I firmly believe that every individual has an inherent ability for self-healing and personal growth. This innate wisdom often becomes obscured or forgotten due to the challenges and complexities of life. During these moments, we might require some guidance to reconnect with our innate capacity for healing and wholeness. As a psychotherapist, I consider it not just my responsibility but also a profound honor to assist you in accessing this reservoir of inner wisdom, helping you navigate your emotional landscape with enhanced awareness and understanding.

Our collaborative journey will commence with an environment steeped in curiosity, openness, and a mutual eagerness for discovery. I am committed to helping you explore the depths of who you are in your most authentic form, devoid of societal expectations or self-imposed limitations. This path often necessitates walking through emotional terrains fraught with pain, grief, and unresolved traumas. It's essential to understand that these challenging experiences are not roadblocks but stepping stones to greater self-discovery and emotional well-being.

It is a profound privilege to accompany you on this transformative journey, serving as a supportive guide as you confront, understand, and eventually integrate these complex emotional states into a more holistic understanding of yourself. Together, we'll work toward not just symptom relief but also a richer, fuller understanding of who you are, empowering you to embrace the complexity of your humanity with greater resilience and compassion.

Individual Therapy: We provide personalized Individual Therapy that utilizes proven therapeutic models to foster mindfulness, new perspectives, and meaningful change across various conditions and life challenges. Our approach emphasizes understanding the root of struggles rather than temporary solutions, guiding clients to lasting improvements.

Couple and Family Therapy: Our Couple and Family Therapy service recognize relationships as vital for healing and growth, using techniques like Internal Family Systems and Emotionally Focused Therapy to enhance attachment, resolve conflicts, and address the complex dynamics within families and couples. We tailor our approach to meet the unique needs of each relationship, whether blended families, intimate partnerships, or other relational configurations.

Sex Therapy: Oak Branch Counseling's Sex Therapy service addresses various sexual challenges, from dysfunction and desire imbalances to the impacts of cultural, religious, or familial views on sexual expression. With specialized training and a collaborative approach, we strive to create a safe space for healing, exploration, and the establishment of healthy sexual boundaries.

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy: We offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), integrating low doses of ketamine with psychotherapy for treatment-resistant conditions like depression and anxiety. Our carefully curated settings, expert guidance, and integration enable profound healing experiences and transformative growth.

Our Story

My professional journey initially began in software development, a career that, over time, left me longing for a more profound impact on the lives of others. This longing catalyzed a change, leading me to earn an undergraduate degree in psychology and, subsequently, a Master's degree in mental health counseling.

Now, as a psychotherapist based in Salt Lake City, Utah, I help guide couples and individuals through a myriad of life challenges, including relationship issues, sexual concerns, and faith transitions. I have extensive training in sexuality and hold a certificate in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, which aligns with my belief in the importance of innovative therapeutic approaches.

Having gained significant experience and insights in a group practice, I felt compelled to venture into private practice and build a team of talented and like-minded clinicians. This aspiration led to the inception of Oak Branch Counseling as a collaborative space for other dedicated therapists. Our collective goal is to provide comprehensive, specialized support to cater to the diverse needs of our clients.

What We Do

We offer specialized therapy for various needs. Our professional and empathetic therapists are trained in diverse therapeutic approaches to support your journey toward mental wellness. The range of our specializations includes:

  • Anxiety and Depression Therapy: We provide a safe, supportive environment to help you navigate complex emotions, including anxiety and depression.

  • Men's and Women's Sexuality: Our therapists provide a secure, non-judgmental space to explore and address concerns related to sexuality, fostering an improved understanding of self and others.

  • Life Adjustments: Life can often bring about unexpected changes, and adjusting can be difficult. We offer therapy to help individuals navigate these challenges, empowering them to cope and adapt.

  • Faith Transitions: Navigating a shift or departure from religious beliefs can be emotionally challenging. We offer supportive counseling to facilitate your faith transition, focusing on maintaining your mental well-being, realigning with your values, and working individually and within your family and friend groups to nurture understanding and acceptance.

  • Couples and Relationship Struggles: Our team can help address and resolve issues you and your partner may face. We aim to enhance communication, resolve conflicts, and nurture a healthier relationship. We help clients create durable change, not just band-aid temporary fixes. We also work with various relationship formats, including CNM (consensual non-monogamy).

  • Sex Therapy: We provide a secure space for personal exploration, conflict resolution, and improvement of intimacy. We understand and experience various sexual experiences, including ED, PE, pain, libido, sexual drive, and compulsive behaviors. We understand the diversity of different "kinks" and are strong LGBTQ allies.

  • Ketamine-assisted Psychotherapy: This innovative therapy approach can potentially offer rapid and robust relief from conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Our therapists are not only trained to guide you through this process but also possess the necessary certification in the clinical use of innovative psychedelic medications that are becoming legally available in clinical settings. We understand the critical steps of integration and are committed to supporting you every step of the way. See our package program for KAP.
