WASATCH PSYCHOLOGY ASSOCIATES
Clinical and Consulting Psychology Practice of Dr. Bruce Poulsen
I have nearly 30 years of experience providing evidence-based, psychological services focused on improving relationships, personal fulfillment, and a sense of well-being. My practice is in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I see patients in person or through telehealth. See my Psychology Today page to see if I am currently accepting new patients for psychotherapy. Contact me to check my availability for assessment and consultation.
"Life can only be understood backward; but it must be lived forward."
I provide psychological assessment, psychotherapy, and consultation at my office located in the Liberty Heights neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah. In addition to being licensed to practice psychology in Utah, I have an E.Passport for providing telehealth services in 27 other states.
I see patients of all ages for diagnostic testing and evaluation. Such an assessment is often needed for diagnosing a specific learning or neurodevelopmental disorder, autism spectrum disorder, general intellectual abilities, personality functioning, or specific mental health condition. I also provide consultation to primary care physicians, school officials, court personnel, and other professionals.
Psychotherapy is a relational form of treatment that provides psychological healing by increasing a sense of well-being and reducing discomfort and distress. I provide an evidenced-based approach that is grounded in contemporary psychodynamic theory and research. Psychological distress is often related to habitual ways of perceiving and interacting with the world--ways that have protected and helped in the past, but now get in the way of living a more satisfying, enjoyable, and meaningful life.
My practice also includes consultation at individual, group, and organizational levels. I consult with educational, business, and nonprofit organizations. Such consultation includes assessing fitness for duty among employees, providing psychological expertise in business strategy and innovation, and promoting a more psychological healthy workplace. Please contact me for more information about this aspect of my practice.
