Jared Rich

MFT Intern

Jared uses mindfulness, experiential work, and well-researched therapy methods to help individuals and couples.

Jared Rich is a Marriage and Family Intern. His journey into counseling began as a young teen, attending his father’s Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Witnessing AA members share their stories of despair and transformation left an indelible mark, and he became committed to helping people repair their relationships and lead meaningful lives. After earning a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah, Jared began training in experiential therapy, a unique process that helps clients access and resolve difficult emotions. He used these tools to lead more than 100 experiential classes and short workshops. In these classes, participants practiced techniques for being vulnerable, navigating conflict, and creating deeper connections.

Jared is also passionate about creating spaces where men can celebrate their strengths, open up about their challenges, and support each other to be better husbands, fathers, sons, and community members. He founded and led a men’s group for nearly three years.

The use of mindfulness has been increasing in therapy and popular culture in recent years, and Jared is a long-time practitioner, having attended several 10-day silent meditation intensives, and keeping up a daily practice. He incorporates mindfulness into his work with individuals primarily through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a highly effective modality developed through decades of research.

To provide better care for couples, Jared is currently training in the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. These two models of treatment have been extensively studied over several decades and are considered the gold standard for helping couples to reduce destructive conflict, rebuild friendship and intimacy, and create an inspiring vision of their future.

Jared has completed his content coursework for a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University and will graduate in September 2021. He is a member of the Delta Kappa Honor Society and the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. In his spare time, Jared loves backpacking in the mountains and deserts of the West.

As an intern, Jared participates in supervision with Dr. Branden Henline who can be reached at (928) 830-8501 or branden@sagefc.com.
