My goal is to help people improve their lives and their relationships. I believe in the process of therapy. If you have a desire to grow and work on yourself, come in and let’s make change happen. My focus is on helping people work to become more assertive and confident. I also help people overcome anger, past trauma, PTSD, depression, stress and anxiety. I also specialize in working with couples to improve their relationship.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have over 15 year of experience as a clinical therapist. I love what I do and take great effort to become the best therapist I can in order to be of the most benefit to my clients. I founded Eagle Mountain Counseling in 2013. I am the clinical director and owner. My goal is to offer excellent mental health services to those living in the Eagle Mountain/Saratoga Springs area. We have worked hard to make it possible for people can access their insurance benefits.

Approaches to Therapy:
I use CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) which is an evidenced based intervention to change our unhealthy thought processes. I also use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help clients work through past trauma and current triggers. I use PE Therapy (Prolonged Exposure Therapy) which is another way to work on trauma. I am also trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy) and use this approach to work with couples who struggle with unhealthy interactive cycles.
Education and Training:
I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science from Utah Valley University in 2001. Then went on to earn a Master’s in Social Work at the University of Utah in 2004. I am fully certified in EMDR therapy. I am also a CIT consultant in EMDR. I am also trained in PE (Prolonged Exposure Therapy) and EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy).
“I’ve been working with Darren at EM Counseling and I have nothing but great things to say. We have been using EMDR and have made great progress in helping me deal with some painful issues. Darren creates a safe space to talk about things and is very solution oriented. I can’t recommend him enough. Thanks Darren!”
“Eagle Mountain Counseling is a great place! I loved going here, and just talking. It’s been a really great experience with Darren. He has a great attitude and cares a lot. It’s really cool to see sometimes what out don’t know about yourself, until you talk about it aloud.”
