Riverton Counseling Therapy

Haley Hawkins, CSW

About Haley:

Haley attended Brigham Young University, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in psychology. Then she relocated to the Salt Lake valley where she earned a Master of Social Work from the University of Utah in 2023.

Haley’s favorite things about the state are being close to family and nestled within Utah’s beautiful mountain ranges. Haley is trained and experienced in a wide array of treatment techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused CBT, emotion-focused therapy (EFT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), Gottman therapy, Bowenian family therapy, and narrative therapy.

Her favorite part of the job is working with kids to help them learn about themselves in a positive, healthy, and supportive environment. She has a special passion for helping kids navigate trauma and come out the other side through positive psychology.

When she’s not at work, you might find Haley enjoying Chinese food and reading or watching Harry Potter and looking for words to live by. 

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” Dumbledore said that, and it’s pretty great.

Parent Feedback

We love Families First! We have been going there for 9 years. We have even moved a few hours away from the nearest location, but we still go there! Dr. Zarbock has been the best provider for our kids. They get excited when we get to go to his office, even when scary shots are in order! He is so attentive, understanding, and fun; he knows how to connect with his patients. We have never had a bad experience at any location or with any of the other providers. They truly care about children's well being.
