About My Clients

I am LGBTQ+ affirming, multicultural in my approach, and celebrate diversity in my therapy office. I work with individuals over 17 yrs old, couples, and families. Many of my clients are dealing with the effects of divorce, faith transitions out of or within high demand religions, coming of age, and relationship issues. I run groups for spiritual and religious trauma. I also love working with interfaith marriages.

My Background and Approach

I view issues in therapy through a lens of trauma. I am trained in IFS, DBT, and EMDR approaches and modalities. I am an eclectic therapist and feel that various approaches apply to various clients. As a person-centered therapist, there is never "just one model" that I would use for any therapeutic opportunity. As my background is in education, psychoeducational approaches are often taken in my office, and don't surprised if I pull out a white board mid-session! I have been supervised for the past year with some of the most amazing trauma therapists and feel equip to address deep rooted issues with my clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My undergraduate degree is in Sociology, and these roots run deep! I am committed to social justice as an individual, retired educator, therapist, and mother. Equality and women's issues are important to me. I grew up in an orthodox LDS home and received my undergraduate degree at a BYU school. I am passionate about supporting those who have experienced spiritual or religious abuse or trauma. My lived experience and specialties include divorce, faith transitions, child birth trauma, LGBTQ+ issues (especially in relation to high demand religious trauma), multicultural issues, body image, body dysmorphia, and disordered eating, as well as coming of age issues related to human development.
