More About Me

I have always made a conscious effort to steer my career away from professions that focus solely on monetary goals. I decided to become a therapist because I find fulfillment in helping others find peace and happiness however that may look for them. I am a huge proponent of self-determination and specialize in helping teens and young adults find their voice and path in the world. 


I have worked in the social work field for almost 20 years, and have helped those experiencing domestic violence, substance abuse, postpartum depression, and child welfare involvement. I have spent a large portion of my career working with children and teenagers who struggle with mental health issues, from depression and anxiety to major family conflicts, substance abuse, and criminal activity. 

I am passionate about guiding couples, families, and co-parents through the difficulties that arise in relationships and while raising children. My personal journey and professional experiences allow me to provide helpful insight and movement toward peace and compromise. 


I received a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters of Social Work from the University of Utah. In my spare time, I enjoy baking, watching horror movies, and copiously celebrating holidays.
