Mission Statement

The LGBTQ-Affirmative Psychotherapist Guild of Utah is a Utah-based, grassroots organization of licensed mental-health professionals and students-in-training. We share a collaborative commitment to make affirmative culturally competent therapy available for anyone.

Affirmative therapy for LGBTQ individuals is based on the premise that LGBTQ and heterosexual identities are equally valid.
