Techniques can be helpful, but "it's the relationship that heals." ~ Irvin Yalom, M.D.
"It's the relationship that heals.” This is a quote by Irvin Yalom, M.D., a renowned psychotherapist who saw that more important than any particular technique is the quality of the therapeutic relationship. I agree. While I regularly teach techniques to manage symptoms of distress, I believe that true growth and healing come from an empathic, honest and transparent relationship with another human being. Underneath the umbrella of a compassionate relationship, I utilize different approaches depending on the developmental age of the client and the presenting problem at hand. These therapeutic approaches include CBT, DBT,
Kassandra Zamora, CSW
From her first intro to social work class in college, Kassandra knew she wanted to work in a profession that was centered around helping people. Kassandra graduated from Weber State University in 2018 with a bachelors in social work and went on to graduate from Our Lady of the Lake University in spring 2021 with a masters in social work. She has a background of working in the child welfare system and working with clients ranging from abused children in foster care, to adults struggling with substance abuse or mental health. Kassandra completed her masters field practicum at FCS before having the opportunity to be hired as a full-time therapist. Kassandra believes that mental health should be normalized and clients do not have to let their diagnosis define them. Kassandra believes every client has their own story to tell, and therapy is a way to help cope and find that friendly face to listen to.
Joyce Robison, CMHC
I received my undergraduate from Weber State University in Social Work, I then went on and received my graduate degree from The University of Phoenix with a Master's in Counseling. I have been a therapist for 17 years. I started the first 15 years working with adolescents and the last couple of years with both youth and adults. I usually connect well with my clients because we can find many similar things in common. I like football, reading, watching TV and playing video games.
