I am passionate about helping clients focus on their strengths and come to a greater realization that they have the power to achieve happiness and unlock their potential.
Nathan Black is a Social Work Intern studying at Utah Valley University. He is approaching his second year in his Master's program and loves to learn and get to know his clients. Before pursuing his Master's Degree, Nathan received a Bachelor's Degree in Family Studies in 2019 from Utah Valley University. Nathan has had experience working with a variety of populations. Recently, he interned as a School Social Worker for Provo City School District at Lakeview Elementary School. While there, he focused on helping students learn to focus on having positive thoughts (by using principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and learn to be able to recognize and appropriately deal with emotions. He also worked with students who struggled with anxiety or depression. Nathan is also an experienced family life educator. As an undergraduate student, Nathan interned as a Family Coach at the Strengthening Families Program. As an intern, he taught group family life and psychoeducation courses to parents to help strengthen family dynamics. Some examples of lessons he taught included topics such as communication, boundaries, conflict resolution, and others. Nathan is experienced in individual and group counseling.

Nathan loves being a counselor because he loves helping clients have a more clear picture of their worth. Nathan believes that his role is to support clients however he can to believe in their ability to change and grow. Nathan is also passionate about helping clients work through their trauma using principles of EMDR in order to live a happier life and understand how to be more effective.

In his free time, Nathan loves spending time with his wife and son, Ezra. He also loves spending time with his parents and siblings; he considers his family as his best friends. He loves spending time outside doing activities such as playing basketball, hiking and surfing behind a boat. He also loves watching sports, especially the Utah Jazz.
