When I first meet with clients I present them with a metaphor: all through our lives we carry around a backpack with our metaphorical baggage. Therapy is an ideal time to unpack your backpack together with someone else who can witness the weight that you have been carrying around with you. Together with your therapist, you can begin to look at what you have been carrying and find new ways to carry the weight to make the backpack less heavy. I am frequently amazed by the clients I meet who survive incredibly hard life circumstances and experiences of marginalization, and I feel honored to be a part of the therapeutic process of helping clients to access their own inner strength and resiliency. While I believe it is always important to honor the healing patterns we have each developed to help us to survive, there may come a time when it becomes important to break these patterns to develop new ways of coping with distress. I have training in multiple therapy modalities and am able to tailor therapy to each of the clients I see, however, some of the most common therapeutic interventions I use are: Feminist Multicultural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I would be honored to help you unpack your backpack together with me in my office.
I have a master’s degree as well as a doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Utah where I graduated with a special proficiency in trauma counseling. My research and counseling interests connect to topics of social justice and broadly explores how experiences of marginalization and oppression impact one’s mental health. My doctoral dissertation is a study working with Latter-day Saint survivors of childhood sexual abuse to understand their healing processes. My research has greatly impacted my therapeutic work and I continue today to stay connected to research to provide my clients with current evidence-based therapeutic interventions. When I’m not working, I enjoy binge-watching Parks and Recreation and going on hikes around Utah with my partner, my two human babies, and my two dog babies.
Meets with clients in Provo
I was born and raised in northern Minnesota and have lived in Idaho, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and now Utah. I earned my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at the University of Southern Mississippi in 2018. While attending school in Mississippi, I worked with individuals, couples, and families from unique backgrounds including diverse race/ ethnicities, LGBTQ+, Autism Spectrum Disorders, mental and physical disabilities, and various religious backgrounds. I am currently working toward a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy at Brigham Young University where my research is focusing on how natural disasters impact families. As a clinician, my goal is to help clients achieve harmony in themselves and find peace where there might be internal and/or external conflict. My approach often includes an element of play, to help clients have new emotional experiences. My partner Evan and I have been married for 11 years and are raising our sweet son Dax, our dachshund mix Pepper, and our ornate wood turtle Gamera. We enjoy going to parks, going on walks, and catching all the Pokémon.

Meets with clients in Provo
I hail from the Buckeye Nation--also known as Ohio. I am a graduate of Colorado State University where I earned my MSW. I have been working as a therapist with teens, young adults, and their families since 2001. I first started as a wilderness therapist and currently work with teenagers in a residential treatment center. I am well-versed in working with trauma, attachment, anxiety & depression, and family conflict. I have been trained in DBT and DBT skills--over 60 hours. In addition, I have been trained and use EMDR to address trauma with my clients. I have training in sand tray, writing therapy, and psycho-drama and use these expressive therapies to help my clients connect and heal.
Fundamentally, I find that everyone I work with feels a bit lost and unsure how to make their way and wondering if a way is possible for them. Having spent a lot of time in the woods and in particular being lost, I know that people can and do find their way. I know from my own journey and the journey of my LGBTQ clients that there is a place to find shelter, connection, and light. I firmly believe that we are here to answer the question that Mary Oliver has asked, "What will you do with your one wild and precious life?" I love watching my clients find their answer and living a life that is full of goodness and love. When I am not sitting in a therapy office, I love reading, writing, walking, being with my dog Attie, and laughing with those I love.

I am a CA native and a graduate from the University of Utah Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. I am a firm believer in the affirmative care for all LGBTQ+ individuals and families. A key part of reducing negative mental health symptoms is building better connections with others who can love you unconditionally and I want to help you keep those existing important connections in your life. Doing couples and family work is something I really enjoy doing if you feel brave enough to bring in the whole family. Understanding yourself between the intersections of gender identity, sexual orientation, family, traditions and religion is tricky and hard to navigate but I am here to help you explore what works best for you in your personal situation. My professional career involves experience working individuals with autism, sexual behavior issues, working with families and individuals in crisis and working for DCFS. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling the world with my partner David and raising our energetic and loving Doberman Roxi.

Lisa meets with clients in Provo
I was born and raised an hour north of San Francisco, California until I was 12 years-old, when my family relocated to Highland, Utah. I have also lived in Ketchikan, Alaska while working as a tour guide and in the deserts of Arizona while working as a wilderness therapy guide. I am the youngest of five children, and love my family very much.
I received my B.S. in Psychology from Brigham Young University and am currently in my third year of their Counseling Psychology Ph.D. Program. My research, clinical and teaching interests all relate to topics of systematic oppression. My dissertation topic is the impact of therapist racism on client outcomes.
I am happiest when I am in nature, feeling connected to something bigger than myself. The sense of awe that I feel when I look at the night sky or sit on top of a mountain is very important to me in my life, and I continue to seek it out. My hope is that everyone can feel connected and in awe when they ponder their existence. I believe that at times this becomes difficult to feel, and that this is often when we need the support of therapy. I believe that I am a “fellow traveler” with my clients, and that so many of the answers to our problems are inside of us, but at times we need a partner in that discovery process, and that’s where I come in. Some of the therapeutic orientations that impact my practice include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Feminist and Multicultural Therapy and Existential Therapy.
