EMDRIA certified in EMDR Therapy
Welcome to Park City Counseling. People seek counseling for a variety of reasons- often because they feel “stuck” in a painful pattern they want to change. Therapy can help you maintain wellness, manage health challenges or the effects of chronic stress. My aim is to help you sustain vibrancy in your life and relationships by overcoming symptoms and stressors that distract from happy, healthy living. Common issues for therapy are related to depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, addictions, grief and loss, and adjustment to life transitions such as physical illness, marriage, parenthood, miscarriage, divorce, and separation. Therapy is a proven method of relief and offers an opportunity for deep personal insight and growth. At Park City Counseling, I work with adults and couples aspiring to live, love and thrive.
As a clinical mental health counselor, I work in a collaborative and creative way to help clients achieve balance and remove roadblocks to joy. In addition to talk therapy, I have specialized training in EMDR therapy. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy and is a leading treatment for trauma recovery. Events such as sexual and physical abuse, combat experience, medical emergencies, environmental disasters and sudden loss are likely to be traumatic with a capital “T” but it doesn’t have to be a major trauma to be impacting your self worth and confidence. Many of my clients are reprocessing hurtful early life experiences that stand in the way of experiencing joy in the present. The brain’s capacity to heal itself is extraordinary, leaving you with increased confidence and peace of mind.
Counseling can help you navigate through a crisis or revitalize fondness and admiration. In couples’ therapy, I use research-based methods to help you manage conflict compassionately, deepen your friendship and intimacy, and strengthen life purpose and dreams. Sometimes a relationship must end for a new one to begin - often with the same person. Relationship difficulties are distressing. The good news is that in many cases, you can grow together with a little coaching. We can clarify the issues, fine tune communication and develop a plan to move toward a more rewarding relationship.
For individuals, therapy can help you maintain wellness or find relief. I am trained in evidenced-based cognitive behavior therapy and trauma recovery interventions. Sometimes, we need coaching or counsel to move through change or to tolerate stress and loss. In therapy, I look for strengths and build upon the client’s own courage and resilience. At times, therapy can be difficult and bring up a range of emotions not felt everyday. Bringing resolve to the issues or discomfort supports a healthy connection between mind and body.
Find relief and rediscover the life you want to live.
Therapists often find that engaging in their own therapy leads to deeper, more profound work with their clients. We may become conditioned to put the needs of others first and self care may be overlooked. Training in EMDR therapy, while powerful and enlightening, can also bring past issues to the forefront, even for seasoned clinicians. Here you will find a respectful, supportive environment to explore your potential.

Finding the right therapist is essential and building a therapeutic relationship is a process. Our first session is called an assessment and is the foundation for personalized treatment. We will review your history and establish where in your current life, you would like to see changes. We will create a plan for movement towards your goals using an integrative, holistic approach. Most people begin therapy with weekly or bi-weekly sessions and are always free to choose the frequency that best meets their needs. You can expect a safe, secure and confidential environment.
