More About Me

All of my adult life, I have made a conscious effort to steer my career away from professions that focus merely 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, especially for teens and young adults. 


I have been working in the social work field for almost 20 years, and have worked with 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 received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2009. I just received my Master’s of Social Work at the University of Utah. I am excited to learn and grow my skills as we work through your challenges together. 

In my spare time, I enjoy baking, watching horror movies, and copiously celebrating holidays.
