Carlos E. Gomez
Owner, MSW, LCSW, CPT, EMDR
I am a trauma therapist. I help people work through painful life events and to find healing in place of hurt. I work with people that feel broken and abused beyond repair. I find much joy in helping people "come back to life" and to live their fullest life. We are on this earth to help one another, to be both teacher and student, and to make our stay for ourselves and others a better place. I specialize in trauma relating to betrayal, PTSD and CPTSD. I also have treat anxiety, depression, grief/loss, shame, pornography compulsion and feelings of worthlessness etc. Providing a healers touch through therapy is my contribution to this world.
I am a husband to a wonderful woman and a father to three girls, and one dog, Maggie. I started my professional education in Northern Utah at Utah Valley University and concluded it online at the University of Southern California. I am very personable and love to get to know people. My practice has been a great fit for mixing my love of people with my ability to heal. My caseload has become very full and rather than turn clients away, I decided to expand my practice and to train the next generation of trauma healers. I am pleased to introduce my following team members:

She will help you to safely explore pains of the past in a non-judgmental way. Ashley has a love of people that can be felt and is a therapist that you can absolutely trust.
I have been working with and treating clients for since 2015. Like anyone who starts something new, it took time for me to really get good at it. I guess that is why we call it a "therapy practice." This practice focuses on helping people heal from all levels of traumatizations, PTSD/CPTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Grief and Loss, Betrayal Trauma, Anger, Fear, and Relationship Issues and other issues. I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) and also certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) to help clients attain deep, lasting, and real change.
Clients come here in good faith that they can go deep and heal deep. If you are wondering if therapy is right for you, it is.
Therapy is a sacred ground where two human beings come together to combine thought processes, feel emotions in a trusted space, and to let go of hurts and grow in ways that can only come with the healing balm of therapy. Therapy will help you to sort through confusing thoughts and emotions, let go of painful memories, and step into your most productive and fulfilling life.
We work with with children, teens, and adults. We do not exclude any person based on gender, race, culture, religion, ethnicity, or sexuality. We are advocates for the LGBTQ+ community. Regardless of the client we have in front of us, we always ensure they are treated with the highest quality of respect and professionalism.
In order to serve as many people as we can, we are paneled with a variety of insurances: Selecthealth, EMI, UHC, PEHP, Wise Network, Tall Trees, BCBS, Cigna, Molina and bishop pay.
