Primary Therapist - Center St Campus
“Nathan is warm and friendly. He helped us to stay on track during sessions and is there for us if we need him. Our sessions always had an agenda and we always knew what to expect for the following week. I believe Nathan has helped me learn how to be a better listener and communicator with our son (and all those I am surrounded by daily). I have become a better parent to my two girls at home. I see Telos and Nathan as being a life changing force for both our son and our entire family.” -parent
Nathan has been with Telos for more than a decade. His passion is working with young people and helping them find peace, direction, and meaning in their lives. Academically Nathan graduated from Brigham Young University with both a Psychology undergrad and Masters in Social Work. He approaches therapy with genuine mindset that feeling cared for is required before someone is motivated to change. Willingness to change comes differently to everyone, yet when ready, it takes experience to softly find the path that works best individually. Nathan employs a relational, straight forward and logical approach to the work he does. Modalities include CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Family Systems, DBT, and ERP. Primarily, the focus is to uncover what approach is going to work best for each student given their personality and presenting challenges. The clinical team that Nathan directs are all equally motivated and skilled to succeed. What sets the Telos Academy – Clinical Team apart is a universal desire and goal to build relationships first and really see the person, the real person who needs support, love and time to heal.
Nathan leads by example with kindness, healthy habits and active lifestyle and encourages his team and students to do the same. At least twice per year, he competes in triathlons, side-by-side with Telos students.
