PhD Licensed Psychologist
Clay was born and raised in Utah, and he has spent a few years living in Texas and Mongolia. He feels fortunate to have loving parents, and he maintains strong ties with his parents and siblings. One of his greatest joys in life has been the opportunity to be a husband and a father, and he enjoys staying up way too late playing games with his children. He prides himself on being competitive in all racquet sports, though a few grey hairs and his wife’s delicious bundt cake have slowed him a bit in recent years.
Education and Work Experience:
Clay earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah. He studied psychology and family/consumer science. He went on to complete a PhD in Counseling Psychology from Brigham Young University. Clay has worked in an administrative capacity for both disability services and private practice over the last five years. He has also specialized in psychological assessment and has completed hundreds of evaluations over the last few years.
Clay strives to provide an environment of safety, security, and warmth where exploration and reconstruction can occur freely. He integrates evidenced-based approaches to assist clients as they work out difficulties related to development and belonging. Clay’s work is heavily influenced by attachment theory, constructivism, emotion-focused therapy, and compassion-focused therapy.
