I graduated with a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Utah. As a therapist, I strive to guide individuals to where they want to be, while accepting where they are. My main goals as a clinician are to help clients become more in tune with their bodies and to increase their self-awareness through mindfulness and development of emotional agility. I have worked with a variety of populations including adults, couples, teens, individuals in crisis, etc. I have treated multiple issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, adjustment disorders and loss. I utilize approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing and Gottman’s model for relationships, in an effort to help individuals change the way they relate to their thoughts, emotions and behaviors. I also utilize trauma-based practices including EMDR and Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help individuals resolve past trauma, establish more helpful belief systems and create new meaning for their lives.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my loved ones, reading and having fun outdoors in any way I can.
