Over 7 years ago, we launched Utah Family Therapy with the mission of compassion, connection, and healing. We embraced working with clients experiencing issues from needing a marriage boost, to intense trauma and crisis. We knew that when clients addressed shame and felt compassion, they would feel safe to work through their core issues.

Core traumas and negative beliefs hold progress and healing hostage.

We noticed that some clients needed more help than just weekly therapy. (For example individuals with severe depression, anxiety, and mental health challenges including suicide attempts and post-hospitalization; unable to maintain the school, family, or work-life balance. Post-residential treatment adjustment. Weekly therapy simply wasn’t enough.

We could not find an Intensive Outpatient Program for these clients. Many clinics have drug only or dual diagnostic programs, however, they don’t work with other mental health issues.

We decided to fill the gap and begin a Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program that embraces Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Personality Disorders, and other debilitating mental illnesses.

We incorporate weekly Group Therapy, individual sessions, Family Groups, and Health and Wellness. All focused on connection and healing core traumas and shame. And yes, we take most insurances

We hope you will consider Utah Family Therapy for your Mental Health IOP Program.

How Our IOP is Different

Utah Family Therapy’s Trauma (IOP Program) was created for individuals with anxiety, trauma, depression, and OCD whose needs have not been met through weekly individual or group therapy.

In most cases, underlying trauma may be contributing to anxiety, OCD, and depression symptoms.

As part of our IOP Program, we assign a trauma-informed Individual Therapist Advocate (ITA) who sees each client through their therapeutic process, including IOP Groups and Family Treatment.

Every client will work one-on-one with a qualified trauma-informed therapist to help their brain and body process the traumatic experiences that may be contributing to their anxiety, depression, and OCD

In the words of a former client, “I finally feel joy and hope again.

With a rolling intake process, our goal is to get clients in as quickly as possible to start healing your trauma.

Our Method Compassion and Connection

Our IOP Program is designed with the main focus of compassionate healing, without shame, and judgment. Each individual has a journey that they’re going through and we focus on helping you in yours. Compassion and connection is key to the success of our program as one client said,

“My anxiety just melts away when I come here. I just love this place. I feel so relaxed”


Honestly, we could not think of a better compliment we could have received and then some of the parents said this:

“I don’t know what you’re doing here but it’s working. I’ve never seen my [child] so happy and confident. They just love coming here and is even considering going to school locally so they can continue to come here for therapy.”


“My child wants to keep coming and they’ve never stuck with anything longer than two weeks. Your program works.”


“I look forward to coming to your parent’s group it’s been really helpful for me and my family.”


We work hard to create an environment for our clients to experience safety, compassion, empathy, and growth. We expect the same level of hard work from our clients. 

Follow these simple steps to start healing:

  1. Take out your cell phone.
  2. Call 801.901.0279.
  3. Schedule an assessment.
  4. Healing has already begun by believing in yourself.

°After the initial assessment, if the therapist feels like an older 18yr old or a younger 19yr old would be better in the youth or adult IOP program, they will be placed accordingly. Therefore, we reserve the right to place a youth where we feel they would heal and grow the quickest.
