Dr Christian Monson, Psychologist

Clinical Director
Orem

Christian Monson has catered his practice to be there for those moments in your life when you realize that “Something has to change. Things aren’t quite right. You never thought you’d act the way you do when you’re pushed the wrong way by things you can’t control, or by people who should love and understand you.” He gets it. He really does. And good news, he can help. Dr Christian Monson has extensive training on personality & mood disorders, helping navigate the pains of infidelity, grief, loss, and trauma. He is keenly aware of the silent anguish caused by caregiver fatigue, chronic conditions, identity crises, faith loss and life transitions. You don’t have to suffer alone. In fact, with Dr Monson by your side, your journey towards wellness and healing will feel less intense with each passing therapy session.

Sariah Pineda, CSW

Taylorsville & Virtual

I believe everyone has the potential to reach a greater sense of well-being no matter where they are in life. I enjoy connecting with people and believe this to be something that we all desire and need. Despite our greatest hopes, I know that our thoughts can be debilitating at times. I love working with individuals to establish new ways of thinking and interpreting the world around us. Personal experiences have led me to a greater understanding of the reality of depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem amongst other very real hardships. I enjoy sitting with others through these difficulties and helping them learn the appropriate skills to grow through them and beyond them. Some of the modalities I use in therapy include CBT, DBT, and ACT. I am also trained in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy for Selective Mutism and am passionate about helping children find their brave voices! When I’m not working, I enjoy going for walks and hikes; spending time with loved ones; and capturing landscapes through watercolor painting and photography.
