I am a Trauma Transformation Specialist and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CMHC) currently residing with my family and practicing in Northern Utah. I founded my program as a counseling, coaching and consulting and speaking practice aimed at helping people get their life back on track through education, awareness, skills, and support .
Speaking to both small and large groups from 10 people to several thousand, from teaching to motivating, everyone leaves inspired with more than they started with. One of the strongest responses from audiences and group members is how the topics and speaker are engaging and humorous, yet connected with reality that brings forth a feeling that makes it feel like you are talking to a group of friends and growing together.
After going back to school for my Master’s Degree in counseling, life as I knew it was interrupted when my teenage daughter was brutally murdered by a peer. I was heartbroken and frightened as I tried to bring a sense of safety and control back into my world, tasting the bitter truth that control was a painful illusion and reality was not always fair. My healing came in waves as I redefined my life and rebuilt my view of the world. Through many tears and support from those I loved, I delved into the world of trauma and healing. I was determined that my life and the future of my family would not be defined by this tragedy. After years of practice and research, I actively treat a variety of clients including trauma recovery survivors with a strong focus of healing the trauma and bringing joy back into life where once all hope had been lost.
