Four Training Modules
Therapy candidates must complete four training modules, each lasting 4 1/2 days. Supervision is required throughout the training. Trainees complete a total of 30-hours of clinical supervision to enhance their counseling skills. Once they’ve completed the training and clinical supervision, the candidate must submit an Application for Final Certification to IITAP for approval.
Constantly Upgrading their Skills as CSATs
Therapists who’ve been certified as sex addiction counselors are required to renew their certification every two years after their original certification date. We must participate in many Continuing Education (CE) hours over the next two year period.

I am a Clinical Social Worker with experience working in a range of therapeutic settings, from inpatient care for substance abuse to private practice. I work with clients in Bountiful, Salt Lake City, and neighboring cities in Utah affected by depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, grief and loss, and relationship challenges. One of the experiences that influenced me to become a therapist was my volunteer work at a domestic violence shelter, where I was certified as a core advocate for survivors. Outside of my work as a therapist, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, hiking, and traveling to new places.
