Tori Trumpet, LCSW

Tori received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Psychology from Utah Valley University and her Master’s of Social Work from the University of Utah. She spent 7 years working in different capacities for Juvenile Justice Services with delinquent youth in a secure-residential treatment setting. Most recently, she has worked in an outpatient setting with at-risk children and adolescents, young adults, families and couples. Her primary focus and passion is working with at-risk teens and young adults and the challenges they deal with including: abuse, depression, anxiety, family issues, adjustment disorders, personality disorders, anger management, defiance, social skills, trauma, addiction, self-esteem, self-harm, suicidal ideation, communication and other issues.

Tori believes that therapy should fit the client’s individuality, strengths and needs; not the other way around. She uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused, Motivational Interviewing and other treatment modalities to meet her client’s needs.  She is also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). 

Tori understands the importance of cultivating a strong therapeutic relationship with teens and young adults as she helps them with problems they face. She is passionate about music, sports and good food.  When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, enjoying the outdoors and traveling.
