Clinical Director (All Locations)
Managing Director (Provo)
I am committed to ensuring that you feel welcome, comfortable, safe, and are matched with the best counselor to meet your needs. I am a highly empathic person and want to do all I can to help you begin feeling better.
I can help you discover small yet simple solutions to your personal struggles that will make a big impact in the way you feel and live your life. We will work with your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and use solution-based skills to help you be more in control of anxiety, trauma, and/or depression.
If you are looking for Couples/Family Therapy, I can help your family discover harmony, trust, teamwork, and feelings of closeness. We will do this by working on new communication skills, how to fight fair, and awareness of the underlying emotions that contribute to the problems.
I advocate for the use of holistic and mindful therapies before medical-based options. I also incorporate cutting-edge neuro & bio-feedback technology and virtual reality therapy into these specialties.
My areas of expertise are finding peace with anxiety (personal & social), finding joy and life amidst depression, overcoming hurtful trauma and PTSD, and helping the LGBTQ+ come out confidently in society while assisting in their difficult transitions. I advocate extensively for the LGBTQ+ community and deeply empathize with the intense difficulties they have as they search to feel whole and connected.
Having served in the military, I work closely with individuals experiencing PTSD and various forms of trauma. I served in the United States Air Force stationed in Panama City Beach, FL. I am a dual licensed clinician practicing both Mental Health Counseling and Marriage & Family Therapy.
Call or email now so I can starting helping you live a more fulfilling and happier life. I would be privileged to work hard with you to help you start feeling better.
