Education: Master of Social Work, University of Utah, 2020. Experience: I interned at University Neighborhood Partners assisting people of refugee background with navigating systems. My second internship was at Primary Children’s Hospital in both outpatient and inpatient health clinics. I would assess patient needs, connecting to resources, and providing brief therapy interventions. Most recently I was at Alpine Pediatrics providing outpatient therapy for children with a wide range of mental health needs.
Therapeutic Approach: I believe that everyone has strengths unique to them that they utilize to navigate their world. Therapy is a helpful tool to enable people to start recognizing the strengths that they have in order to feel empowered to direct their lives, as well as a space to start identifying what beliefs they may have that could be preventing them from achieving their goals.
I aspire to make a respectful space in therapy where clients feel valued as we work through understanding thoughts and beliefs about themself and their environment. I like to utilize a wide variety of therapeutic techniques to best help the client including cognitive behavioral therapy, strengths based, dialectical behavioral therapy, and mindfulness. Therapy can be challenging and uncomfortable as we work through things. I am to create a therapeutic alliance where we can discuss those things to help client’s find clarity in their lives.
About Me: My childhood years were spent in Georgia and Ohio and my high school and college years have been in Utah. I love sunshine, reading, exercising, spending time with friends and family, traveling, and trying new ice cream places.
