Who I am & What I do

About Me

For years I played it safe working in the corporate world and plugging away at obtaining a degree. When I took the risk of changing directions, it was as exciting as it was scary! Now, all these years later, I look back on my journey and realize that every step has led me to this moment in time. As I began to specialize in sexual addiction and betrayal trauma in my private practice, I realized that there was a far greater need than I could meet on my own.

I wanted to begin to train other gifted therapists how to help in this area. So, I stepped into a partnership and we began TherapyUtah with the simple belief that we would provide the highest level of care to our clients and the best environment for our staff to provide that care.

Purchasing a Cereset franchise was not a planned partnership. However, when I saw first-hand the changes the Cereset technology brought to individual lives, I knew I wanted to be able to provide the technology to my community in Lehi, Utah. It has been incredible to watch individuals that have struggled with insomnia, mood swings, anxiety, PTSD, Long-Term Covid symptoms gain relief.

Healful is my latest partnership and, an added bonus, it is with my son! Jake is a well-known videographer. We had long conversations about the rising need for individuals, families, employees and employers to have better access to expert mental health advice. So, he gathered the experts he knows in video production and I gathered the experts I know in the mental health field and Healful was born!

I love being a part of my fellow traveler’s journey. My hope is that I can provide a place of safety, a place of learning and a place of healing.

Kathy was the most integral piece of my healing during addiction, betrayal trauma and divorce from my spouse. I went through all the textbook stages of grief, and she met me with grace at each one. I shifted from a victim mindset, sleepless nights, desperation and severe depression to radical responsibility and courage as her effective tools empowered me. I now live a healthy, balanced and successful life as I help others in similar transitions. I couldn’t have made it without her. I still reflect on her tools and the meticulous notes I kept to stay grounded. Forever grateful for Kathy and her skills, time, and hope.

Kathy helped me navigate one of the darkest times of my life. She didn't always tell me what I wanted to hear, but taught me what I needed to know to progress. I'll be forever grateful.

Kathy is a very experienced clinician and CSAT supervisor who has taught me so much about addiction and betrayal trauma. I’ve especially been impressed with the way she uses internal family systems to help clients integrate the parts of themselves that have helped them survive by inviting them to speak! I find myself quoting Kathy in counseling on a regular basis!

When I started therapy I never anticipated finding such wisdom and unconditional love in one person. As you know, I tried for years, even decades—to heal. My peeps felt so unyielding and carrying them was so heavy. You helped me find out that they were trying to carry me, give me love and wanting me to heal. Thank you for helping me find myself—so many parts of me that I had continually pushed down—and to learn to listen to and love these dear peeps so much better. You help me walk with courage and hope. You are the best

Kathy is absolutely the best. She has helped me learn and grow a ton. She really cares about people and is a true blessing for many. Thank you Kathy and the whole team at Therapy Utah.

Recovering from the effects of another person’s sexaholism has been the most painful, exhausting, and grueling thing I’ve ever had to face. The constant change of emotion and irrational thinking was almost unbearable. Kathy was there for me as a beacon of light and reasoning in my raging storm of crazy. Her ability to relate to people on many different levels, accepting their humanness, and encouraging their growth is a gift that everyone should have the opportunity to experience. Using just the right balance of firmness and gentleness, she guided my progress and allowed me to learn through trial and error without judgment. Her compassion and true concern for anyone seeking recovery (rather it be the addict or victim) is what makes Kathy so unique and successful

I highly recommend Kathy as someone who can provide the tools for professional learning in the field of mental health. Kathy is a personable and warm individual and has exceptional teaching skills. Her skills go above and beyond as she is able to share information in a relatable way using meaningful stories and profound analogies that assist in internalizing understanding of material. I am grateful for her skilled way of teaching in a humble and confident matter and that she is so willing and talented in sharing her knowledge with mental health professionals

Kathy is the most amazing therapist I have ever seen! I recommend her to everyone and their practice is everything you need and more!

I couldn't recommend her enough. She helped me through some difficult things.

My team, and other participants of your webinar across the board made it very clear that if anyone presents on this in the future it should be you! Honestly, I was very impressed with your content presentation design, delivery style, patience, timing, and overall presentation. We have a VERY small handful of NAADAC webinars that glow to our training team, mainly because we spend so much time with webinars that we often grow numb and over-critique presenters. You did an excellent job, and our entire team was so impressed! Please stay tuned as I would love to connect with you one day and learn more about your passion and expertise so we can collaborate more in the future.
