Mary Beth Lente, LCSW

Clinical Director

I graduated with my Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Utah. I have been working as a social worker for ten years involving child welfare, medical social work, therapy, end of life care and substance use. I have worked with children, teens, families, adults and the LGBTQIA+ community.

I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, grief/loss and trauma. I have a passion for allowing clients to have a safe and comfortable environment in which they can process emotional struggles and work on their unique goals.

I strive to create a space for empowerment, healing and growth.

I enjoy providing counseling to individuals of all ages with a primary focus on young adults. I use the modalities CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.

I provide in person appointments on selective weeknights and Saturday mornings. In my spare time, I enjoy paddle-boarding, reading, art and traveling.
