Because of my deep love for people, I cannot think of a greater reward than to serve others by helping to minimize human suffering. Walking with someone on their journey in overcoming life’s challenges is one of the greatest privileges another can venture on. I believe in the potential of each individual in achieving their goals and the best life possible.

Some of the modalities that resonate with me are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered, Solution-Focused, and EMDR. I believe in offering clients the latest research and highest quality of care that will support their goals. I believe that optimal well-being is often a wholistic approach that encompasses multiple factors of an individual’s life. For example, because of my training from The School of Natural Healing, I can offer clients education on alternative options to improve physical health that may be impacting mental health.

I have a bachelors in Marriage and Family Studies from BYUI, a masters from the School of Natural Healing, a certification from The National Guild of Hypnotists, additional certifications in The Body/Emotion Code, and am currently working to earn a second masters from Liberty University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Some of my greatest experience has come from being a wife of 25 years, mother of six, and a grandmother to one, I understand the complexities that can unfold in life.

As Lao Tsu once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step”, I would be most honored to support you in a warm and compassionate environment as you take this step.
