Facilitating Meaningful Change and Growth
Red Willow Counseling and Recovery provides individual, family, and couples therapy. We are a group of therapists in Utah that specialize in many different areas. We specialize in substance and process addictions as well as a wide variety of mental illnesses including depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder; and work with mindfulness, spirituality, and religious challenges.
If you or a loved one are in the later stages of life and are looking for help and support, we have a therapist that specializes in elderly mental health issues, crisis intervention, relationship challenges, trauma, physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, substance abuse, physical disabilities, geriatric disorders, grief, bullying, self-esteem, employment counseling, and end-of-life or long-term care.
Sometimes chronic pain or illness can take over your life. The good news is it doesn’t have to. We see people who need help with chronic pain and illness as well as gender issues, trauma, mood disturbance, major life adjustments, grief, relationships, mindfulness and stress management, medical trauma, and mind-body wellness issues.
“I believe therapy is a collaborative effort between the client and therapist. While a person may know what they want, they may not understand how to change. My role as a therapist is to create a safe environment through compassion and non-judgment so that a person can talk about past hurtful events. By confidently talking through the past, a person gains an understanding of what needs to change to create the life they want to be living.”
JAMES OTT, LCSW
“I’m always amazed at the creativity and resilience revealed in the counseling relationship, and I enter into it with immense gratitude! The stories we craft and those which we learn hold the potential to provide great strength or cause us to lose sight of what really matters to us. It is my goal as a counselor to be an ally in the exploration of what truly fits for my clients and to examine how thoughts, language, emotions, and actions either move us toward our authentic selves or cause us to feel stuck. I love working with individuals, couples and groups! I look forward to sharing space with you as we explore how you are creative, not created!”
PAIGE ZUCKERMAN, CMHC
“Ironically, those of us who have suffered the most in this life are uniquely qualified to create and appreciate an existence bursting with joy, contentment, and unbelievable abundance. Because we have survived such painful depths of darkness, we are now exceptionally prepared to thrive in the bright light of what life truly has to offer.”

“A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.”

I feel that everyone deserves to absolutely thrive. Many people enter the world of therapy in a very difficult time, when surviving feels more accurate – this was certainly the case for me. But I believe that difficult times become opportunities. It is my experience that difficulty tends to hold onto you until it has had it’s full way – often longer and harder than you wanted or thought you could stand. During these times of tremendous difficulty and growth, what we think, HOW we think is so important. Things can get better – drastically better. To be trusted to be a part of that conversation with someone is an honor, and one I take seriously.

“ I believe that therapy is a dynamic, engaging, and co-created process. It
involves some heavy lifting. You are the expert on your life. My commitment is to partner with you throughout the therapeutic journey bringing curiosity and empathy as a professional and fellow human.”
