Shannon White, LMFT-S
I am the Executive Director, founder of Thrive Family Therapy, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and AAMFT Approved Supervisor, as well as a wife and mother. As a woman who wears many hats, I understand that life can be overwhelming and learning how to balance it can be a challenge.
I am trained in systemic thinking, and realize that no two people are the same and as such, I tailor my therapy to meet the specific needs of my clients. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or any other issue, I will help you recognize underlying problems, fully realize your strengths and offer a new perspective to see things in a different, healthier way.
We all embark on our own, unique journey attempting to carve out a path that will bring us joy. However, there are times when that path leads us off the course of happiness and fulfillment and into the unknown. I know it feels daunting now but you have already taken the courageous step of seeking professional help for any challenges you may be experiencing and we are so glad you are here.
I will work with you to help you develop the strategies you need to rediscover what brings you joy and success in your life. Together we will work to address the issues you are facing so that you may embark on a new path with confidence.
We will work together to analyze what specific struggles you are facing, as well as their underlying causes, to meet your specific needs.
In addition, to my formal educational experiences, I have received post-graduate specialty training in Eye Movement Desensation and Reprocessing (EMDR), an externship in Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), as well as extensive training in Jungian play therapy and sand tray therapy. I am also an AAMFT Approved Supervisor for intern and associate level LPC and MFT's working on entering the field and also completing hours.
I have completed Level 3 of the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy and received training in and can facilitate classes as a Seven Principles Leader.
I am also a member of the LGBTQ-Affirmative Psychotherapy Guild of Utah.
