theology in Christian Counseling and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).

My style of counseling includes cognitive behavioral therapy; helping you to improve your mental clarity by thinking and developing coping mechanisms to overcome the issues that are concerning to you. My approach utilizes motivational interviewing. I want to point out the incongruence in what you say versus what you do; so we can begin to realign your thoughts with your actions and behaviors. Help in whatever area you are struggling with is just an email, click, text or phone call away. What are you waiting for; lets help you become your best self.

4 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Bachelors and Masters degree in Social Work, both from Utah State University. I have been practicing in community behavioral health for over four years and have recently become the program director over the behavioral health clinic I work at. The therapeutic theory I operate under the most is behaviorism. The philosophy that I use to govern my approach is rooted in the code of ethics that all social workers must adhere to. Through that philosophy, it is most important that all treatment includes empathy as its primary driving force. We are all just a few bad days away from experiencing mental illness and/or substance abuse. None are immune to stressors and pains of life, and everyone needs help sometimes. I have experience providing evidence-based treatment to a wide range of populations and individuals with various presenting issues. I have treated children, adolescents, adults, people who are older, inmates, families, and couples. I have treated and diagnosed people who have suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bi-polar, BPD, anti-social personality disorder, PTSD, dissociative identity disorder, and everything else in between. I consider myself to be capable of working with any willing person in need.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Newton 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 Newton due to a higher cost of living.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Newton 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.

Newton 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 Newton 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 Newton 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.

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

Before seeing your Newton 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 Newton.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 Newton 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 Newton 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 with a therapist 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 therapist 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 Newton, 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.

Newton 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
