Resilience Individual & Family Counseling

Hi, I’m Heidi Applonie. Here’s a little background about me and how started working with people with Selective Mutism: I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work at Utah State University in 2007 and graduated with honors from the University of Utah with a Master of Social Work in 2008.

I began working with children and adolescents providing play therapy and trauma focused therapy. I have 6 years of experience working in the emergency department of Utah Valley Regional Hospital providing crisis intervention for patients and their families. In 2015, I established Resilience Individual & Family Counseling, specializing in psychotherapy with individuals suffering with anxiety, trauma, and mood disorders.

Resilience Camp came as a result of becoming frustrated with a lack of resources in Utah for individuals and families struggling with Selective Mutism. I have watched a relative personally struggle with this disorder without any resources. It was incredibly heartbreaking. It was equally hopeful and inspiring watching the same child discover her strong voice after receiving specialized treatment at a summer program. I was so impressed at how this child overcame her SM that I was inspired to run my own summer camps and implement SM treatment into my practice. We complete an annual summer camp as well as weekly therapy for clients and their families.

In the summer of 2017, we completed our first session of camp and it was fun and amazing to watch every child grow and experience small miracles. Resilience Camp provides specialized intensive treatment for children suffering with this disorder, parental training, and training for mental heath professionals. We expanded out program to provide weekly individual therapy for clients and training for parents. It has become my passion and inspiration to help people with SM develop their brave voices.
