Introduction:
In July 2009, I opened my clinic. I am ten minutes from my home and I can be accessible to my clients quickly and in an emergency. I serve my local community in Salt Lake City, Midvale, Sandy and Cottonwood Heights, Utah. I am also available through my website and I have included many links to other mental health services.

In 2000, I began attending classes to work towards my Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling (MMHC). In 2003, I was awarded the MMHC and began my internship to become fully licensed. I interned at the State of Utah and earned  the hours needed to become fully licensed. I became licensed on 12/07/07. During this time, I was employed by the State of Utah as a Family Preservation therapist. My services were court ordered. I met with clients and families in their homes and with juveniles in detention and with adults and children who were under court supervision. I worked with community partners to provide my clients with support and services. I became fully licensed on December 7, 2007. In order to maintain my license, I must take 40 hours of continuing education every two years.

I believe that psychotherapy and counseling services should be available to everyone who needs them. High fees should not be a barrier to counseling services. I am a member of many insurance panels, and I will create payment plans for regular clients. Unfortunately, my insurance coverage does not allow home visits.

I have worked with adult children to support their caregiving responsibilities with aging parents. As a kidney transplant recipient, I have a unique knowledge of the challenges of long term illness and its after effects. Even if your concerns are beyond the scope of my practice, I will do my best to refer you to a clinician who can help.
