A compassionate listener, Sharla has a knack for helping others connect with their emotions.

- EMDR Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy
- TF-CBT Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Sharla’s therapy style provides information and therapeutic tools designed to help families and individuals heal from their past and find ways to move forward. She is licensed in both Arizona and Utah, and also serves the local community as a therapist at the Kane County Utah Children’s Justice Center.
She has a passion for photography, playing the piano, reading, and staying connected. Sharla and her husband Phil have been married for thirty-eight years, and in addition to their own tribe of seven, they have sixteen grandchildren, a gaggle of geese and a flock of ducks.
