Janey Nelson

Janey Nelson is the co-owner of Healthier You Counseling Center, a  Licensed Clinical Social Worker and has been a therapist for more than 15 years. She is a Master ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) practitioner, the only one in Utah currently. Janey is an adjunct professor of psychology at Utah Valley University (UVU)and has presented at both state and national conferences. One of Janey's passions is helping others discover their best self and she does this by running a variety of groups which include empowerment for women and teens, and due to family being so important to her, she runs Gottman and Layers of Love marriage groups. To add to all of her professional experience, Janey is a wife, mother, grandmother and worked as a foster parent for more than 22 years. For her work as a foster parent, Janey was awarded the State of Utah's Child Advocate of the year.

One of Janey's greatest beliefs is that it is important to love everyone, no matter the circumstances. Jany tries to show her love by practicing kindness, which she thinks is honest, assertive and real with respect and love. It seems to be this belief that helps Janey connect with her clients and develop bonds of trust between them. Janey loves to cook, enjoys nature and finds peace in jewelry making. Janey practices mindfulness in each of those activities which keeps her grounded and in touch with herself.

Harmony Packer

I am passionate about mental health. My favorite thing about being a therapist is the relief I see in clients’ eyes when they overcome challenges and find peace. When you seek therapy, you are making a courageous investment in your well-being. I work within the framework of your values and goals to help you find that relief and peace.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the foundation of my approach to therapy. I am also trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and play therapy. I take a trauma-informed and strengths-based approach, incorporating mindfulness, emotion regulation skills, and tools from other therapy models according to your needs. I have experience treating anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, behavioral issues, and trauma. I especially enjoy working with children, teens, and young adults. There is so much room for the trajectories of their lives to change for the better if they can learn how to be mentally healthy when they are young.

I seek to understand your experiences, values, hopes, and dreams, in order to best help you. Like a seed, we as human beings are meant to grow. My goal in therapy is to provide a warm and trusting relationship in which your growth can occur. I enrich my own life by spending time with my husband and sons, serving neighbors, and reading and learning. I also enjoy Crossfit, singing, listening to sports on the radio, and eating Thai food on a regular basis.
