Andrew Fish, A-CMHC
Andrew is new to the clinical team, but not to Alpine Academy. Andrew began his Alpine career in 2011 as a Social Studies teacher. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in History and a Masters of Arts in Teaching. He recently graduated from the CACREP-accredited Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) program at Adams State University, is EMDR trained, and is now serving as a primary therapist. He is passionate about LGBTQ+ advocacy and allyship.
Many youth come to Alpine Academy believing they are unworthy of love, defined by their mistakes, and destined to live lives shaped by trauma. Andrew is passionate about helping each of his clients transform trauma into resilience, find self-forgiveness while redefining mistakes as opportunities for growth, and discovering—or rediscovering—that they are worthy of love. In short—each client deserves the opportunity to heal, and Andrew is dedicated to providing a safe space for that to happen.
Andrew lives in Salt Lake City and enjoys cultivating beards, painting his nails, and camping, hiking, and exploring Utah’s mountains and red rock deserts with his canine children Pablo and Ruby, a very good boy/red doberman and very naughty catahoula.
