Owner/Clinical Director

I’m Kirsten Jacobson, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Layton, UT.  I am here to guide you through life’s most complex and difficult matters. I truly care about my patients’ well-being and guarantee top of the line counseling and psychological services catered to their needs.

I have been in practice since 2010, after graduating from Arizona State University.  With specialized training, I have a focus on treating trauma through the use of EMDR.  

I offer a warm and caring environment to help you feel safe in confronting some of the most difficult things in life.  I am honored to take this journey with you, and am amazed by the resilience I am able to witness in sessions.

When not in session, you will find me working in theater directing music or performing, or hiking the mountains with my little family.

Meet Our Therapists: About Me



As a trauma-informed therapist, I am passionate about helping you overcome the past trauma and find hope in your future again. I have a calming presence and strive to create a safe space where healing can occur. I recognize the challenges many face on their journey and find strength through watching others overcome their adversities and find peace. Change can be hard and I strive to elicit hope as I walk with people and empower them to become their best selves.

My areas of focus includes trauma, grief and loss, anxiety and depression, and relationship struggles. I assist with helping parents who's children who have experienced trauma and helping teach trauma informed parenting approaches. I meet people where they are and believe in creating an individual plan for growth.

I am passionate about working with people who have experienced grief and loss where they can feel heard and validated while developing coping strategies. I strive to create a trusting relationship with those I serve as they become vulnerable with their thoughts and feelings.
