Jennifer Morrill

Clinical Psychologist, PhD
Owner and Founder

Dr. Morrill earned her Bachelor’s degree in Human Development from the University of California Riverside, then moved to Utah where she earned her Master’s degree in Psychology from BYU and her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of Utah. Dr. Morrill has worked in the mental health field since 1999 and as a licensed Clinical Psychologist since 2006. Her work settings have afforded her a variety of clinical and assessment experiences, and have included Primary Children’s Medical Center, the University of Utah Counseling Center and Disability Resource Center, Salt Lake Community College Skills Center, University of Utah Neuropsychiatric Institute, Utah State Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, and Provo Canyon School. Dr. Morrill currently works full-time with the Psychology Department at the Utah State Hospital in Provo.

At Utah Psychological Associates, she works primarily with adolescent patients, and with presenting problems including depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, attachment disorders, pain management, and illness and disability issues. She also performs psychological evaluations for a variety of purposes.

Dr. Morrill was born and raised in Southern California, but often spent summers and holidays in Utah with extended family. As an adult she moved to Utah to attend graduate school and, while she could live without the snow, is proud to call Utah home. She believes her career path has largely been shaped by her own experiences of living with a chronic illness and disability since she was a toddler. In her free time Dr. Morrill enjoys reading, crafting, watching college and NBA basketball, and spending time with family and friends.

Brooklyn Cook

Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CMHC)

CMHC and National Certified Counselor (NCC) committed to helping clients feel their best at any phase of life. She received her Masters from the University of West Georgia in Professional Counseling with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health and Professional School Counseling and received her Bachelors in Psychology from Brigham Young University. Brooklyn has experience working with pre-teens, adolescents, and adults and has had extensive training in suicide prevention/intervention, depression, anxiety, trauma, thinking disorders, eating disorders/body image, and self-esteem.

Brooklyn works from a humanistic and relational perspective, where she emphasizes viewing the client holistically within their cultural and relational context and focuses on healing through an eclectic and person-centered format. She also favors cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness strategies.

Starting therapy can be a big step, but Brooklyn believes that therapy is for everyone and that finding the right therapist is crucial to the process. She hopes to offer an empathetic nonjudgmental place for clients and to build a therapeutic relationship where clients feel safe, heard, and valued.


Brooklyn was raised in Carrollton, Georgia but has lived and worked in Utah on and off for several years. Since getting married, Brooklyn and her husband have settled in Utah and have been enjoying the wonderful outdoors this state has to offer. She has a rescue dog, two guinea pigs, a betta fish, and too many plants. Brooklyn enjoys hiking, painting, crocheting, and reading in her spare time.
