Mental Health is as broad a topic as the diversity of the human race, but we at LifeStar Salt Lake have chosen to focus on a very specific subset of our practice based on the overwhelming need we've seen over decades of clinical practice applicable to our work with people right here in Utah.
The People We Serve
Areas of specialization, or "Client Focuses" or "Practice Focuses," concern the categorization of people that therapists main area of expertise lie within when working with individuals. Our therapists focus on the following groups (but are not limited to!):
- Mormon (LDS)
Main Issues Addressed
Specific areas of mental health are professionally identified as "Issues" and concern the diagnosis of recognized psychological pathologies. Of note, we recognize a broad spectrum of what is unfortunately often referred to as "addiction" too frequently and avoid labeling anyone as an "addict" whenever possible.
