People often experiencing depression say that they are feeling sad, overwhelmed, hopeless, and helpless.



Anxiety can affect all aspect of your life. We will work together on you being able to feel confident wherever you are and whatever your goals may be.

About me

Do you ever feel alone or overwhelmed with life? Do you ever think that there is no hope and that this must be as good as it gets? Since 2013 I have worked with people who often have frequently felt this way. I have had the opportunity to work with teenagers, college students, trauma survivors, adults, and couples. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I look forward to working with you as you may be struggling with your own personal feelings of depression or anxiety as well as concerns with your significant other.

Some techniques I'm trained in (but not all by far):

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Gottman Couples Therapy

Why 1st Degree of Change

Small changes can create large differences over time. A plane leaves Puerto Vallarta (Rocky Point) on a trip around the world, with the intention of landing where they started. However their instruments are off by 1 degree so by the time they have traveled around the world they actually end up in Utah.

At 1st Degree of Change we understand that everyone is in a different place. So we celebrate the small accomplishments while recognizing that those small goals can change your direction forever.



1st Session

The first session is blocked out for 80 mins so that we have time to ensure paperwork is filled out properly and most importantly have enough time to ensure we both have a clear understanding of your goals.


* first session can be 50 minutes if you feel that would be adequate for your needs however if session goes over then an additional charge will be billed


50 min sessions

Typical sessions are scheduled for 50 mins (both individual and couples) and typically allow plenty of time



80 min sessions

Sometimes it may be necessary to have longer sessions, which we can discuss together. This time allows for more conversation to get through problems.



Cancellation Policy

We require 24 hour notification. If you cancel within 24 hours you will be charged 100% of the session. But don't worry this rarely happens because you can be sick on your couch in your pajamas and still attend!

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.
