My name is Antje (aunt-tia) Rath. I have been a mental health provider for over 20 years. I grew up in Germany where I obtained a Master’s Degree in Social Work, which allowed me to work with children and their families for several years. When I moved to Utah, I attended the University of Utah and received my Master’s Degree in Psychology.
After finishing school, I worked for several years as a family therapist for Salt Lake County where I counseled families with troubled children and adolescents. I moved to Moab in 2011 and established the mental health service at Moab Regional Hospital. It has been a wonderful experience and I have enjoyed becoming a part of Moab’s community.
My approach to counseling is client-oriented and individualized. I utilize a variety of techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused strategies, and mindfulness. In my experience, no single technique works for everyone, and I enjoy finding the right method for each individual client. I encourage my clients to set their own goals and to provide feedback on their counseling experience.
I strongly believe that every person wants to be the best person they can be. Sometimes, they get stuck, and the coping skills they have used all their life don’t work anymore. That is the time to ask for outside help. Therapy isn’t just for serious mental illness. Many people seek out professional help to navigate life transitions, learn parenting strategies, or acquire healthier coping skills. People are often surprised how quickly change can happen.
