I believe strength comes through vulnerability – the willingness to allow someone into the space of what you feel and think, asking for and accepting help along the way. I believe change can only come through choice, and I hold space for my clients to make that choice.
I approach therapy from a person-centered perspective, believing and valuing that everyone has their own set of needs and strengths. I employ a variety of methods in my treatment, primarily focusing on cognitive-behavioral and trauma-competent (EMDR) techniques and practices.

Education and Professional Background

I received my Bachelor of Science in Social Work at Weber State University in 2012, and went on to receive my Master of Social Work at University of Utah in 2013.
I have worked with various age ranges, providing a range of services. During my graduate internship, I worked with at-risk adolescents at Mill Creek Youth Center, providing individual, group, and family therapy. After graduating, I worked at YCC Family Crisis Center where I provided individual trauma-based therapy for adolescent and adult victims and survivors of sexual assault/abuse. I have worked in Children and Youth at Davis Behavioral Health since 2014, providing individual and family therapy, and working as the primary group therapist for the agency's day treatment program.
