Christian Snuffer Counseling & Coaching
I have eight years of behavioral health experience in a variety of settings. I got my start at the Rape Recovery Center in Salt Lake City, which turned out to be a life-changing experience. I got into wilderness therapy, which catalyzed my decision to become a therapist. I spent the next seven years working on & off with different wilderness programs and still stay involved today. My clinical focus was on substance abuse and addiction treatment during graduate school. Outside of private practice, I work for Outpatient Behavioral Health as a canna-therapist and medical cannabis advocate and Evoke Therapy as a lead intensive therapist.

My approach is a collaborative, non-directive exploration of what it means to be you. I work through an "egogenic/egolytic" lens focused on strengthening your connection with yourself and, therefore, others. I use a variety of modalities in this process, including CBT, attachment theory, motivational interviewing, EMDR, solutions-focused therapy, inner-child work, psychedelic/holotropic therapy, and other mindfulness approaches.
I tend to work with young adults (18-35) who feel a prevailing sense of anxiety and unease surrounding their life circumstances. I help these people navigate faith transitions, major life adjustments, and quests for purpose and meaning. My connection-focused model is good for anyone who seeks connection with themselves, and others, and thereby achieve a release from the stress, anxiety, and trauma that so often characterizes our lives.
