Jameson Holman

Jameson HolmanThere are often times where we as human beings wish for the difficult times to be few and far between and in the words of the wise wizard Gandalf, “all desire this who live to see such times but that is not for us to decide, all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us”. That has been my guiding philosophy in life and has inspired me to pursue a career in marriage and family therapy. As a licensed associate marriage and family therapist, I am excited not only for the opportunity to continue my training but to also help you get to the place you want to be. Robert Plant said it best in Stairway to Heaven, “Yes there are two paths you can go by but in the long run there’s still time to change the road you’re on”. The road towards change will inevitably lead to many forks along the way but it is the time spent forging your own path that makes it a journey worthwhile. I look forward to traveling on that journey with you while providing the best therapy possible.
Jameson received his Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Mississippi State University and his Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University in Draper, Utah. Jameson lives with his lovely wife and beautiful daughter in the Salt Lake Valley and enjoys being creative in his spare time as the front-man and principal lyricist of his band American Hollow and acting in independent short films.
