Duane Domino is a newly Licensed MFT! Duane is an alumnus that was part of the first cohort of MFT students at UVU and graduated from the  program in May 2021.  He currently works at Redwood Family Therapy, specializing in high conflict couples and teens. He has been there since 2020 where he completed his clinical hours while in the MFT program.

Duane has been married to his wonderful wife for 29 years. Together they have 5 children -- 3 girls and 2 boys, and one grandson. He is also the caregiver for his parents.

Duane and his wife moved to Utah from Michigan in 2010 to attend BYU. His wife is a nurse and currently works at IMC in Murray. For a number of years, Duane found himself learning how to transition into the role of being a parent of adult children, being an education presenter, volunteering at various places, working at a Domestic Violence shelter, and trying to fit in somewhere. 

He was an education presenter in the Wasatch and Summit School Districts and presented on topics such as child abuse prevention and bully prevention, to name a few. Duane found himself doing what he loved, working in the helping field, but it wasn't what he wanted as a career.

Duane's decision to become a Marriage and Family Therapist came while he had been working and volunteering in the helping field. He realized he needed to further his education to make a career out of what he loved doing. That is when he decided to go back to school to achieve his goal of becoming a therapist. MFT became his goal while working with kids in the afternoon school programs, where he recognized the problems they experienced were systemic. He wanted to be able to help the kids and their families. He chose UVU's MFT program as it came highly recommended by a previous faculty member from BYU.

Duane enjoyed his time at UVU. There were several faculty/staff members who were a positive influence on him. They helped him find his therapy voice, provided a safe space for him as a non-traditional learner, and brought the diversity aspect that he didn't expect living in Utah.  This was a nice surprise for Duane. He also felt peace of mind through the program director, knowing the program would be fine.

Having a cohort was one of his favorite things. He still remains in contact with many of the students from his cohort. He also enjoyed the diversity within the cohort.

Duane enjoys spending time playing basketball and softball.  He loves spending time with family and friends. Duane says he now has a career he is passionate about. In May 2023, Duane received the Associate of the Year Award at the UAMFT Conference.  Congratulations Duane!
