Professional Statement

I received a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy from Iowa State University (`04), MS in MFT from Purdue Calumet (`98), and BS in Psychology from BYU (`94). I am the owner of Progressive Paths Therapy, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Utah.
I work with individuals, couples, families, and do group therapy. I strive to have my work research-informed, best practices informed, highest ethical quality. I specialize in: Mormon faith crises transitions and/or expansions for individuals and couples, social justice-informed therapy (addressing discrimination and systemic oppression of minoritized groups and individuals around race, gender, sexual orientation, class, ability, power/privilege, etc.), couples and marriage therapy, sex therapy for couples, premarital therapy, out of control or problematic sexual behavior for individuals and couples, healing from trauma/abuse, promoting adult growth & development, and family therapy. I am a member of the LGBTQ Affirmative Therapists Guild of Utah and a Board Member of Encircle Therapy. I am an AAMFT Approved Supervisor, AAMFT member, and UAMFT member. I am the past-president of the Mormon Mental Health Association. In my work I utilize: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, mindfulness practices, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Differentiation of Self, and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I’ve been working as a therapist since 1998. I affirm the goodness, strengths, and wonder in each person and each relationship. I work to explore in depth the hopes and fears, the real challenges and possibilities, that individuals and relationships face in their life journeys. The joy and honor of my work is being a witness to the lives, relationships, stories, growth, hopes, and change of those who consult me.
