Behavioral Health Consultant, Licensed Therapist
I have years of experience providing mental health and addictions-related counseling services to adolescents, adults, and elders in a variety of inpatient, residential, and outpatient settings. In addition to my clinical experience, I have provided consultation and training to a variety of groups and organizations. I believe that my patient centered treatment experience has helped me to stay current with emerging best practices and enables me to match evidence-based interventions to the specific issues my clients are facing.
I am dually licensed in Nevada and Utah. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Weber State University and Master’s degree In Social Work from the University of Utah.
While I am trained in a variety of treatment modalities, the actual counseling approach I use with a given client is determined by that client’s preferences and personal goals, as well as the nature of the issue being addressed. Any approach I use will incorporate a strengths-based, client-centered focus that seeks to enhance the client’s level of motivation for personal growth and change. My areas of expertise include behavioral disorders, anxiety, addiction, co-occurring mental health and substance abuse problems, relationship issues, anger management, and attention deficit disorder. I would be happy to speak with you about how I can be of assistance in dealing with the issues you may be facing
