Advanced Awareness Counseling
- Troys's Therapy
I graduated from the University of Utah Clinical Mental Health Counseling program and I have a deep passion for working with people and helping them understand themselves.
I have several years of experience working with adolescents and families in crisis. I am versed in suicide assessment and prevention for both adolescents and adults. I am committed to being there to help you understand your worth and guiding you toward finding your purpose.
I advocate extensively for the LGBTQ+ community and am an active advocate in both Salt Lake County and Utah County, not to mention wherever I go! I am affiliated with Encircle/Flourish and Authentic Awareness Inc., both non-profit corporations helping the LGBTQ+ community access and obtain resources. I follow WPATH standards and keep up to date on all information disseminated by the LGBT Affirmative Therapists Guild of Utah.
I believe strongly that self-love and self-respect are the solid basis for good mental and emotional health.
I work from a person-centered approach, believing that each client can be the expert in their own life. I am enthusiastic about helping clients explore what possibilities for what the future holds!
