My name is Clark Hammond, and I am a Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT) licensed in the state of Utah. I earned a master’s degree in Marriage & Family Therapy from Brigham Young University, and a non-clinical doctorate degree from Oregon State University (Human Development & Family Studies, with an emphasis on Family Enterprise).
I have been fortunate over my 20+ year career to work with hundreds of clients in a variety of settings. My MFT background helps me better understand the larger context when working with individuals. From private practice, residential treatment, young adult transition programs, to wilderness therapy, I have witnessed countless victories that come from rising above challenges and experiencing the growth and fulfillment we all hope for. I have also taught for nearly 8 years as a core faculty member in a graduate program training Clinicial Mental Health Counselors.
I continue in my private work, but I want to do more. In today’s world, technology provides meaningful opportunities to access a variety of services – more important now than ever before.
I am very client-centered in my approach, and see therapy as a truly collaborative process. In addition to the clinical approaches listed below, I glean from the fields of Positive Psychology and systems theory in this work. As “fellow travelers” along this journey of life, we all need support along the way. It’s an honor for me to share the road.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Family conflicts, Intimacy-related issues, Career difficulties, Depression, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy

Clark is a great listener and Therapist. His ideas for moving forward and dealing with life challenges are really helpful and his attitude towards the tough situations is empathetic and kind. A great guy and certainly someone who you can trust.
He is very professional and observes the obvious client-patient confidentiality.
I wish he could take on one of my family members as he has a great way with people.
A great asset to the Better Help team.
