Individual, Couple and Family Therapy

I’m excited to announce that I’ve joined two practices and have started seeing clients locally, both in Salt Lake and UT Counties.  I see clients Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at Lakewood Family Therapy, in Taylorsville, UT at I-215 and Redwood Rd.  I see clients Fridays at ADDO Recovery, in Lindon, UT.  Check out their websites, and contact them for individual, couple, or family sessions with me.  I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you and/or your loved ones.

In addition to the issues commonly discussed here, if you know anyone with trauma of any kind (car accident, anxiety, phobias, veterans, PTSD, and even trauma and shame from addiction), send them my way.  I am one of only a few therapists in UT certified in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), which is an extremely rapid and effective method of treating trauma, as well as other things.

I am still running my online live courses, so if you are not local, please join a group and find lots of tools, hope and healing.

Determined to Rise

I am excited to announce that I will be speaking at an amazing women’s retreat in 2 weeks.  Determined to Rise hosts retreats for women who have suffered abuse, most commonly betrayal trauma.  It is a jam packed weekend of presentations on healing, recreational therapy, art therapy, yoga, and relaxation.  You can connect with women who have been there, and with resources to heal.  And best of all Determined to Rise does it very inexpensively!  For less than the price of a hotel room, you get everything you need to rejuvenate and move forward: meals, room and board, take homes, and all the activities mentioned above.  I’m honored to join this amazing team as the guest therapist presenter.  I hope to see you all there.  To get more information and register see their website here.  This year’s retreat is themed: Putting My Pieces Together, and I believe will feature a kintsugi art therapy activity.

UCAP St. George

UCAP St George is coming up in just a few weeks.  I’m so excited! There will be speakers and booths with wonderful information for addicts, betrayed spouses, parents who want to teach their children about healthy sexuality, etc.  I look forward to seeing you there!  Come see me at my booth for books, courses, and giveaways!

Accelerated Resolution Therapy

I recently became one of only a handful of therapists in Utah certified in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART).  I was so excited to be trained in this unique therapy with incredible results.  And I am so excited to tell you about it.

ART is a newer, revolutionary evidence-based treatment where clients see benefits and recovery much more rapidly than traditional therapies, usually within 1-5 sessions.  ART works to reprogram the way in which distressing images and memories are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions.  It allows clients to respond to their current reality without being triggered by past experiences.  Originally studied for use with trauma and depression, clients presenting with a wide range of distress have seen results including, but not limited to:

Anxiety, Family Issues, Phobias, OCD, Addictions, Performance Anxiety, Victimization/Poor Self Image, Sexual Abuse, Infidelity, Codependency, Grief, Job Related Stress, Pain Management, and Memory Enhancement.

If you are in Utah and are interested in scheduling ART sessions with me, go to the Contact Me tab.

Watch My UCAP 2019 Presentation

My presentation at UCAP’s 2019 Conference is now available on their website to watch, along with several other wonderful presentations.  Check it out here!

Disclaimer: The explanatory blurb includes more than I cover.  I had to cut the presentation down because I had too much I wanted to discuss and not enough time!  If you want more, it’s all covered in my courses, check them out on the courses tab.

I’m also excited about two podcasts I’ve recently recorded, one on sexual addiction, and one on talking to your kids about healthy sexuality.  Stay tuned, they should be out next month!

Addressing Pornography

Note: This post contains religious content from The Church of Jesus Christ, to which I ascribe.  Take what you like and leave the rest.

I have been derelict in posting about the newer website put out by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, entitled Addressing Pornography.  I had the opportunity to assist in writing content for parts of this site.  While you may not agree with every word posted, there are some wonderful resources here for those who struggle with porn use, for betrayed spouses, and for parents seeking to protect their children.  I highly recommend checking it out and exploring what content connects with you.

UCAP 2019 Review

The annual Utah Coalition Against Pornography Conference was wonderful!  I loved the opportunity to interact with wonderful parents looking for more resources to help their children have a strong and healthy sexual foundation.  I was also grateful that UCAP gave me

Come to UCAP 2019

Come visit me at UCAP—the Utah Coalition Against Pornography.  It’s the largest conference of its kind in the U.S.  This year it is on February 22, at the Salt Palace, in SLC.  This conference has topics for everyone including those struggling with pornography, to betrayed spouses, to parents looking to protect children, to teens and young adults.  See their website for details and registration.

This year is exciting because I have been asked to speak on Betrayal Trauma!

As usual, I will also have a booth at the conference for my book that helps parents teach their children about healthy sexuality.  And I will be promoting course information on my new online live courses for betrayal trauma and for parents teaching children.

I hope to see you there!
