Allison has been a Nurse Practitioner since 1980. She received a Master’s degree in Pediatric Nursing in 1985. Subsequently, she spent several years working with homeless families and developed the current pediatric health care program that exists today at Salt Lake City’s 4th Street Clinic.
She’s also worked with children who suffer from asthma teaching them self-management skills. Allison spent time training rural public health nurses to identify at-risk children using developmental screening tools.
Allison enjoys third world non-profit work. When her children were teenagers, she and her family traveled to South America during summer breaks to provide needed health care to under-served communities.
Over the years, Allison became more interested in the psycho-social dynamics of families, returning to graduate school in 2007 to hone those skills. She received a Post Master’s Certificate in Psychiatric Nursing. Allison is also trained in EMDR therapy.
In 2010, Allison was walking in the woods with her dog and realized how much she needs time in the outdoors to clear her head and gain perspective on her own life. She had a light bulb moment and thought, “I am going to walk and talk with my clients.” Trailtalk was born.
Xander grew up in Canada working on his family farm. He traveled to the U.S. after graduating from High school and discovered the great State of Utah, which he now calls home.
Like most Utahans’, the beauty and rejuvenating impact of the mountains call to him. Many of his family members subsequently followed him here.
Xander pursued higher education at the University of Utah where he received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, followed by a Master of Science in Clinical Social Work.
For the last ten years, he’s worked in a variety of diverse settings providing mental health services to people from all different walks of life.
Xander values his downtime and heads to the mountains when he’s not walking and talking with Trailtalk® clients or working as the clinical director of a trauma recovery nonprofit. His unique set of skills and varied interests complement our Trailtalk® team.
Xander sees clients on Fridays and Saturdays.

Rachel Turnbow graduated from BYU with a B.S. in Human Development and loves working behind the scenes at Trailtalk. As the daughter of an engineer and a school counselor, she has spent a lot of time organizing and analyzing how to make things more efficient. Rachel has many years of experience as an administrative assistant in several different industries but enjoys working in the health and wellness field most as she gets to use her psychology knowledge and organizational skills at the same time.
Rachel grew up spending her summers camping, hiking and fishing from Nevada to Alaska. She now enjoys sharing her love of the outdoors out on the family farm with her husband and their 3 boys. Her greatest joy is being a mom but when she gets a moment to herself, she enjoys cooking, crocheting, or Netflix bingeing.
