Brent Pace, MSW, LCSW (Salt Lake)

Brent Pace is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. He received his Master of Social Work degree from the University of Utah and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in French from Brigham Young University. He holds the title of Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Utah for the work he has done supervising MSW students over the past seven years. He has provided mental health care to individuals, couples and families for over 15 years working in a variety of settings, always with a focus on LGBTQ individuals. He worked with juveniles who had offended sexually for four years, worked with Juvenile Justice Services for several years, and provides therapy at the Center for Human Potential where he continues to see some clients and supervises other therapists. He works with adolescent, adult, and geriatric clients. And though Brent treats depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, his real passion is working with individuals struggling with the effects of trauma. He is certified in Mind-Body Medicine and utilizes this integrative approach to therapy where appropriate. He believes there is much work to be done in healing those suffering from familial, religious and institutional abuse. He currently works in private practice in Salt Lake City (First Avenue Counseling). When he’s not working he loves watching independent and foreign films, writing and reading poetry, visiting National Parks, and traveling to France with his husband of 21 years.
