About Us

Breakthrough Therapy is dedicated to helping individuals and families achieve results or reach their mental health goals. We approach therapy with an open mind and work with each person to acknowledge challenges and communicate proper ways to overcome those. Two prominent foundational approaches Logan uses in his sessions are Cognitive Therapy and one or more of the Psychodynamic Therapy approaches.

Jessica Buckholz

Jess is our Marriage and Family Therapy intern. She is completing her Masters Degree at Dixie State University and is passionate about working with families and children. She draws inspiration from her own family: her husband, and two kids. When you see Jess, first and foremost you will be heard. She implements a collaborative approach full of open communication to help you reach your goals. 

When Jess isn’t seeing clients or in school, she loves to hike and be outside in our beautiful Southern Utah. Cooking and baking is her own form of self care, but the cleanup afterwards isn’t her favorite. She has a German Shepherd puppy that she is training to become a therapy dog. Jess has no rhythm and is a horrible dancer, but still loves to try. “

Haley has been able to stay at home with her kids for the last five years, but it's hard to keep her away from a good business opportunity. With a degree in biology and experience in administration, business, web design and more she feels lucky to have a part-time gig assisting Logan in Breakthrough Therapy. 

Haley enjoys playing board games, baking cakes, reading and playing with her 3 kids.

More About Logan's Therapy Techniques

"In general, my approach in therapy is using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, helping the individual learn to recognize thought patterns and how to restructure these which in turn improves the emotional response and allow for a greater ability to manage behavior as well, and then, if appropriate and necessary, I blend/combine a psychodynamic approach which will help the individual become more aware and conscious of the underlying concerns from past experience that influences them consciously and subconsciously. These approaches then ultimately lead to allowing you to integrate information from both past and present to be more mindful and in control of your thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

"Some alternative therapies I use include EMDR- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (Trauma & PTSD) and Exposure Therapy (Trauma, OCD, Phobias), Motivational Interviewing (Substance abuse, Addictions, teens), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (Anxieties, OCD, Depression), and Mindfulness (Anxiety, Panic attacks, Depression, Grief, Sleep issues), as well as the Gottman Method for couples therapy."            -Logan
