I was born and raised in Ogden, Utah, and currently reside in Roy. I am a mother of 5 children and a grandmother of 11. I returned to Weber State University shortly after the death of my spouse and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Social Work and a Minor in Child and Family Studies. I attended graduate school at the University of Utah and obtained my Masters of Social Work in 2011. It has been a privilege to work in the field of social work for 20 years. At present, I am practicing as a psychotherapist. I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents helping them cope in a healthy manner with life stressors/difficult life transitions including trauma, separation, divorce, chronic/terminal illnesses, and death. I promote mindfulness and expand on existing strengths using evidence-based interventions whenever possible.
It is my belief that every human soul has the need to be recognized, valued, and understood. As an experienced child and family therapist, I am committed to assisting you to rid your current relationships from conflict, pain, and frustration. I provide a safe, therapeutic environment where those suffering from emotional and behavioral issues, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, past trauma, and abuse can find their own strengths and solutions.
I Believe You Matter
You are a person of worth that deserves to be heard and validated. Therapy is a two-way process where therapist and clients work together to find solutions to problems you have seen in the past through empathy, emotional support, connections, and motivation.
It would be an honor for me to be included in your circle of healing and provide you with the support necessary to love, learn, change, and grow. I believe in you. take action today.
