I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho with a BS in Psychology in 2005 and University of Phoenix with a Master of Counseling MSC/SC in 2009. For the last 12 years, I have worked with juvenile offenders in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th 7th, & 8th District Juvenile Court, families going through divorce, co-parent coordination, processing addiction, individuals with depression and anxiety, trauma processing, and marriage/relationship and family/individual counseling. My mediation firm specializes in mediation, divorce, custody modification, parent coordination, parenting and financial plans, co-parent education, and provides marriage and family system coaching services. I was trained in basic and domestic mediation through UDR in 2016 and I am a certified Utah Court Roster Mediator.
My focus when working with individuals, partners in a relationship, and families going through tough times like a divorce, separation, conflict in the home and their lives, etc. is to heal the individual so that everyone, including the children/partner/family members can thrive after conflict in the home versus just surviving. I use education, research, and my years of being a child of divorce, experience counseling others through addiction, abuse, and conflict within families; to help everyone involved to move forward and truly heal.
Mediation I, as an Utah Court Roster Mediator, assists co-parents in the negotiation process in a neutral and impartial manner to help both parties reach a settlement of one or more issues in a pending legal action. I provide a peaceful place for both parties the opportunity to creatively design their own resolution and avoid the economic and emotional costs of litigation and trial.
Individual, Marriage/Relationship and Family System Counseling is a unique form of counseling that focuses on learning educational skills and working with the whole family system on teaching emotionally healthy skills, depression and anxiety managing skills, relationship skills, communication, resolving conflict, processing through trauma, and working with children to create peace and success in their personal and family relationships.
Parent Coordination is a service offered by me to aid in communication between co-parents, facilitate the creation and/or implementation of a parenting plan, and assist towards a resolution of their disputes in a timely manner, and by educating parents based on the needs of their children.
You are welcome to contact me for more information & I hope to work with you in the future.
