Take a beat

You were either sent here by me to get forms, make an appointment or payment or you’ve happened upon this site by blessed luck.
I am Gabby Acord and I am a clinical psychotherapist in Salt Lake and Davis County. My office is located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in Bountiful Utah.
I have a specialty in couple and family relationships, specifically overcoming the trauma and pain of past relationships to create meaningful and positive connections (including your relationship with yourself) and ultimately finding and giving love.
Pain and trauma can make us fearful and fear can lead us to act out dysfunctional patterns with people we love. We lose trust, become controlling, small-minded and cynical. We fall into habits of managing and feeling responsible for others emotions and behavior. And then we expect others to feel responsible for us. And then we create what we fear most. We make bad decisions, push people away, repeat the same mistakes over and over and lose track of our inner voice.
We all go through it (fearful living) to some extent, but sometimes it becomes disabling and gets in the way of good things; courage, love and joy. (click here for more on this)
There comes a time when we all need a mechanic, a builder or medical doctor to add expertise and experience. A good counselor can help you identify patterns and together find ways to heal hurt, recover and course-correct until you are ready to set out on your merry, enlightened way.
In my work with individuals and couples, I strive to create a safe, respectful environment where you can develop trust, overcome pain, learn to resolve conflict and reach the potential that was meant for you. Learn more…
