Whether you are dealing with interpersonal conflict, relationship issues, family dynamics, or just need to “vent”, I believe my experience and approach to therapy can help.
I believe that within each individual lies the answers they are searching for and that therapy provides the “sounding board” to find those answers. In my 20 yrs as a therapist providing mental health and addiction counseling, I have found success in helping my clients discover their true potential and find inner peace amidst uncertainty and conflict; and the key ingredient to my success is recognizing each individuals potential for healing, developing a “connection”, and using an empathic, client-centered approach.

I utilize a postmodern philosophy, solution focused brief therapy, narrative therapy, systems theory, and internal family systems approach in therapy.
We all have a unique perspective of reality from our own lived experiences. We possess, develop, and utilize our strengths throughout these experiences. The meanings that we create are expressed in narratives we tell ourselves and others. Together people create networks of relationships as they share narratives and create experiences together. These networks of relationships can be a source of both constraint and strength. I strive for therapy to be a sanctuary place free of judgement, so people can express the multiple parts of themselves. I strive to meet people with curiosity, creativity, compassion, and a desire for connection.

My specialty and passion is working with family relationships.
Why do you want me as your counselor? Because I believe what human intuition teaches us - that when you feel connected, heard, and valued then you find the strength to live your fullest life and make the changes necessary to achieve your goals. I am the luckiest counselor in the world because I get to wake up each day and do what I was born to do - to connect with people. This helps my clients to discover what they stand for and what gives them meaning in life.

Being a Marriage & Family Therapist doesn't mean that I'm just here for couples or marriages, it's just a type of licensure that means I have been systemically trained (marriages and families are systems).
Are you scared to start therapy because you might be judged? For your trauma, past, sexuality, pronouns, open marriage, religious (or non-religious) affiliation? One of my greatest strengths in the therapy room is that I show up as a human, a real person, not a therapy robot who cannot possibly relate to you or your struggles. It's tricky feeling like you can find a therapist in Utah that can understand your struggles, especially if you live outside of the mainstream culture. If that's the case, we might be therapeutically aligned. You're not alone, you're not wrong or bad, and there is hope that things can change.

I am devoted to assisting families, couples, and individuals discover what their happiness looks like and how to get there. I believe people are not their problems. I believe problems are made up of varying components through experiences and relationships. Being a Marriage and Family Therapist means I approach issues through a systemic lens. I view individuals as part of a system, not as the problem. I have a genuine understanding that everyone has a story, and that story needs to be heard. I enjoy actively listening to clients tell their story and validating their experience. I love helping clients live their best life!

Your family can live a more connected and loving life by focusing on helping yourself or supporting your teenager in healing themselves.
Parents, do you feel that your teenager is lost? Have they lost interest in activities that they used to enjoy? Is your teenager refusing to accept boundaries in your home, struggling socially or in school? Or perhaps they are beginning to develop unhealthy habits such as isolating, too much screen time, or beginning to experiment with substance use? Or maybe you have lost yourself? As parents we often become so caught up our children’s lives that we forget to live our own. You are not alone. Right now, you are taking the first step to get help. You are doing something brave!

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
