The beauty of Utah’s mountains along the Wasatch front this time of year is absolutely astonishing!

Much has happened over the past (nearly) two years. It' has been a conflagration of loss, sacrifice, despair, despondency, frustration, grief, and loss.

I know it's not something we can buy off the shelf at our local grocer's--it's something we have to learn to cultivate.

I am currently conducting all my sessions via videoconference. I typically use the platform, which is HIPPA compliant. Please contact me directly if you have any questions about my response to the COVID-19 crisis.

First Avenue Counseling continues to see all clients via videoconference due to the risks of COVID-19.

For the time being, I've taken my practice entirely online. Though I know this doesn't come naturally to some, I encourage clients to give it a try as it usually becomes second nature after even a few minutes. Thanks to everyone for their patience during this difficult time.

About me

My name is Brent Pace. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have worked as a therapist for over 20 years. I specialize in working with trauma survivors including those who have survived what is termed "complex trauma." Trauma can be caused by numerous things from sexual and physical assault to spiritual and religious or organizational abuse. I also provide specialized services to LGBTQ+ clients in the Salt Lake area. I work with both adolescents and adults, individuals and couples and work with families when appropriate. With a strong understanding of the LDS (Mormon) faith, I often work with individuals struggling to reconcile their faith with their sexual orientation or gender identity. I meet with my clients "where they are" and explore ways to increase each client's sense of self-worth and dignity.
