Therapy

Call us at 435-752-8880 to schedule a free screening or crisis appointment. We want the best care for you, so we offer an initial appointment free of charge to briefly discuss your needs and goals, after which we can help connect you with the best resources we know, whether at The Family Place Utah or elsewhere in our community. Please note that if you feel your situation is urgent or you are in crisis, be sure to inform the person answering. For immediate safety concerns, please call 911 or proceed to the nearest Emergency Department.

We focus our therapy services on two general needs in our community: 1) Strengthening family relationships and 2) Healing from trauma. We strive to help families heal, communicate, and increase love and support in their relationships. In treating trauma, we strive to help individuals and families cope with and recover from the effects of abuse and other crimes. We provide individual counseling, marriage and family therapy, and a wide array of group therapy and workshops. We welcome military and refugee families and are able to provide services in Spanish and English, as well as other languages with the assistance of interpreter services. For qualified victims of crime, we can provide additional advocacy and assistance.

If you or your family are experiencing problems with any of the following, we may be able to help:
\

Trauma experienced by yourself or a loved one, including crime victimization.

\

Parent-child or other family relationships with children and teens

\

Marriage communication or relationship quality

\

Mental health challenges that affect family relationships (for example, depression and anxiety that impacts your family)

We welcome refugee, military, and immigrant families, as well as others with a variety of needs. We will do what we can to help you with your unique situation. We invite you to explore the services we offer as listed below.

How are therapy services paid for at The Family Place Utah?

We offer some therapy services for free to individuals and families if we have funds to meet their specific needs and situations. Other services are offered for a fee which can often be billed to your insurance company (see below). Those in need of services not covered by these options are eligible for a self-pay discount rate. You may have options for other assistance in paying for services. We accept payment from clergy (e.g., wards/bishops), employers, or other 3rd parties, for all or part of therapy services – simply fill out a 1-page agreement. If we have funding to do so, we also offer a sliding scale discount based on household income and family size. Regardless of your situation, the place to begin is to come for a free initial screening to learn more.

Insurance

We accept most insurances, but not all. There may be a wait time before a covered provider can be available to serve you. If you want your insurance to cover the cost of therapy services, please bring your insurance card with you to your initial free screening appointment so we can make a copy. Note that the cost of services remains the responsibility of the person receiving services or their guarantor (for example, parent of a child receiving services). If an insurance plan does not cover services, including amounts toward deductibles, coinsurances, and copays, the person receiving those services or their guarantor will need to pay the cost.

This includes paying for services your insurance policy does not cover, which can be the case with relationship counseling at times. If your insurance policy does not provide coverage, or you cannot afford amounts not covered by your insurance policy, you may be eligible for other options for covering costs of therapy services at The Family Place Utah.
