Lana Wimmer, ACMHC
I love creating safe spaces that put clients at ease and working collaboratively to attend to their concerns. Whether clients face a personal loss, trauma, betrayal, addiction, anxiety, depression, life change, or other issues, I take a holistic approach, looking at the biophysical socio-environmental factors that affect their well-being. I believe that as we approach life with curiosity, rather than fear and avoidance, we invite thoughts and feelings into our awareness that will lead to change.
I realize that not everyone is the same, so I work with individuals and couples using a range of healing modalities, including Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal Theory, Lifespan Integration, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I’ve also trained in both Gottman level 1-2 and The Seven Principles that Make Marriage Work in order to provide couples with assessments, education, and therapy methods that have been thoroughly researched and proven successful.
My educational background includes a BS in Family Science from Brigham Young University and a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Utah. I’ve also trained at the Stockholm School of Realistic Art in Sweden and occasionally use artwork to facilitate and deepen insights and understanding.
About myself… I’ve been married for nearly 30 years, and together with my husband, lived in 6 different countries while raising our four children. I published the book, “Unpack, A Guide to Life As an Expat Spouse,” in 2017 and continue to enjoy writing and contributing to online blogs and websites. I love St. George, hiking in the red rock, and painting the beautiful landscapes of our surroundings.
