After moving to Maryland, Ann worked as an intake and probation officer for Juvenile Services. While raising her children she was an adjunct university lecturer in the Psychology Department at Towson University. She was fortunate to work as a school counselor in Baltimore County Public Schools at all levels for many years. She has experience working as a therapist in private practice and with LDS Family Services in Maryland. She moved back to Utah in 2015 and in addition to her practice at Aspire, she also works as a therapist at Touchstone Child and Family Therapy Center.

Working with children and adolescents of all ages and their parents is Ann’s speciality. Attachment issues, adoption, trauma and educational issues are a focus of interest. She has worked with individuals managing depression, anxiety, career and marital difficulties and a plethora of mental health issues.

I enjoy bike riding, hiking, backpacking, gardening, stitching with friends, and most of all spending time with my family members. A fun fact is that while working at a Girl Scout Camp I met Dana, my husband.

Meet others


A trusting and caring therapeutic relationship where one feels understood can be the spark that a person needs to manage the stress and difficulties of their life. This support can help a person on their path to healing, recovery, reaching their goals and potential. As a therapist I want to provide that relationship, adding professional skills and knowledge that can be instrumental in the process.
