My philosophy when it comes to therapy

is to always create a safe place for clients to be their true authentic self, or to help them discover their true authentic self. I generally practice from a person-centered approach. I believe this approach allows the client to have the space to reflect, learn, work, grow, change, and to develop positive self-regard for themselves and others. I believe that by giving clients this space, it also gives them the opportunity to reach, and work toward their fullest potential.

Because every situation and every person is different, I also draw upon several other approaches including: - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy - Reality Therapy - Trauma Informed Therapy - Family Systems Therapy

I started my psychological career at a youth treatment facility after graduating from Brigham Young University (in Marriage and Family Studies) in 2011. I received my Masters Degree in School Counseling in 2014. I am still practicing as a School Counselor (this being my 9th-year) in the Jordan School District. And this last year, I began my Clinical Mental Health Certificate in hopes that I will be able to apply all my years of education in therapy with my clients.

It's my goal to help each client feel empathy, unconditional positive regard, authenticity, respect, and congruence in the therapeutic process. If we work together on these foundations above (Empathy, Non-Judgment, Authenticity, and Respect) I believe we will be able to create and build an effective individualized treatment plan just for you.
