Orem, Utah: The Arise Society is delighted to welcome Jeff Larson to the clinical team as our Primary Therapist. With more than 15 years of experience as a therapist for young adults and adolescents, he has gained a strong reputation in a referral-driven industry.
His extensive experience includes working with Valley Mental Health's Adolescent Day Care Unit, Second Nature Wilderness Program, the Intensive Outpatient Program at Wasatch Youth Support Systems, Life Matters Counseling, as a substance abuse and mental health evaluator for court-referred youth, with Avalon Health Care, Inc. and Vista Counseling Services’ young adult transitional program.
Jeff understands the issues facing today's young adults, which include behavioral problems, mood and anxiety disorders, self-esteem issues, trauma and abuse, personality disorders, family discord, bereavement, substance abuse and identity issues. “I have more than 11 years of practice specifically in transitional programming as well as an outpatient program, almost exclusively working with college-aged students,” he said. “I've worked with this population for a long time.”
His therapeutic expertise and versatility extend beyond traditional office sessions. He is also familiar with local colleges and guidance staff, and collaborates regularly with academic professionals, disability resource center support staff and employment organizations. He is adept at helping his students push through obstacles and uses his experience to guide students and families in need of intervention. “I relish the moments when I see my students find success and navigate life's challenges. It is important to build relationships with them, have them know that you are genuine, and that you truly do care about their growth and well-being, even when they are struggling and making mistakes.”
Vaughn Heath, PhD, Founder and Clinical Director of The Arise Society added, “We are happy to have Jeff as part of the Arise Society’s team. He comes to us with an incredible amount of experience working with young adults and their families. He is an expert in helping them navigate the many challenges during the transition to independent college life.”
“I love the setting that The Arise Society creates because my greatest strength is integrating myself into a student’s life. I believe that meeting and engaging with them in their environment on a regular basis is critical to getting real, sustained results,” says Jeff.
