"Chad and I worked together for years. He challenged me in ways I really appreciated. I may have hated these challenges in the moment, but when I was done with it, I learned a lot about myself and knew what I needed to do to move forward. Chad gave me tools to better communicate my needs and when I am in some dark place I know how to ask for what I need and help myself out of those dark moments. If you need someone who can help make you laugh in the dark times and be serious and stern, Chad is one of the best."
“Chad has a unique talent for making you feel comfortable and getting you to open up quickly. He is a great listener and willing to be bold and direct when necessary though at the same time empathetic and gentle when needed as well. His unique background growing up Mormon and now out as a confident gay man makes him relatable and understanding to the many issues faced by gay men in Utah. He is very accessible and sincere in his desire to want to help and goes the extra mile for his clients. I would highly recommend him. In my past few months going to therapy with him, I have already begun to heal and understand myself better. I look forward to the progress I will continue to make with him in the coming months and genuinely look forward to our sessions.”
“Chad makes me feel welcomed, heard, valued and celebrated for the individual I am. Each session I walk away feeling more confident in myself and my ability to navigate life. He has a way with words- he can articulate in short order what I may take minutes to express. And that’s helpful as it enables me to clearly ‘see’, feel and process. Chad's depth and breadth of expertise is obvious and provides an outlet to work through any of life’s challenges. Over a span of time, as we’ve sat and talked, I’ve come to truly trust Chad with my inner most thoughts. He’s helped me find my own way. He’s made a positive difference in my life.”
“I’ve had a difficult couple of years balancing motherhood, my relationships, and a career in the arts. Chad has helped me find balance. I’ve learned to prioritize and, more importantly, to let some things go. His unique set of experiences makes him both funny and wise, and I’m benefitting greatly from his expertise.”
