It Can Be Hard To Find A Therapist In St. George, Utah
You are not alone trying to find a therapist for your anxiety or PTSD. Sure – St. George, UT is known as a travelers destination with its warm weather and picturesque scenery throughout Zion National Park and Snow Canyon State Park. And you could distract yourself with another latte from Feel Love Cafe or the local pride at the St. George Downtown Farmer’s Market….
But we also know that all the awe and wonder of our desert city doesn’t negate the fact that real day-to-day life can be hard. When your mental health becomes overwhelmed by anxiety, depression and PTSD, you desire access to resources like therapy and trauma counseling to help you rest, reflect and revive yourself.
Many women who find themselves at Guided Wellness Counseling will share that they felt judged at other offices. They worried that their therapists would disapprove of their religious or non-religious life, their relationship style (e.g. open, poly / polyamorous, kinky, queer…) and more. Many worried that they had waited too long or were too old to address trauma and abuse that happened years or decades ago.
These are real reasons why it can be hard to find a therapist in St. George. And it’s okay to talk about it. When we do, we find solutions and release the fears.
I Want To Help You Find A Therapist In St. George, Utah
Ever since opening Guided Wellness Counseling, nearly a decade ago now, I knew one thing for certain – that we will serve the diverse women of Southern Utah and help them overcome depression, anxiety and trauma / PTSD. We know that when it comes to mental health, secrets make us sick and shame is passed from generation to generation. This has to stop.
It has to stop because it is painful to keep secrets. They have a way of coming out sideways in unhealthy habits like:
- Poor boundaries
- People pleasing
- Negative self talk
High achieving women who struggle with anxiety often find themselves living with:
- Perfectionism / Avoidance
- Resentment in relationships
For all these reasons and more, I want to help you find a therapist in Southern Utah. The good news is that it’s not hard to begin the process.
Why Women Are Looking For Therapy In St. George, Utah
Our southern Utah community is unique and so is your mental health. It’s important to find a trauma counselor or therapist that will recognize you need more than a cookie-cutter approach to counseling or a self-help book recommendation. Chances are you’ve already tried to do what you can on your own.
One main reason women come to Guided Wellness Counseling is because they are ready for change. They know that their resentment and irritability is hurting their loved ones.

Weekly therapy sessions with a counselor that is matched to you gets the best results. Leaning into your inherent worth and new boundaries will require practice and consistency.
