Anna Horton, LCSW
Let’s face it, few if anyone’s life goes according to plan. Challenges, obstacles, and hardships come to each of us, at times knocking us down on the ground. To get back on our feet, we may need a hand to lift us, be taught new skills, and receive encouragement to keep moving forward. There is meaning and purpose in life. It is my hope to work with you on your journey to find the satisfaction you seek.
With this goal in mind, I sought out opportunities to be qualified to effectively and compassionately do this work. I hold a Bachelor of Social Work Degree from the University of Utah, where I was involved with student organizations to advocate for diverse populations and to promote eating disorder awareness and education. I went on to earn a Master of Social Work Degree from Brigham Young University, where I completed a clinically-oriented program, focusing on therapeutic interventions and working with individuals, groups, and families. My research focused on the relationships between positive sibling relationships, family resiliency, and the metabolic control of children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes.
Throughout my post-graduate career, I’ve had diverse experiences working with teens, young adults, and adults. I have experience treating depression, anxiety, eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and dia-bulimia), grief, loss, addiction, diabetes, kidney disease, and other chronic conditions. I have worked in residential, PHP, IOP, and outpatient levels of care. I completed training to teach Stanford University’s Living Well with Chronic Conditions, Diabetes, and Chronic Pain program. I have facilitated classes, helping many to better manage their physical and mental health. At my core, I’m passionate about helping people care for their bodies, mind, and soul.
I believe in the growth and potential of every person, and in the capacity to overcome. There is hope, meaning, and purpose in life. I look forward to helping you on your journey.
