Matthew Bartlett, M.Ed, LMFT
I was introduced to the field of Marriage and Family Therapy after being newly married and immediately connected to their core philosophies. I have found a profession that not only honors people as people but also sees them as the solution and not the problem.
I started working with clients in 2003 after graduating with a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Oregon. It has been my privilege to work with individuals, couples, families, groups and small businesses. I have seen the power of therapy in residential treatment centers, private practice, and home-based services. I have had the opportunity to work with many clients across the nation and internationally.
It is through these experiences that I have become an expert in working with at-risk teens and young adults dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, adoption/attachment, addiction, school refusal, self-harm, suicidality, oppositional behavior, transitions to college, and failure to launch. I also specialize in working with couples struggling with marital conflict, divorce, spiritual discord, blended families, and the stress surrounding infertility treatment.
I enjoy walking alongside my clients and creating a safe place to expand what is comfortable and known without pushing to a place of panic or self-sabotage. This is the area of growth that can only occur through a trusting relationship.
Please contact me if I can be of assistance to you, your marriage, your family, or to anyone in the community.

Dave Archer, LMFT
Dave takes a relationally-driven, client-centered approach to the therapeutic process. He firmly believes that everyone can change and heal from whatever challenges or struggles that caused them to seek help and support. When a client feels heard, validated, and is connected with their therapist, it empowers them to make the changes they need to lead to a happier, more fulfilling life. He believes in a systems-oriented approach that helps clients examine all of the contributing factors to their challenges, and learn how to best overcome them.
Dave graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Communications, and later continued his education at Argosy University, where he completed a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.
Dave has worked as a Clinical Director and Primary Therapist in both residential and outpatient settings, and was a live-in family teacher. With a decade of experience in the mental health treatment field, Dave has been certified in multiple treatment modalities, such as Brainspotting and the Teaching Family Model, and has been able to help countless numbers of individuals and families work through difficult and traumatic experiences. He has an exceptional ability to compassionately and expertly support and guide individuals through the challenges of life and has also served as a mentor to others in the field.
In his free time, he enjoys golf, soccer, baseball, watching movies, traveling, and spending time with his family and three dogs.
Please contact Dave if he can assist you, your marriage, your family, or anyone in the community.
Dani Green, Therapist Intern
The decision to become a therapist was a personal one for Dani. After 29 years of marriage and raising 3 kids, Dani has found a new calling in life reconnecting marriage and family relationships. She has personally experienced situations where she needed expert help to guide her through the maze and has emerged resilient and empowered.
While she loves working with couples and individuals, she has also found a passion for helping clients heal from trauma. It is her belief that almost everyone has experienced trauma at some point in life. Trauma is processed by the brain and the body completely differently than the way the brain processes a healthy, happy experience. Understanding this and working with the client to guide the process, healing from trauma is possible and sustainable.
Dani enjoys meeting her clients where they are, with the beliefs and circumstances that have shaped the experiences in their lives. She recognizes the strengths already within individuals, and acknowledges that clients are the experts in their own life.
In her spare time, Dani loves to ride motorbikes in the desert sand with her family. She loves the mild climate that Southern Utah has to offer, as well as the bright, hot sun. She enjoys refurbishing old furniture and is often found taking a brisk walk with their family’s Golden Retriever, Gus.
Please contact Dani if she can assist you, your marriage, your family, or anyone in the community.
Laura Britt, Therapist Intern
Laura spent her undergraduate years at Southern Utah University earning a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and an Associates degree in Science. Later, she continued her education at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. While there, she earned a graduate certificate in Child and Adolescent Psychology and continued forward working on a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
While completing her education, she worked for 14 years in the Operating Room as a supervisor in the Sterile Processing department. She learned many skills in this work including leadership, communication, and a strong work ethic. Throughout her life she has worked with many types of personalities and cultures and respects others beliefs, abilities, and potential.
Everyone goes through difficult times. A therapeutic relationship gives people an opportunity to explore their thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behavior. It can also help develop and learn new coping skills and techniques to better manage daily stressors and symptoms associated with mental health.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family. She loves music and baseball, and enjoys getting out and being active. Some of her favorite pastimes are biking, hiking, going to the beach in the summer, and snowboarding during the winter months. She loves the sunshine!
