BIPOC community: “I am a proud Asian-American. I have worked within the Black, indigenous, people of color community for some time and enjoy being able to help individuals work through multiple issues. Having been born and raised in Utah, I understand the complexities that come from being a minority. There has been a stigma with therapy within some cultures and I want to help normalize therapy and its benefits”.

Substance abuse issues: “My background is in substance abuse as I have worked in the field for 8 years, at the beginning of my career. I have worked in outpatient mostly. I have completed substance abuse assessments, worked on treatment plans, and relapse prevention planning as well as a multitude of coping skills to help clients stay sober.”

Alena Ericksen, CMHC-I

I have a bachelors in Marriage and Family Studies from BYUI, a masters from the School of Natural Healing (private school), a certification from The National Guild of Hypnotists, and am currently working to earn a second masters from Liberty University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Some of my greatest experience has come from being a wife of 25 years, mother of six, and a grandmother to one, I understand the complexities that can unfold in life.
As Lao Tsu once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step”, I would be most honored to support you in a warm and compassionate environment as you take this step.
Because of my deep love for people, I cannot think of a greater reward than to serve others by helping to minimize human suffering. Walking with someone on their journey in overcoming life’s challenges is one of the greatest privileges another can venture on. I believe in the potential of each individual in achieving their goals and the best life possible.
Some of the modalities that resonate with me are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered and Solution-Focused. I believe in offering clients the latest research and highest quality of care that will support their goals. I believe that optimal well-being is often a wholistic approach that encompasses multiple factors of an individual’s life. For example, because of my training from The School of Natural Healing, I can offer clients education on alternative options to improve physical health that may be impacting mental health.
