Mwende Mualuko, Psychologist

Mwende Mualuko is a licensed clinical psychologist with a specialization in post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I developed my specialty in treating emotional trauma over the course of 5 years by working with PTSD field experts at the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. I offer gold-standard PTSD interventions endorsed by the National Center for PTSD and American Psychological Association: Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE). I consider this work the foundation for all of my practice and attribute the skills I’ve accumulated to my success in helping those who struggle with major mood disorders and crisis.

I also have a special interest in working with individuals seeking cultural-emotional development and support with faith transitions. I enjoy working with Mormon communities in particular as a result of living and working in the Salt Lake City/Provo areas. I value evidence based therapies that are demonstrated to improve mental heath. I offer multicultural and interfaith therapy services that promote personal growth and overall well-being.
