ABOUT LAIYAN BAWADEEN

I believe being genuine and compassionate is one of the most important assets a therapist can Have with them in the therapy room. It allows the therapist-client relationship to grow where change can happen. Each of us have a story to tell and I feel privileged and honored to be able to listen to some of these and work with my clients to re-write narratives that work for them.

I began my journey as an international student in January 2017 at the University of Utah. I am currently pursuing my Master’s in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling. As a person who goes to school full time and work, I recognize and empathize with the many stressors that a lot of my clients go through and how vulnerable our mental health is during this stage, so it is very important to take care of it. During my free time, I like to take care of myself by cooking/baking, reading one of the many novels I have in my reading list, playing video games and enjoying the beautiful nature of Utah.
