Anxiety is a common mental health condition that can significantly impact a person and daily life. For some individuals, just the thought of getting through the day produces intense levels of anxiety. No matter what they do, they cannot seem to stop the worry and often feel it is out of their control. They might anticipate disaster or be overly concerned about money, health, family, work, or other issues.Learn more
Depression has been nick-named the “common cold of mental illness.” The statistics can be startling; however, it is useful to pause and become aware of the impact of depression on society in general. Depression affects approximately 20 million Americans, or about 10% of the population in any given one-year period. At some point in their lives, 10%-25% of women and 5%-12% of men will likely become clinically depressed.Learn more

Using this model, the therapist recognizes that strong emotional bonds are essential for individual and family well-being. EFFT operates on the important premise that distress and conflict within families often stem from unmet emotional needs and ineffective communication patternsLearn more

Frequently Asked Questions
Determining how long a client will be in therapy will be considered individually based upon your needs. After your therapist assesses and determines your treatment plan, they will schedule an ongoing appointment day and time. Your therapist will then review the duration and length of time for therapy based upon your customized plan and progress.
Yes. All our therapists are trained and experienced in providing telehealth sessions. If you are meeting for couples therapy, we highly recommend each partner be in the same room and on the same computer screen for the best and most effective treatment.
We require payment at the time of service; however, we offer superbills that you submit to your insurance company to seek reimbursement. The superbill contains all the information needed including billing codes, diagnostic codes, your therapist’s credentials and license information. It is essential to get help when needed, and we want to work with you to achieve affordable solutions based on your financial circumstances.
Relationship challenges and mental illness issues impacts every member of the family, as well as those close to them. Our therapists are trained to work
with all those within the client’s circle influence. We encourage family members to participate in the treatment process, and your therapist will likely encourage both individual and family sessions.
We have a unique offering of intensive couples therapy, which gives us the opportunity to work with clients from all parts of the world as long as they are willing to travel to the state of Utah. Non-Utah residents can only meet with our therapists if they are physically within the state boundaries or remotely via telehealth if their Utah resident family member is present in the session. State law requires that therapists can only offer treatment services for residents or visitors of the state in which they are licensed. If you are moving to another state, your therapist is allowed to meet with you for a interim period to assist in the transition to your new home and new therapist.
Interns at The EFT Counseling and Education Center are carefully selected based on very important criteria. They must have excelled in their graduate studies, and demonstrated a high level of wisdom, insight, with a deep understanding of systems theory. They must undergo a rigorous interview process to determine if they are a good fit for our mission
and vision as a mental health and education center. We remain closely connected to deans and directors of training within each university, which allows us to have utmost confidence in the candidates who successfully achieve a placement within our clinic.
An intern or student therapist is typically in their second year of their masters degree, and at this point the intern has been in a formal college setting for at least 5 years or more. They have studied graduate level courses including human development, relationship dynamics, and how to work with beyond just the individual client to include a systemic view of the client’s world. The therapist in training starts as an intern to gain valuable experience and first-hand training. In this role, the intern works under the supervision of either Dr. Debi Gilmore or Dr. Rebecca Jorgensen, and thus the intern is fully authorized and trained to provide services to families and individuals.
