Our Team

Liliana Roney, Founder/Director-LCSW

Hello my name is Liliana Roney and I am a LCSW, but more importantly I am a friend. My passion for this field work came after experiencing some really difficult experiences in my life. Finding the right types of treatments such as EMDR, Brain Spotting, Internal Family System and other body work therapies was vital to my physical and emotional healing. As I have learned to incorporate these modalities into my practice I am seeing people find hope again, feel different about their lives perspectives but most important they are graduating from therapy. I look forward to our journey together and your new life after Utah Lakes.

Marquita Dowler - Office Manager

Hello, my name is Marquita and I have the privilege of being the office manager at Utah Lakes Neuroscience Mental Health Center. What I love most about working at Utah Lakes is being part of a compassionate and collaborative team of therapists and staff members. My work day is filled with figuring out how to make our clients’ feel welcomed and valued and how to make sure they, as well as each member of our team, is taken care of. A goal of mine is to become a licensed clinical mental health counselor and working at Utah Lakes has inspired me even more!

I have been on the client side of mental health therapy and finding a kind and effective therapist that I trust has made all the difference. I hope that we, at Utah Lakes, can be that resource for you.

When I am not working behind the scenes at Utah Lakes I enjoy spending time with my husband and 3 daughters, going to soccer games, teaching Zumba® classes at the local rec centers, and studying Psychology and counseling.

Hi, my name is Jeremy. I practice psychotherapy as a clinical mental health counselor. I have a wide-ranging background in this field, working with most mental health concerns. It is important to take into account all aspects of a person, be they within the mind, the body, or socially. I have learned that relationship and connection are both highly important in healing. As seeing everyone as an individual, I like to meet people where they are at. I have been trained and have experience in a variety of modalities, such as psychodynamic psychotherapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Substance Use Disorder treatments, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and more. I believe people can heal and grow with the right conditions, and hope we can work towards that together.

Isaac Halliday, Doctorate of Physical Therapy

Isaac graduated in 2010 from BYU with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and received a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2015 from East Tennessee State University. He has practiced in many states and in multiple settings. He enjoys working with orthopedic and sport injuries the most and believes the key to recovery is to correct alignment faults within joints, improve tissue tolerance, range of motion and strength while listening to the body and staying within its limits. This allows for a pain free recovery and a better quality of life.

Isaac has always been very active and grew up playing many sports. Some of his favorite sports are wrestling, soccer and baseball. Being an athlete himself, he understands what it is like not being able to play a sport due to an injury. However, not every injury should prevent you from participating in the sport you love. Isaac can help you return as quickly as possible to your sport.
