Counseling (aka: psychotherapy or therapy)

The practice of mental health therapy (or counseling) is to prevent or treat mental illness (Mental Health Professional Practice Act, 2023; Social Work Licensing Act, 2023). The treatment process includes:

  1. Conducting a professional evaluation of an individual’s mental health
  2. Establishing a diagnosis and/or treatment target
  3. Prescribing a plan to prevent or treat the identified condition
  4. Providing treatment


I have experience treating several conditions (listed below).

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depressive disorders
  • Obsessive compulsive and related disorders
  • Adjustment disorders related to life transitions
  • Grief
  • Relationship challenges
  • Stress

Age groups

I serve the following age groups:

  • Youth (ages 9-17)
  • Adults (18 and above)

Service formats

Services formats include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Couples therapy
  • Family therapy

Services are offered either:

  • In-person (Provo Office)
  • Online for residents in Utah, New York, or Missouri

Some people don’t need therapy and would benefit from receiving coaching services instead (see the Coaching services page for details)

Session frequency, length, and duration

The frequency of sessions, length of each session, and the duration of treatment vary by condition, complexity, and severity. I will discuss various options with you after the assessment when we co-develop your treatment plan about what would work best for you.

Typically, new clients start with weekly sessions. The default session length is 50 minutes. Duration is based on speed of improvement.
