- Clinical Mental Health Intern -
Jennifer is currently working towards a master's degree in clinical mental health. As a child, she witnessed people close to her suffer from anxiety, depression, and trauma. "It can be confusing to feel symptoms such as depression and anxiety and not understand why we are feeling them and how to overcome them. Mental health illness affects approximately one in four people worldwide; my goal is to do my part (regardless of how futile) in decreasing this number." -Jennifer. Jennifer's experience began as an undergraduate while attending the University of Utah and working at a youth treatment center. At the time, she developed a passion for helping those who have been victims of trauma, especially sex abuse, and who suffer from mental illness. Her experiences of trauma and mental illness further developed as a caseworker for the Department of Children and Family Services. When hope and light seem lost in the most dire circumstances, Jennifer believes there is a way to see the light again. She believes in a collaborative approach, walking side by side with individuals on their journey until they are able to walk ahead on their own.

Tina is an Idaho girl who came to St. George for school. While earning her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, she found and married the man of her dreams. She chose to embrace the heat and make St. George home. The lack of cold made it easy for her to become a certified tennis pro (teacher, not the kind on the circuit making millions).
Tina loves being with her family. Whether driving kids around to their various activities, hiking, playing ball, tennis, or golfing, you will find her surrounded by her family. You can even find her in the backyard dominating her kids in an intense game of kickball. Tina is excited to join the staff of Breakthough Therapy and for the opportunity to communicate with other adults now that her four kids are in school full time.
More About Logan's Therapy Techniques
"In general, my approach in therapy is using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, helping the individual learn to recognize thought patterns and how to restructure these which in turn improves the emotional response and allow for a greater ability to manage behavior as well, and then, if appropriate and necessary, I blend/combine a psychodynamic approach which will help the individual become more aware and conscious of the underlying concerns from past experience that influences them consciously and subconsciously. These approaches then ultimately lead to allowing you to integrate information from both past and present to be more mindful and in control of your thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
"Some alternative therapies I use include EMDR- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (Trauma & PTSD) and Exposure Therapy (Trauma, OCD, Phobias), Motivational Interviewing (Substance abuse, Addictions, teens), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (Anxieties, OCD, Depression), and Mindfulness (Anxiety, Panic attacks, Depression, Grief, Sleep issues), as well as the Gottman Method for couples therapy." -Logan
