“Inside every child is a story needing to be told.” - D.W. Winnicott 

My approach to therapy is person-centered and filled with acceptance and understanding. I strive to create a safe and comfortable environment to share your thoughts and concerns. I utilize a number of approaches including CBT, play therapy, motivational interviewing, parent coaching and mindfulness practices. I am always eager to expand on my knowledge and stay current on updates within the mental health field. I want to partner with you to customize the journey to create a healthier and happier life for you and your family. 

 

I enjoy working with children and families going through challenges and transitions such as divorce, kinship placement, moving, and other life changes. Life disruptions are often accompanied with many overwhelming feelings and uncontrollable behaviors. We can work together to improve effective communication, develop healthy coping skills and increase personal strengths. I am familiar with trauma and behavioral challenges in young children both at home and school. I enjoy collaborating with parents and teachers to help them learn the tools to improve relationships and nurture the emotional and social development of young children. 

 

My experience encompasses a variety of different areas, including school-based mental health services, outpatient therapy, telehealth and in-home services. I work primarily with children and adolescents but have a history treating adults and senior citizens. I completed my Bachelors program in Social Work from Weber State University in 2016 and used that degree to be a case manager in the Ogden community for six years. Pursuing further education, I enrolled with the University of Kentucky and earned a Masters Degree in Social Work with a clinical focus. My graduate training included an internship working in a community mental health agency providing individual therapy and parenting groups for children and their families.

Personal Interests

Curiosity is a driving force in my life. I often satisfy this craving for knowledge through my love of reading. I believe storytelling is very personal and spotlights what we value most in our lives. My personal story includes my husband of 14 years, our two daughters, and our very vocal husky.
