RANDY 2.jpg


Clinic Director

As a licensed psychologist, Randy Hyde has over 40 years of experience. Randy is highly sought-after in the field of clinical child and family counseling. In 1989, he founded what eventually became known as Preferred Family Clinic.

With double undergraduate degrees from Brigham Young University in 1979, in Psychology and Interpersonal Communications, Randy went on to receive his Ph.D. from BYU in 1983.

He spent five years as clinical director of Charter Canyon Hospital, an inpatient treatment facility. He was also the director of the children’s unit where he gained great insight into the techniques which change negative behaviors – even those hard-core problems found in a lock-down facility.

In 1994, Randy Hyde established the private Youth Reclamation Corporation, which helped adjudicated delinquent and ungovernable youth on house arrest. This program realized an impressive 85% change rate in its participants, as demonstrated in a powerful outcome study conducted by Michael Lambert at BYU.

In 2005, he founded the ADHD Clinic, to benefit families struggling with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. He understands the challenges and misconceptions related to this disorder. Even if your child has been diagnosed with ADHD, (or you suspect your child’s behavior is related to ADHD), Randy will help make a correct diagnosis, empower your child to gain moral maturity and make good decisions. He will coordinate with your medical doctor to help with medication management.

Randy also helped co-found iChology. Similar to Candeo, it is an online training program that gives people powerful principles and effective skills that will help remediate specific problems. The first program is the One Week Parenting Miracle, which is a program to help parents learn how to turn around pre-adolescent negative behavior in as little as one week. Other programs are Teen Miracle, Family Miracle, Recovery Miracle, treatment for Encopresis and Enuresis, Increasing Happiness, Overcoming Depression, Overcoming Shyness and Social Anxiety. These have seen tremendous success clinically.

Randy remains current in the academic world and enjoys being an adjunct professor at Brigham Young University and supervising psychology doctoral students.

Through these experiences, and from his many years in practice, Randy has developed a remarkable system with a common-sense, down-to-earth approach. These methods are effective
at changing bad behavior to good while increasing the love and security within an individual.

Each one of the counselors at Preferred Family Clinic has also been using Randy’s systems for over two decades now – with astonishing results. You can too.

Randy is married to his very best friend, Carolyn, and has six children and eight grandchildren. They live in Lindon Utah.
