Spencer graduated in 2017 from Brigham Young University with a Masters of Social Work. He first came to Ascend as a client, another Alumni we feel so honored to be added to our clinical team. In working through his own trials in treatment he discovered that he wanted to help others through the journey of recovery and decided to become a therapist. Spencer enjoys working directly with clients and has a passion for all things experiential.  He encourages clients to find joy in sobriety and explore a new way of living. He takes his real-life experiences of addiction and combines it with his clinical background to works to create a well-rounded approach to help clients find their own way. Spencer has been with Ascend since 2011.

He is an avid outdoorsman and spends most of his free time hiking, snowboarding, rock climbing and camping with his wife, son, and daughter.
