My Approach to Helping

I am a Registered Associate Clinical Social Worker who provides researched-based psychotherapy implementing the most effective treatments that provide measurable results. I received my Masters of Social Work from Brigham Young University. My psychotherapeutic background is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) an approach used to treat a wide range of problems not limited to depression, anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, relational issues, severe mental illness, adjustment disorder etc. Problems arise when faulty ways of thinking or learned patterns of unhelpful behavior go untreated. CBT is highly effective and produces measurable results. Many people begin to improve significantly in as little as 8-10 sessions depending on the issue. I am a solution-focused therapist and want you to benefit from therapy in the very first session. Taking the initial steps to improve your life is an essential element to your overall wellbeing and happiness. I am honored at the prospect of working with you.

More Info About My Practice

I am aware and sensitive to the cultural and spiritual beliefs of my clients and am willing to incorporate your beliefs into therapy at your discretion. You are in charge. My belief system is grounded in the principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am aware of the uniqueness of LDS families, church culture and Christian living. I completed my internship at LDS Family Services, a counseling center for the Church. I accept private pay patrons as well as an ecclesiastical leader or bishop payment when needed. I thoroughly enjoy working with people of all faith backgrounds including those with unspecified beliefs, non-religious and beliefs in a higher power. I will always respect your views and opinions no matter what faith background you subscribe to. Spirituality is individual. I am humbled to learn about your values, faith and belief system as we work together.

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.
