I grew up in Utah and received my Bachelors of Psychology from the University of Utah. After completing my undergraduate work, my husband and I moved to Colorado to ski, hike and work in a small Colorado town. I moved to Boulder to attend the Naropa University in Boulder Colorado. I graduated in 1998 with a Masters in Contemplative Psychology. After graduation I moved back to Salt Lake City and worked at Valley Mental Health for 9 years. While working at Valley I obtained a wide variety of experience especially in the areas of Major Mental Illness and Addictions.
