About New Beginnings
New Beginnings Therapy was created with you in mind. We've spent years listening to what makes our clients' experience in therapy the best and most effective. New Beginnings has been hand-crafted and is improved daily to make you feel comfortable, supported, and heard. New Beginnings is constantly growing and changing, just like you. If there is ever anything we can do to make your experience better, don't hesitate to tell us! Here, your voice matters.
At New Beginnings, we specialize in several important areas: Women's mental, emotional, and relational health, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, body image issues, perfectionism and people-pleasing, trauma, and couples therapy for a wide variety of marital and couple issues.
New Beginnings was opened in Logan, UT in September of 2018 by Dr. Carly LeBaron. Serving the amazing people of Cache Valley runs her blood; her family has been doing business in Cache Valley for almost 100 years. Her great-grandfather, Al Larsen, founded Al's Sporting Goods in 1921, just one block away from our office in Century Square. Her grandfather, Darwin Larsen, founded Al's Trophies & Frames in 1954 and her father, Vint Larsen, still runs it today. She is incredibly proud to be a 4th generation small business owner here in the heart of Logan.
Meet Our Staff
Dr. Carly LeBaron, Ph.D., LMFT
I've been working with my amazing clients for over eleven years in both Utah County and Cache County. I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology at Utah State University (Go Aggies!) and my Master's and Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy at BYU. I've been privileged to work in a community clinic, a women's center, and several group private practices before opening New Beginnings. I also published my first book in 2017, "Shattering the Porcelain: Overcoming Perfectionism and People-Pleasing and Becoming the Real You." I'm completely biased, but I have the best job in the world and it's an honor to meet and work with my clients.
I am married to my best friend and we have three incredible sons and a dog named Bandit. I love to write, cook, bake, read, go hiking and camping, landscape, and be outside. I'm a total foodie and yoga enthusiast! Right now, I'm trying to learn to play the piano and working hard every day to be my authentic self. Come grow with me!
Madeleine Pugmire, MSW, CSW-I
I have always had a passion for helping others reach their full potential and I am excited to be working my dream job! One of the most important goals for me, as a therapist, is to break the stigma attached to seeking treatment. I firmly believe we are not broken and need fixing, but are hurt and need healing. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science from Utah Valley University and my Master’s degree in Social Work from Utah State University. I have had the privilege to work with children, adolescents, and adults in many different settings and have learned working one-on-one is what I enjoy most. I love what I do and am grateful for the privilege I have to work with each of my clients.
Growing up in Texas, I encountered many diverse people with a variety of experiences that now help me in my work. I never imagined I would live in Logan after graduation, but my Cache Valley loving husband somehow talked me into buying a house, so I am here for the long haul. In my free time I love to experiment making new meals and treats, playing games, and attempting to workout. I believe that each day is a new possibility and I look forward to what the future holds.
Lauren Dyches, Receptionist
Hi, I’m Lauren! I was born and raised in Texas and I am one of those Texans who believes it is the best state in the country. I moved to Utah to go to college on a music scholarship, though I hardly play my oboe anymore. Through my undergrad, I worked with some graduate students on drug addiction research and it was an amazing experience. I also worked in a bakery and loved it! I love the smell of freshly baked French bread.
I ended up getting my bachelor’s degree in psychology from USU, just like Dr. LeBaron. After graduation, I worked at a residential treatment center. I am currently working on my MBA from Utah State and I’m excited to see where it takes me.
I just got married last year to an Idaho farm boy. We don’t have any kids, but we do have three adorable hedgehogs that I’m obsessed with. I’m excited to be a part of The New Beginnings family!
