I'm so happy you found me! Have fun perusing my wesite and getting to know a little about me. Whether you are looking for a therapist for yourself, a friend, or a child, I hope you will find what you are looking for here.

A little bit about me...

I'm a midwestern girl at heart that relocated to Utah 24 years ago to attend Utah State University. I completed my bachelors degree in Psychology in 2001. After taking some time off to start a family with my husband I returned to  school in 2006 and completed my Master of Science in Counseling from the University of Phoenix in 2009.  It was during my internship that I realized that I enjoyed working with children, teens, and their families. In 2012 I earned my Registered Play Therapy Certificate. I am currently the only therapist in Cache Valley that can boast this specific training certificate.  In 2013, I was asked to join the board for the Utah Associate for Play Therapy were I have been happily serving since. Most recently I became a Certified EMDR therapist and a CIT (Consultant In Training). Meaning I also help other therapist to become certified in EMDR. I have been in private practice for 13 years now. I have worked with various populations since finishing school but would consider myself best at working with individuals, children, teens, and families. 

When I'm not at work I can be found enjoying time with my family or enjoying various forms of exercise such as triathlons, road biking, and group fitness classes. I enjoy a challenge and I am always creating new goals for myself personally and professionally.
