My main approach is "cognitive behavioral therapy," because it's often how we see things that make our suffering. It almost always helps to take a close look at our "self talk." I have a healthy respect for the ways in which our "animal brain" governs behavior without our awareness. I often will invite you to take a very close look at what seems to be happening now. My life experience is rich with problems many of us face. Anger, communication difficulties, deciding to stay or leave a relationship, seeing a loved one in addiction, anxiety or depression that lowers our functioning. Loss. Grief. Toxic parents. Aging. Chronic pain. I think we are more prone to isolation now. And we judge ourselves for things that are actually beyond our control. I would prefer that we appreciate how precious and worthy we actually are. It's often hard to disclose what we are suffering so even the idea of therapy is scary. We want someone else to "fix it" for us, but soon learn it's going to take some work. Don't give up or settle for a certain level of miserable. Nourish curiosity and personal growth. Perhaps you know you need to talk to somebody but you aren't sure you can afford a subscription. If you live in Salt Lake County, make use of the "Warm Line," 801 587-1055. Call before 10:00 this evening and tell them you are making a "practice call." Talk about ANYTHING for 3 min; repeat within a week. If you've already done two practice calls, you'll be able to call when needed. If you decide to work with me, complete the "information form" and explore the app enough to schedule our first session. BetterHelp works best if you update the operating system on your Android or iPhone, or use Chrome on your laptop or desktop. Explore until you find "video session test" which offers a chance to see what we look like when our camera is working. It checks to see if mike, speakers, and internet strength are sufficient. I prefer video sessions but it's okay if you want a phone session. A BetterHelp session is intended to be 30 or 45 minutes duration. I prefer 45 min and like to extend that when we are new to each other. If you come on board today, the scheduling app will not let you schedule that same day, but I can schedule it if you wish. Except for Mondays and some holidays, or if I am ill, I check the platform daily to catch your messages. There is a "bot" in the platform which demands that I reply to ANY msg, even one from me to you. Thus I sometimes use filler material to keep the BOT happy. I look forward to working with you.

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!

I am a licensed therapist in the states of New Hampshire, Utah, and Pennsylvania, with 30 years of professional work experience. I have worked extensively with clients experiencing intense depression, stress and anxiety; addictions and other compulsions; trauma and abuse; intense grief and loss; issues related to meaning and purpose; and experiences that would be categorized as unusual or paranormal. At BetterHelp, I would like to limit my services to working with individuals who have had specific life experiences related to things that may not be easy to process - like anomalous, paranormal, and other unusual experiences. There might be apprehension about sharing these experiences with a health care professional, but I am here to help eliminate that apprehension. These types of experiences (like NDE) can be both powerful and enlightening, but also confusing and disturbing. If you have had these types of experiences, and would like to explore them in a safe space, please consider me. Taking steps to explore, process, and integrate these personal experiences takes courage, but can be very therapeutic and healing. I am here to support you in that process.

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed North Salt Lake 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 North Salt Lake due to a higher cost of living.

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

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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a North Salt Lake 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 North Salt Lake.

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 North Salt Lake 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 North Salt Lake, 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.

North Salt Lake has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey.

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.
