Paul Newman, MA, LMFT
Hi, my name is Paul Newman I was born in Logan and raised in Bothwell on a dairy farm where I learned a ton of important lessons. I didn’t stay on the farm and my life has taken several detours, and today I feel I have a lifetime of experiences that I can draw from to help my clients. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Marriage and Family therapy.
Throughout my career as a therapist, I have worked in community clinics, private practice, residential (substance abuse and behavioral), and non-profits. I love working with foster families and post adopt families. My wife and I have five children that we were blessed to fostered and then adopted. I have experience that I can use to help my fostering clients in their journey.
I find great satisfaction in seeing couples renew and reignite their love for each other. I love hearing people’s stories. I feel that challenges often come from the stories we tell ourselves. We will work together to rewrite your story and find the happy ending you have always wanted.
I enjoy using an experiential, strategic, solution-focused approach to help my clients find joy and satisfaction in their lives and relationships. I am trained in Play and Sand Play Child and Adult Therapy. I am also trained in sex therapy and can assist couples in reigniting their love and passion for each other.
I believe that everyone has some strengths within themselves to overcome life’s many obstacles. I have a genuine love for helping people recognize their full potential. I am passionate about helping individuals of all ages in all walks of life.
I am a mother of three and suffered with my own postpartum depression and postnatal PTSD after the birth of my third child. I felt guilt and shame as I suffered silently. I needed therapy, but didn’t know who to talk to. I want to help other mothers going through similar issues.
I received my bachelor’s degree in special education with a severe emphasis from Utah State University. I worked as a special education teacher for seven years. I got to know my students and their families and recognized many of the challenges they faced. I enjoy working with children, especially children who have challenging behaviors.
I want to provide a safe place where clients can tell their stories, navigate their struggles, repair relationships, and unlock their strengths.
