Therapy for Trauma

Trauma is the result of experiencing a perceived, extremely distressful event. Although the stress threshold for each person differs, meaning that each person considers and experiences trauma differently, it is an event that tops one’s threshold. It exceeds one’s ability to cope or emotionally process. Symptoms may include shock, anxiety, confusion, hopelessness, feeling disconnected, mood swings, nightmares, and intrusive thoughts. Working with a therapist who specializes in trauma may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality of life.

Finding Therapists, Counselors, and Psychologists in Utah

Finding a therapist in Utah may be easier in cities like Salt Lake City, West Valley City, or West Jordan. If you’re in a more rural area or if a therapist with a specific specialty isn't nearby, online therapy might be a suitable alternative. 

Out-of-pocket costs for therapy in Utah typically range between $75 and $185 per session. For couples counseling and family therapy, the costs are likely to be in a similar range. It's essential to be aware that the first appointments with a therapist might be slightly longer and more expensive. Specialized services may also cost more than average.

There are currently over 7,000 counselors working in Utah with licenses, including Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT), Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC), and Psychologists (Ph.D. and Psy.D.). 

If you believe you might be eligible for free or reduced-cost services from the state, it's a good idea to explore local resources to see if you qualify for Medicaid.
