Aarati Ghimire, MSW, LCSW
“I come from the country of beautiful mountains Nepal. I immigrated to the States in 2010 and have loved staying in Utah ever since. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I earned both my bachelors and master’s degree in social work from the University of Utah. Tackling mental health on a personal and familial level, I understand the importance of having safe space to process these experiences. Hence, comes the passion for mental health and providing services on a professional level. I am very humanistic in my approach to treating mental health issues. Along with that, I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT).
I also believe therapy should not have one mere focus on a micro level but needs to move beyond and understand the complexities of a person from macro and mezzo level. My approach in therapy is inspired from a multicultural, strength based and trauma informed lens. In addition, I provide special insights on issues with diversity such as acculturation, immigration, resettlement etc. and its correlation with mental health. I speak three languages (Nepali, Hindi and English). In my free time, I enjoy folk dancing and exploring the mountains of Utah.”
