The human mind is fascinating and holds the capacity to create healing and wellness for the soul. I believe in methods of self-acceptance while working toward growth and change. It is also important to discover the unhealthy patterns and behaviors that hinder us from moving forward. Life is messy. Mental health is complex. Relationships can be complicated. But, restoring hope is always possible.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am trained to help my clients explore their relationships and discover how to create healthier connections. I have trained using emotionally-focused techniques with couples and individuals, healing from trauma. I have a passion for working with couples and families and want to help them strengthen their bond. I have worked extensively with youth groups in developing resilience and healthy coping skills as they work through anxiety and depression.
I feel fortunate to call the red mountains of Southern Utah my home and I am inspired by the beauty surrounding me. I have been married for nearly 30 years and am a proud mother of four beautiful boys and one daughter-in-law. Being a grandma is the icing on the cake. I love to cook and create in the kitchen, and I plan all vacations around hiking because the mountains are always calling.
Albert Einstein once said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.”
My experiences have led me on a path to a better understanding of myself, and an ability to hold compassion for others as we all journey through life together.
