LGBT Therapy Needs Can Be Met



Thank you for bringing attention to the unmet needs of the LGBTQ community [5 Spot, Jan. 16, City Weekly]. Dozens of Utah therapists had the same concerns and joined together in 2003 to form the LGBTQ Affirmative Psychotherapists Guild of Utah, an organization of licensed mental-health professionals and students in training. We have more than 100 active members dedicated to providing therapy services to the LGBTQ community.

Our website,, has an online directory, searchable by county and specialty, of licensed Utah therapists who are experienced with the LGBTQ community.
