I believe that each person has in them the power to heal and grow. But often we are in environments or part of systems that prevent us from being our true selves. Therapy is a space that can open up opportunities for individuals to connect to their authentic self. I consider the impact of power in larger systems that influence each of our intersecting identities while also empowering each individual towards growth. I use primarily an ecosystemic lens within a multicultural framework while also working to provide specific skills and tools.

My name is Amy and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in Utah, with four years of experience in counseling. Prior to my counseling career change, I worked in education as a professor of mathematics education, helping elementary teachers improve their mathematics teaching skills. I will always love and value the education field, and I love my counseling career even more! I have worked with clients from all ages, backgrounds, and areas of concern- substance abuse and addiction, trauma/abuse, depression, anxiety, LGBTQ issues, relationship concerns, career concerns, family relationship issues, and more.
My counseling style is very client-centered; my priority is to meet clients where they are and use a collaborative approach to treatment planning, goal setting, and choosing counseling modalities that work best for the client. My most often used modalities include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Motivational Interviewing (MI); Solution-Focused Therapy; and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR); among others. I focus on identifying clients' strengths while also identifying the areas of their lives they are hoping to improve, and then collaborate with clients to utilize the treatment modality that will best intertwine those strengths with their goals.

It takes great courage and humility to reach out to a counselor for help, and I am continually inspired to work with clients as they move toward their "best lives." I would be honored to work with YOU!
