I am the owner and clinical director for Mindset Family Therapy in Provo, Utah. For nearly 20 years, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with anxiety disorders, behavioral and family issues. I began my private practice to better serve the community in response to the lack of local specialized expertise. I have experienced overwhelming success in treating OCD, OC spectrum disorders, and other anxiety disorders.

With so many people in need, I have expanded the clinic, passed on my knowledge, and have trained a team who now carry the torch. We have an amazing team of therapists, who additionally bring experience and specialties of their own. They are committed to helping community members with their mental and emotional needs.

Master of Social Work - Brigham Young University

Bachelor of Science - Utah Valley University

Presenter, International OCD Foundation Annual Conference | Member, IOCD Foundation

Interacting with clients in therapy is a great passion of mine as I have seen how clinical techniques can truly help someone change for the better. I especially enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with anxiety disorders, behavior, and family issues. I’ve had recent success treating clients with OCD using ACT and other evidenced-based treatments.

Techniques learned during therapy sessions are then given as homework assignments to be put into practice in the client’s daily lives. This is where the magic begins as clients see that they can have a more positive reaction to life’s daily challenges. I have come to appreciate that each client I work with is a unique individual with talents and skills to resolve their own struggles. It is my privilege to be a help agent on their road to good mental health.

Presenter, International OCD Foundation Annual Conference | Member, IOCD Foundation | Yoga and Mindfulness Instructor | RadKIDS Instructor | Creator of Be The Story Yoga, a children’s yoga DVD

Helping clients break free from self-defeating patterns that hold them back is my passion. Using the powerful principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), I work with individuals of all ages to develop skills of awareness and acceptance of distressing thoughts and feelings. With compassion and nonjudgment, I encourage clients to move past controlling and/or avoiding that which they fear, and shift their focus back to the work of creating a rich and meaningful life.
