Our Founder

Wasatch Family Therapy, LLC was founded in 2002 by  Dr. Julie Hanks, LCSW. Since then it has continued to grow and become known as a respected provider of therapy services for children, women, couples, and families.

Over 15 years ago I dreamed of creating a clinic by gathering a group of skilled, professional, and energetic therapists to work together and provide not only excellent therapy, but also create a warm and home-like environment for clients.  I only hire people who posses a genuineness in their interpersonal interactions and who feel a “calling” to their profession as a therapist.  One of the core values of Wasatch is that we respect and support of your spiritual beliefs in all of the services we provide.

Our Mission

  • To improve individual mental health and strengthen family relationships by:
  • Providing competent and compassionate counseling services to individuals, couples, and families with diverse backgrounds.
  • To offer therapeutic services that promote the emotional and relational well-being of individuals, couples, and families.
  • Providing community education to reduce the stigma of those seeking professional help for mental health and relationship problems.
  • To honor the spiritual beliefs and values of each client throughout the therapeutic process.

Our Philosophy

  • We view life as a series of developmental stages that individuals, couples, and families move through toward growth. At times, professional help may be needed to successfully navigate these stages.
  • We believe that early childhood relationships create patterns that impact how we feel about ourselves and how we relate with others.
  • We address current problems and symptoms with skill building and insight while exploring and resolving past relationship patterns and wounds.
  • We understand that the primary factor in the change process is a warm, trusting relationship between client and therapist.
  • We use a gentle but direct approach to therapy and individualize the process to address your specific concerns.
