Silvana Santa Cruz, Intern

Therapist (Orem)

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Brigham Young University – Idaho. I am currently finishing my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and working towards professional licensing by acting as an intern. I have experience working in the mental health field in various settings, including outpatient, inpatient, crisis centers, etc. I’ve had the opportunity to work with adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, personality disorders, and ADHD. I practice integrative approaches including CBT, DBT, narrative, motivational interviewing, positive psychology, and art therapy interventions.

 I am bilingual, Spanish being my native language, which has allowed me to work with the Hispanic community as well as understand the impact culture has on mental health. I strive to be a therapist that celebrates diversity and provides various resources and approaches to help the unique circumstances of each individual.
