I started my career as a therapist in 2016 upon graduating from Utah State University. I began my training in exposure and response prevention in 2018 and discovered a passion for treating obsessive-compulsive related disorders and anxiety disorders. These disorders can take away an individual’s ability to make their own choices and fully participate in life. You may find yourself avoiding situations, stuck in your head, or engaging in behaviors because you feel like you have to, not because you actually want to. This often creates disruptions in areas such as relationships, school, work, and home.
By teaching individuals how to use exposure with response prevention, I have seen people be able to make their own decisions and get back to what really matters in life. I believe in empowering my clients to have the tools they need to manage their mental health independently. I want to help you to not just survive, but build a life worth living. I am an LGBTQIA+ ally and polyamorous friendly.
I have worked in the mental health field since 2014. I received my Master of Social Work at Utah Valley University. My experiences in this field have helped me to recognize the many unique challenges that individuals face at each stage of life. Through my work with children and families, I’ve been able to see the connectedness we all share with one another. I enjoy working with young children and their parents, as well as adults. When I work with clients, I seek to provide them a space in which they feel seen, heard, and cared for.
I first began working with OCD and anxiety related disorders in 2018. These disorders often take something that is valuable to the individual and use it to hold them hostage; often little things turn into big threats. Something that used to feel easy can feel terrifying. These disorders are tricky and seek to take away your freedom. They convince you to trade in your life for a perceived sense of safety. The sad thing is that these disorders are never satisfied, they will keep asking for more and more of you. Likely if you are reading this, you have experienced or witnessed this in a loved one firsthand. My goal is to help you gain freedom from these disorders. I want to stop OCD and related disorders from making your decisions. Instead, my hope is for you to have the skills needed to take control of your life and engage in the activities that you value. Changing patterns and facing fears is never easy, but my hope is that regaining your freedom and life will make it worth it.
