Summit View is a private mental health practice located in Orem, Utah.  We are committed to helping individuals, couples, and families overcome obstacles, addictions, emotional and mental challenges, trauma, depression, anxiety, and more.  We desire for you to live your most fulfilled life, and believe through our help and your hard work, you can get there!


Hi, I'm Brody Bates. I'm the Clinical Mental Health Counselor at Summit View Counseling. I have worked in the mental health field in various capacities and specialties for 14 years. In that time I have come to understand the needs of individuals, couples, and families as they face challenges which can seem overwhelming.

Summit View Counseling  grew out of our recognition that there is a need for qualified and compassionate mental health service providers. I have come to appreciate the impact of evidenced based psychotherapies in helping the clients I work with achieve the results they are seeking. I also recognize the power of being present and flexible as needs in treatment evolve. We are excited to offer both traditional sessions at the office as well as outdoor sessions in our Experiential Program.


With a wide range of experience available, I am confident that if you are suffering with mental health issues, we can help you on your journey to a better, more fulfilling, and satisfying life.

Welcome to Summit View Counseling--

we are happy to have you!


Hi, I'm Mayalene Bates. I am a licensed and certified Recreation Therapist and have worked in the mental health field for over 16 years.  I have seen both recreation therapy and psychotherapy positively change clients daily lives, their outlook, and their hope for the future.  


At Summit View Counseling I work as a Recreation Therapist in our Experiential Program, as well as helping manage the office needs. I enjoy helping others get into nature to find healing, grounding, and direction.  I love many outdoors activities, especially riding my beautiful horses in the mountains around Utah.

Brody and I enjoy our work together, and welcome you to Summit View!
