I have a passion for mental health. I began working in the field as a peer tutor, helping special needs peers with academic tutoring as well as learning appropriate social skills and basic home and workplace skills. I volunteered in a Child Abuse Prevention Team, where we spoke at a multitude of venues, educating people on all types of abuse and resources to get help. I moved on from there and obtained my bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in sociology. For the next couple years, I worked as a psych tech with adolescents in residential treatment for a variety of issues including trauma and abuse (victim and perpetrator), alcohol and drugs, running, fighting, gang violence, and other behavioral issues. This further fueled my passion for mental health and I returned to school in order to get my master’s degree in mental health counseling. I had the fantastic opportunity to intern with the CATS and DOGS programs in Salt Lake County Jails, a residential drug rehab program, and two outpatient counseling clinics. Since I have graduated, I have become certified in Domestic Violence. I continue to relish working with a diverse client base since joining the team at Resolutions.

I am experienced in working with clients that have faced some of the most difficult life challenges such as separation or divorce, grief, family problems, substance abuse, juvenile justice, as well as mental illness.
My specialties include Anxiety, Anger Management, Behavioral Issues, Learning Disabilities, Bipolar Disorder, Career Counseling, Coping Skills, Depression, Family Conflict, Infidelity, Parenting Skills, Relationship Issues, Self Esteem, Spirituality, Substance Abuse, and Transgender issues.

If a relationship has experienced trauma or severe stress, the individuals involved may feel their life is unraveling, pulling them into depression and anxiety. As a compassionate therapist with genuine concern for my clients, I work to promote human relationships grounded in mutuality, respect, and consideration. As clients develop healthy perceptions of themselves and find personal dignity and value, they can more fully emotionally invest in their relationships.
My education, my age, and my life experiences-both good and bad provide me with a unique perspective on assisting others. I feel it is important to work within an individual’s belief system and values, in order to move forward and promote growth. I have helped mend numerous marriages and assisted many individuals with communication, conflict, and emotional disconnection.
I do not consider myself the expert. My clients are the experts. Experiences and personalities for each individual are varied, and no single approach is the right one. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mind-Body Bridging, and a client-centered strength-based approach. My style is supportive, collaborative, and compassionate. Together we can develop meaningful goals that will produce positive results.
I strive to deliver an effective blend of experience, concern, and action to the counseling process. Additionally, empowering individuals, couples, and families to maximize outcome and provide genuine healing and wholeness. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and will graduate with an MSW, in 2018 from Arizona State University. I have over 8 years of experience with a wide range of patients in a variety of treatment settings. These programs include; a psychiatric hospital, day treatment programs, women and youth support groups, as well as church counseling services. I specialize in women’s crisis issues, as well as child and adolescent trauma, with an active interest in couple’s therapy. I strongly believe in the power of the therapeutic partnership to help uncover the strengths and resources we all possess in order to bring about the changes we desire in our lives.
