About Candace:

Candace was born and raised in Southern California but has seen a lot of the world as a member of the United States Air Force. While in the military, Candace traveled over the United States and United Kingdom, met the person she would marry, had five children, and was inspired to pursue a career working with kids and families

She earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California in 2014, with a major in mental health and a minor in military lifestyle. She is a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Utah with experience working with kids and adults individually, in pairs, and in groups. She is trained in treating trauma, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, attachment disorders, complicated grief, OCD, bi-polar, personality disorders, neurological development deficits/delays, parenting skills, body image, and more.

Having grown up in a blended family and traveled all over the world as an adult, Candace appreciates the unique experiences each individual brings to their own care. With that in mind, Candace strives to create space for each client to feel safe and supported, regardless of religious, ethnic, cultural, sexual, or gender orientation.

Parent Feedback

Dr Ryan always makes us truly feel cared for. He genuinely asks questions of us and has helped us over the years with everything we may need that day! He has always made each of my children feel so comfortable. I feel like “Families First” is one perfect name for how all of the employees there have treated us.
