About Dylan Wallace
I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Utah and Florida, a qualified clinical social worker (QCSW) through the National Association of Social Workers, and am EMDR trained. I received my masters of social work at University of Pittsburgh with a concentration in mental health and my bachelors in Psychology at University of Utah. Majority of my experience has been working at a nationally renowned addiction treatment center, Hanley Center/Origins Behavioral Healthcare, where I worked for years as a therapist, a program director, and in professional relations. I have years of experience working with a variety of struggles including substance use, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma/PTSD, grief, personality disorders, codependency, attachment, and relationship/family struggles. I also experience supervising MSW interns and therapists in treatment settings. I appeared on iHeart radio where I spoke nationally about the struggles that many young adults face as they transition into adulthood.
I believe in using many different modalities depending on the needs of the client, however I tend to gravitate toward motivational interviewing (MI), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), structural family therapy (SFT), and experiential techniques. I view therapy as a process to help the client live the life that they truly want and believe that each person has inner strengths that can be built upon. Every person has their struggles and I believe in a non-judgmental, non-shaming approach where each person can feel safe enough to get vulnerable with what their particular struggles are. I also believe that therapy is an interactive process and it shouldn’t look the same for each person. I see clients for individual therapy, couples/marital therapy, and family therapy depending on the needs and request of the client.
In my time away from work, you would most likely find me outdoors enjoying biking, hiking, longboarding, or snowboarding with my wife and children.
