As a practicing member of the church I understand the need for nuanced and open-minded mental health support. I am passionate about the LDS community and have experience working with clients on all ends of the religious spectrum. I regularly tell my clients that I am comfortable in the gray areas of the gospel and that we are free to explore their individual spiritual concerns, beliefs, and ideas when we work together.
I also believe in the importance of high quality care for people in the Mormon community. Too often I’ve heard clients fear that a therapist will be judgmental of their upbringing or participation in the church, or that they will be preached to and judged for their spiritual questions and concerns. I approach all clients with curiosity, as well as a familiarity with the jargon, culture, and idiosyncrasies of mormonism.
I have experience with clients who: are struggling to understand their own spirituality, are on a faith journey, have experienced religious trauma, who have left the church, who have decided to stay in the church, who are processing a family member leaving the church, who are in mixed-faith marriages, who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, who have a loved one or family member in the LGBTQ+ community, and more.
I also specialize in working with clients who are struggling with anxiety and depression or life transitions. I work with couples who are motivated to stay together, and I work with medical professionals and their family members.
Currently, I see all my clients via telehealth between the hours of 9am-noon pacific time.
If you feel that we may be a good fit please feel free to contact me for a free 15-minute consultation. If I am not the right fit for you, I will do everything I can to help connect you to someone who is.
I look forward to hearing from you!
