I know what it’s like to face life’s many challenges, including the following
- Family grief and loss
- Eating disorders
- Life transitions
These life experiences have given me empathy for others as they face their own struggles. I believe as we come to recognize the ways our past influences our present, we can better understand ourselves. We will be able to make peace with what has happened/is happening to us and move forward to live a more purposeful and happy life.
Who Am I?
I am a Clinical Social Worker with experience working in a range of therapeutic settings, from inpatient care for substance abuse to private practice. I work with clients in Bountiful, Salt Lake City, and neighboring cities in Utah affected by depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, grief and loss, and relationship challenges. One of the experiences that influenced me to become a therapist was my volunteer work at a domestic violence shelter, where I was certified as a core advocate for survivors. Outside of my work as a therapist, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, hiking, and traveling to new places.
The Best Therapeutic Approach in Utah
It takes courage to reach out for help, and I would love to be there to help you on your journey.
I use a person-centered, collaborative approach to therapy and have confidence in the power of the therapeutic relationship. I believe my clients are not their problems, but are trying their best to adapt and survive what life throws at them. Using a compassionate and curious stance, I teach skills to cope while helping clients find their inner resources; this empowers them as they go through the healing process. I will be there to support you as you heal from past traumas and find your path forward with more resiliency to face life’s challenges.
