Uinta Academy

Uinta Academy is owned and directed by a licensed clinician. Clinicians make the frontline decisions that determine the quality and efficacy of care at Uinta because they have the technical knowledge needed to make sound strategic choices about treatment. When parents make that initial call to Uinta to discuss their daughter, they speak to a licensed clinician. The clinical leadership at Uinta has shaped the professional identity and sense of dedication for all staff at Uinta.

There is no substitute for experience. It takes many years of experience to develop the style, proficiency and therapeutic tools necessary to assist adolescents in meaningful ways. The founders, Jeff and Becky Simpson, each have over 35 years of experience working with youth and families. They have gathered a team of Masters and Ph.D. level clinicians and educators who all have significant, extensive experience working with families and helping young people. Young women facing complicated issues need a team that can draw on their experience to develop effective, individualized treatment strategies and problem solve through complex issues and diagnosis.


All we though she was capable of achieving is now happening! This would not have been accomplished without the love and support she received at Uinta Academy.
