Mental & Behavioral Health
When anyone talks about mental health, they should include the word balance. Mental health is about balancing out the normal emotions, thoughts and behaviors that we engage in each and every day. Those emotions, thoughts and behaviors only become a problem when they are out of balance. We are meant to experience the ebb-and-flow of happiness, sadness, excitement and disappointment. The goal is to avoid getting stuck in places that do not work for us. If we do become stuck, then, that may be where we need some assistance. Counseling services give an additional resource for knowledge and growth. Give Clear Counseling and Consulting a call at 801.634.7965
CLEAR, approaches treatment from a cognitive-behavior framework. We are focused on developing the effective mechanisms and tools needed in order to establish long-term and lasting change.
Measurement and monitoring progress is key to success.
Clinicians use, when possible, assessment tools to gauge the direction and progress of treatment.
This assists the individual to see and recognize the changes that are occurring, and to not become discouraged when life circumstances may create some struggle or disappointment.
So, what do you want? It is important that you begin to tell yourself that you deserve to be happy. You are capable of success. Life can be full of progression and accomplishment. This is not to say that telling yourself that you deserve to be happy is an easy task, or that you even believe it is possible. But... you have to start! One step at a time will eventually get you to your desired destination. And, if needed, we would love to help you on that journey.
Applied Behavior Analysis
What is behavior analysis or a behavior analyst, and what does it mean for you? ABA, or applied behavior analysis has been established as best practice in working with adults, adolescents and children diagnosed with autism and/or an intellectual disability. ABA is the application of functionally based interventions meant to modify problematic behavior into more functional and socially relevant behaviors. ABA is data or measurement driven, in order to gauge the effectiveness of treatment and establish progress. What does this mean to you? It means that you can count on evidenced-based practices being used on behalf of those that need assistance. That means increased outcomes, positive progress and success for those you care about, and carried out by those qualified to do so.
Behavior analysis is considered to be best practice in addressing problem behaviors with individuals diagnosed with an intellectual disability and autism. Those providing any behavioral services will be board certified behavior analysts (BCBA).
Treatment is a team oriented approach. Team members include family, friends, associates and professionals. Those team members are involved in the development of the behavior support program aimed at assisting the individual in gaining greater skills, increased independence and autonomy (based upon the individuals ability), and decreasing those behaviors hindering that progress.

Parents & Caregivers
There are a kaleidoscope of worries parents take on when they have children. That burden of worry becomes significantly heavier when they have a child with a disability.
Behavior analysis is meant to assist in lifting some of that burden, and aid developing a healthy repertoire of behaviors that are more functional for the child and parents in the home, school and community.
Give us a call. Let's talk about what the options are, and what we can do to help.
Sports & Performance
Mental conditioning is about training athletes at any level and any age to develop the mental strength to overcome the challenges that sports inherently posses. Then taking their specific skill to the next level. Often the focus is on the physical abilities of the athlete, however it is the mental endurance, resiliency and overall conditioning that separates them from the crowd and creates a superior athlete.
Belief in ones self is paramount in over coming the constant challenges that life presents. in athletics it becomes the edge that one athlete has over another. particularly when the other athlete(s) see it.
