Carolyn Heninger, LCSW
Most issues become more manageable when we aren’t facing them alone. I love people and helping them heal, and work through the process of change. Seeing people resolve short or long-term issues that may have developed over their life span is a true joy. My approach to therapy is a combination of compassion and understanding where individuals can utilize the techniques and skills learned, to be the person they’re capable of being. I became interested in psychology in middle school because it was so exciting and fascinating. I obtained my degree from Utah State University in Family and Human Development, Psychology and Sociology. I then proceeded to The University of Utah to earn MSW in Social Work and received my LCSW two years later. I have been in practice for over 25 years, and I work with most types of mental health disorders or diagnosis including depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma, substance abuse, ADHD, relationship issues, and regulating emotions. My goal is to offer a space where you feel seen, heard, and supported, wherever you are on your journey.
In my downtime I very much enjoy the outdoors, gardening, experiencing new places and enjoying family and friends.
Cynthia Kimberlin-Flanders, LCMHC

I specialize in grief, recovery from narcissistic abuse, depression, life transition, midlife issues, crisis of faith, substance abuse and domestic violence. As well as human rights, I am an advocate for animal rights.

J. Grant Brown, LCMHC
I am a licensed CMHC, practicing for over six years (from February 2016), having graduated with a master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the accredited Adams State University in Colorado. In my counseling career thus far much of my focus has been on pain and healing. I have done so utilizing the therapeutic approaches of EMDR, ACT, DBT, and other tools to address past trauma, addictions, mental health symptoms, and interpersonal issues. EMDR is my main approach, for I have found it to have amazing results with clients willing to put in the work for their problems associated with life experiences and trauma. I have worked well with both offenders and victims of domestic violence, addiction, and people with symptoms of psychosis, ADHD, PTSD, bipolar, major depression, and anxiety. Any stigma, addiction (behavioral, such as sex, or chemical, such as substance), past abuse, traumatic incident, or failure is not beyond healing. All that is needed is willingness to strive with your pain, embrace healing and growth, and then thriving and recovery can occur.
I became a therapist because I could empathize and feel what someone is going through, which I have found to be healing. I am passionate about my family, trail running, gardening, camping, hiking, reading, cooking/food preparation, the outdoors and building.

I see patients two to three days per week at Sundance Behavioral. I truly enjoy working at here, as I work alongside very skilled psychotherapists at this clinic. As research shows, medications and individual therapy are the gold standard of treating most forms of mental illness and I believe we do both very well.
I enjoy many activities during my time off such as golfing, scuba diving, skiing, traveling, gaming, and caring for my menagerie of animals at home which are currently cats and parrots.

I have worked in residential treatment centers, day care treatment facilities for troubled youth and Autism, Family Services, and private practice. I specialize in helping youth and adults work through these challenging times by figuring out how and what to change. I look at therapy as an opportunity to help people work through life’s challenges (relationship challenges, social withdrawal, addiction, self-esteem, etc.). I do not consider myself to be anymore or any less than anyone else. I encourage people not to judge themselves in negative ways or to judge others. I believe our lives can improve if we can see ourselves and others in healthier ways.
How do we experience that healthier life? Let’s figure that out together!

Tamara Vitela, LCSW

I enjoy working with individuals, families and couples going through life transitions or adjustments. My main approaches include cognitive-behavioral therapy; extinguishing the negative, psychodynamic; how past can create your present, guided imagery; relaxation techniques and narrative therapy; understanding our stories and how they shape us including “reauthoring” those stories that are not your own and/or don’t serve you. Narrative work includes “countering” societal narratives that are not congruent with your identity and sense of self.
I enjoy creative writing, cooking, camping and spending time with her creative and funny family and two furry and mischievous dog friends.
Tara Lemley Jensen, LCMHC
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the states of Utah and Washington and an addiction specialist who received my master’s in counseling from Seattle University. I trained with physicians and their patients at the University of Washington Family Medicine program and with severely addicted patients in Seattle and Maui.I have also worked with children in crisis and their families, couples, and individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, eating disorders, relationship challenges, conflict / anger, trauma, sexuality and gender issues and other concerns that negatively impact the health and wellbeing of my patients.
I believe we live our lives in patterns, some healthy and some not. Identifying and addressing what is not working in our lives is a starting point to building awareness, new skills and the resolution of obstacles to wellness. One of my favorite quotes is from Franklin D. Roosevelt: A calm sea never made a skilled sailor. Life can be a storm – it’s what we do with it that makes the difference. I am trained in EMDR, a type of therapy that I believe is the physiological missing link to other treatment modalities which I also practice to promote change, including: mindfulness, cognitive behavior therapy, narrative therapy, issue education, communication and boundary skill development, etc. I almost always give out homework (and you can choose to do it or not!). In my free time, my husband, dog and I head to the hills to hike, ski, camp and enjoy nature.
