After obtaining a B.F.A. in Modern Dance at the University of Utah, followed by completing extensive teacher training and certification at The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, I decided to pursue a M.A. in Counseling Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I then worked for many years in private practice with diverse populations including individuals, children, couples, domestic violence perpetrators and survivors and obtained licensure in Utah as a MFT in 2014.
I transitioned to working with adults with substance dependence and mental wellness concerns and have done so since 2014. I have been able to work in various roles, including as a primary therapist, supervisor and director throughout residential, intensive outpatient and outpatient treatment. At the end of 2016, I accepted employment with a start-up company, developing protocols for intensive outpatient treatment facilities, followed by a transition back to private practice. I specialize in dual diagnoses, have completed EMDR basic training as well as recent completion of coursework at CIIS in their certificate program for Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapies and Research.
How I work with clients
I realize there is no single approach to treatment of human beings and as such, I enjoy engaging in creative exploration and collaboration with patients in order to assist them in finding their own inner healers. I am passionate about assisting others on their pathways toward wellness through an integrative, depth psychological lens.
