My Approach to Helping

About My Clients
Having a hard time concentrating or focusing on work? Dealing with insomnia or oversleeping, waking up uncertain or afraid, feeling heavy and unsure where it’s coming from? Are you experiencing headaches, muscle aches, stomach issues, poor apatite or overeating, weight gain or loss? Having difficulty with your relationships and feeling distant or isolated from others? I get it. There is so much going on in the world today. Therapy can provide you insight and help you gain better control over your emotional and physical symptoms. I look forward to assisting you with getting to know yourself better so that you can succeed.

My Background and Approach
I have a background in family, couples and individual therapy. I received my master’s degree in social work and my bachelor’s degree in human development from Brigham Young University. My therapeutic career started out as a private practice clinician where I worked with people suffering from anxiety and depression and other mental disorders. Later I began working at local hospitals providing crisis intervention for people experiencing trauma and suicidal tendencies as well as outpatient therapy. Through working with individuals I have noticed some people feel embarrassment or shame about their struggles making reaching out difficult for them. However there isn’t much I haven’t already heard or seen. I believe we are all doing the very best we can. My role is to help you understand yourself better and help you learn more healthy and productive ways to cope and gain relief. Silence is human suffering and reaching out is a sign of inner strength. During the therapeutic hour I will attune to your needs and collaboratively we will problem solve to make room for you to start building a life you want to live!

More Info About My Practice

My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe all people should have access to affordable mental health care services regardless of income and status. This is why I save 25% of my sessions for clients that can only pay $65 per session. If this is you please ask for my sliding scale. My religious beliefs are grounded in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I enjoy correlating therapeutic topics to gospel principles. I believe in the sanctity of marriage and enjoy helping couples reach deeper levels of connection. I get divorce, single parenting, co-parenting and single life after divorce. I understand the stages of grief and healing. I have two young children of my own who I single parent. While I am Christian I accept all faith backgrounds and those with unspecified beliefs or beliefs in higher powers with no judgment whatsoever. I am humbled to learn about your spiritual journey and background and am willing to incorporate your beliefs into the therapeutic process as much or as little as you prefer. You are in charge. Additionally, I love running, vigorous activity, being outdoors and spending time with my loved ones.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Seeking professional help is a sign of strength. Studies show that the better the therapeutic relationship the more likely you are to have success. Feeling connected and safe with your therapist is a vital aspect of the client-therapist relationship. To ensure the best possible fit with your provider follow these tips: 1) Call to consult with the therapist prior to the onset of therapy. Most therapists offer a free 15-min phone consultation. 2) Find out whether the therapist takes your insurance or is private pay to ensure a practical financial decision. 3) Check in about the therapist's style, experience and background. You may find that the provider has a lot to offer given your specific circumstance or that a more specialized therapist would benefit your case. 4) Remember the more energy you put into the therapeutic work the more you will benefit. Highly motivated clients find relief quicker and minimize the number of sessions significantly.
