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 all the factors – biological, social, environmental – that affect their well-being. As we approach therapy with curiosity we’ll invite new thoughts and perspectives into awareness to create needed change.
I work with individuals and couples using a range of healing modalities, including Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal Theory, Lifespan Integration, Mindfulness, and (AEDP) Affective Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. I’ve also trained extensively in both Gottman Method and Emotion-Focused Therapy to provide couples with assessments, education, and techniques that have been thoroughly researched and proven successful.
I graduated with honors from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s in Family Science and a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Utah, giving me a solid educational foundation to support my work.
Beyond academia, I’ve gained invaluable experience having been married for 30 years, and raising four children while living in six different countries. This unique life journey has provided me with invaluable insights and empathy as I help others navigate their life challenges. In 2017 I published the book, “Unpack, A Guide to Life As an Expat Spouse.” I love living in St. George, hiking in the red rock, and painting the beautiful landscapes of our surroundings.
