Why We're Different
The Boyle Difference
Dr. Boyle is one of the regions best trained and most experienced relationship experts.
Dr. Boyle has a masters degrees and Ph.D in marriage and family therapy. Most in the profession only have a 2-year masters degree. Dr. Boyle received an additional 5-years of Ph.D education beyond the typical training that most receive with a masters degree. This has provided him with significant additional expertise that can benefit relationships.
Dr Boyle’s counseling experience covers both depth and breadth. He has worked with some the most challenging couples and families as well as individuals experiencing severe mental illness. He has years of experience educating others through classes, presentations, and training. Dr. Boyle has shared his expertise by providing education/training to the community, to other professionals, and teaching for the Department of Family Studies and Human Services at Kansas State University; and supervising other marriage and family therapists as an Approved Supervisor with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. Dr Boyle was also one of 6 directors for a mental health organization that covered 10 counties in Kansas. Dr Boyle’s depth and breadth of experience uniquely qualifies him to understand a broad range of relationship and mental health challenges that many counselors and consultants do not have.
Dr. Boyle is a licensed marriage and family therapist. There are four different types of therapist/counselor licenses that allow counselors to provide relationship counseling in Utah including: marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, social workers, and psychologists. Most of these licenses do not require a single hour of training or supervised experience assisting couples and families. However, to qualify to receive the exclusive license as a marriage and family therapist, one is required to complete comprehensive relationship graduate school education and at least 2,500 hours of supervised experience treating relationships, couples, and family issues.

He has helped nearly every type of relationship through nearly every type of challenge, so he is uniquely qualified to help you find the hope and direction you need in your important relationships. He will be the last one to give up on your relationship.
