He has his full social worker license (LCSW) in both Utah and Arizona, and is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). Mike has worked with a number of individuals to help them work through symptoms related to depression. ADHD, anxiety, and LGBTQ+ issues. In addition to those, Mike is also very familiar with helping others heal from trauma in various forms, as it seems to be a matter that is becoming more pervasive and acknowledged by our culture. He is trained in several therapeutic modalities that include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT); Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT); Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Laughter and good humor have always been important in Mike's approach to much of life -- including therapy -- which is why he spends most of his free time with friends and family doing pretty much anything that can get a laugh which includes: open mic stand-up, video games, speaking in mostly Simpsons quotes, and running a comedy podcast with his wife (who is ALSO a therapist).

Dominique Cloutier

Dr. Dominique Cloutier holds a doctorate in psychology from the Université du Québec à Montréal. She is a clinical psychologist licensed by the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec.
Dominique has clinical experience in a wide range of issues, including anxiety disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders and attachment disorders. For many years, she has worked with individuals suffering from emotional, interpersonal and/or family difficulties due to a variety of situations: bereavement, separation, depression, anxiety, childhood trauma linked to psychological, physical and sexual abuse, and life transitions. Dominique also has experience with the difficulties and issues associated with the perinatal period, and she accompanies (future) parents through their experience.
In her clinical practice, she works with a highly varied clientele from a variety of cultures and communities. Her clinical work is therefore integrative, drawing on different orientations and currents of thought according to the needs of each individual and building on the unique qualities and strengths of each person.
Dominique sees therapy first and foremost as an intimate space in which to feel supported and understood in the face of painful situations. This space allows us to connect with our human emotional experiences and thus improve our ability to recognise our emotions, by naming and experiencing them in order to regulate them better. Therapy also enables us to become aware of our ways of thinking and the behavioural choices/patterns that contribute to our current problems. Finally, Dominique attaches great importance to the therapeutic alliance and has created a warm atmosphere based on compassion, trust and humour, because therapy is also a place where we can share and celebrate our successes, our moments of pride and joy.
She offers her services in French and English to teenagers and adults.

Dominique considère la thérapie comme avant tout un espace intime qui permet de se sentir soutenu et compris face aux situations douloureuses que l’on traverse. Cette espace permet de connecter avec nos expériences émotionnelles humaines et ainsi d’améliorer nos capacités à reconnaitre nos émotions, en les nommant et les expérimentant afin de mieux les réguler. La thérapie nous permet par ailleurs de prendre conscience de nos façons de penser et de nos choix/patrons comportementaux participants à nos problèmes actuels. Enfin, Dominique accorde une grande importance à l’alliance thérapeutique et a créé un climat chaleureux fondé sur la compassion, la confiance et l’humour, car la thérapie est aussi un endroit où l’on doit pouvoir partager et célébrer nos réussites, nos moments de fierté et de joie.
Elle offre ses services en français et en anglais à une clientèle adolescente et adulte.

Jeffrey Hoy

I am a therapist who wants to help you, in the way that works for you, and at the pace that works for you. I seek to create a safe, calm, and open place for you to explore what is really going on. I have lived a richly experienced life - and I know first hand what it's like to be in a difficult place. I believe that my broad life experience - with both positive and many negative experiences - gives me an exceptional ability to understand, empathize with, and inspire the clients I work with. My training enables me to help clients explore uncomfortable underlying emotions, thoughts, and memories that keep them from living the life they want.

Areej Siddiqui

I have worked for eight years in generalist practice, and for three years each pursuing specialization in trauma therapy and sex therapy. My approach is grounded in curiosity, discovery, and collaboration. I hold faith in clients’ capacities to direct their own lives, and I enter into the therapeutic process as a reverent and humble companion. Together we might invite the unexpressed, listen for possibility, play with new and different self-narratives, and arrive at ways of moving onward that align with who you would like to be in the world. The ideas I introduce and directions I might pursue with clients are informed by feminist and queer theory, developmental psychology, perspectives on attachment and differentiation, and contemporary nervous system theory. Clients often leave with new understandings of themselves and their difficulties, enabling new and different actions in their lives.

In addition to a Masters in Couple and Family Therapy, I have pursued additional training in EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and couples therapy to address sexual issues. I enjoy working with a wide variety of folks—including the consensually non-monogamous, those among the lgbtq2s+, those in multi-cultural families or partnerships, and with experiences of immigration in their family history.

Apart from her training in traditional psychotherapy, Niyati has a keen interest in the therapeutic application of psychedelics. She has completed her training in MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD (MAPS USA) and from Integrative Psychiatric Institute (IPI), USA to become a Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Provider.
