Adena Campbell is currently pursuing a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Utah Valley University. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Psychology and has more than 20 years of experience working with teenagers in the school system, including starting and running programs to help them improve their mental wellness. In addition to her work with teenagers, she has worked in mental health facilities with a diverse set of clients and frequently presents workshops on mental health to adults in many settings. Adena is a passionate advocate for mental health awareness in her community.

Adena’s therapeutic treatment modalities are individualized to the needs of each client, whether that be Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Existential Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, or other theories. She is an avid learner who constantly seeks to learn about and incorporate evidence-based practices into her approach, all with the client’s individual needs in mind. She is a firm believer in one’s ability to help themselves through mindfulness, values, courage, faith, and humor.

Adena’s strengths lie in her ability to develop a positive rapport with her clients and in using the power of language and targeted techniques to help clients cope with difficult experiences and cognitions. She has worked with a diverse population who struggle with a variety of issues and enjoys learning new things from every client she meets. Her experiences in the community and school systems put her in touch with many helpful resources and programs.

Before settling in Utah County, Adena Campbell lived all over the country, including Tennessee, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Washington State. She enjoys backpacking with her husband and two children and learning new skills like beekeeping, backyard chicken farming, drawing, coloring, and making cold process soap. In her free time she enjoys running, hiking, puzzling, reading, playing in a flute choir, meme-hunting, writing, traveling to warmer climes, accumulating cat t-shirts, and watching British detective shows.
