I have been in the mental health field for over 10 years. I have worked at a non-profit providing education and support to those with mental health challenges and their families, provided compassionate care to patients in a psychiatric hospital, and obtained a master's degree in social work. I worked in Salt Lake City as a therapist before relocating to Sanpete County to pursue my dream of living and working in a rural community. Through professional training and my personal journey through life's challenges, I provide competent and compassionate treatment to those looking for relief from mental and emotional distress.
COUNSELING DESIGNED FOR YOU
Whether you are looking for help coping with the stress of life, searching for hope through emotional distress, seeking deeper intimacy with your partner or overcoming compulsive behaviors that disrupt your life, I can provide an individualized approach to help you achieve your goals for wholeness, peace and joy.
Guidance & Inspiration
Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, addiction, low self-esteem and the aftermath of trauma can get in the way of a full, whole life. Through individual counseling sessions, I can help you understand your underlying needs, the obstacles that trip you up and how to navigate the complex web of mental and emotional experiences to find the peace you seek. I can give you tools and techniques to handle stress and help you find insight and inspiration to help you achieve greater happiness. I commonly implement cognitive-behavioral therapy to address thinking errors and behavioral missteps that lead to depression and low self-esteem. I provide eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to mitigate the effects of trauma and instill positive self-beliefs about your abilities. I use experiential techniques to help you express challenges you can't put into words. Working together, we can find your unique path to wholeness.
No relationship can be more rewarding or more challenging than that with our chosen partner. Miscommunications, misunderstandings and hurt feelings can lead to a loss of closeness, trust and true intimacy. The challenges of this primary relationship can sometimes bring deep emotional pain and distress. I can help you and your partner understand where love goes wrong and find solutions to provide for each other's needs, advocate for your own, and reconnect (or connect for the first time) in an indescribably deep way. Using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) as a framework, I can provide practical suggestions to bring you closer and help you gain insight and understanding to your deeper emotional needs. Through hard work in session and out of session, you and your partner can experience a closeness you have never felt before.
DESIGNED FOR YOU
A Customized Approach
Your needs are unique. Your counseling should be, too. Using various therapy frameworks, I can design a therapeutic approach that fits your personality, your needs, and will help you find the healing you seek. Therapeutic approaches I employ include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), artistic expression, and experiential approaches. Whatever your needs are, I can teach, guide, and encourage you as you travel your personal path to healing.
