Spencer first came to Ascend as a client in 2009. 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 with clients and observing the transformation from being a broken person to someone living and genuinely enjoying life.

He encourages clients to find joy in sobriety and explore a new way of living. He takes his real-life experiences of addiction as well as his clinical background and works to create a well-rounded approach to working with people find their way.

Spencer received his MSW from Brigham Young University. He is an avid outdoorsman and spends most of his free time hiking, snowboarding, rock climbing and camping with his wife and son.
