KNOW YOUR THERAPIST

WHAT DID YOU GET YOUR DEGREE(S) IN AND WHERE FROM?

Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from BYU, Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology

SUMMARY OF PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

4th and 6th grade teacher for 4 years, in-home and office therapist at Hopeful Beginnings for almost 4 years, therapist at BlueTheory Counseling (private practice) for 1 1⁄2 years, St. John the
Baptist Middle School part-time counselor for 2 years

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A THERAPIST?

I’ve always been drawn to those who need help and support. What kept bothering me over and over again was not being able to help when friends or family members needed it. Now I love
seeing the growth in individuals and families now that they have the tools and skills to get them where they want to go. In the meantime, finding myself growing and healing in ways I couldn’t imagine from my own work and the inspiration of clients and coworkers makes me want to stay and learn even more

WHATS YOUR THERAPEUTIC APPROACH?

Client based therapy

WHAT KIND OF HOMEWORK OR ASSIGNMENTS DO YOU GIVE CLIENTS?

I lean towards homework using cognitive work such as a gratitude journal or finding what you did well that day. Yet homework is based on what we discover and decide together.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST SESSION WITH YOU?

To prepare for a first session, it would be helpful to be vulnerable and honest even if that means you don’t feel like a homework assignment or an assessment fits. You know yourself better than I do.
