Ryan Gibbs, CSW-I Salt Lake Therapist
Let us fill our hearts with our own compassion - towards ourselves and towards all living beings.
 -Thich Naht Hahn
“As an intern therapist my guiding philosophy is based on a strong belief in the healing power of human connection and the importance of cultivating a therapeutic relationship that fosters trust, respect, and compassion. Ultimately, my goal is to create a safe and affirmative space for clients that allows them to show up as their most authentic selves without shame or fear of judgment. In doing so, I hope to encourage personal growth and healing that empowers clients to create a future of their own choosing. I am deeply honored to be able to guide others through this process and look forward to working together.”
Ryan Gibbs is a second year Master of Social Work student at Boise State University’s College of Social Work. He obtained bachelor’s degrees in psychology and political science from the University of Utah. Upon completion of his undergraduate studies Ryan joined AmeriCorps and committed two years of service at Fourth Street Clinic addressing the mental health needs of individuals experiencing homelessness. Ryan has spent the last seven years working at UAF Legacy Health, a community health center focused on providing primary care, HIV care, and behavioral health services for the LGBTQ+ community.
Given his work with many vulnerable populations Ryan understands the importance of meeting people where they are through a holistic lens of cultural awareness, understanding, and kindness. This approach allows him to consider not just a client’s emotional health but also their physical health, environment, relationships, and social influences. He is especially interested in working to reduce mental health related disparities for members of the LGBTQ+ community, aging adults, and other historically marginalized groups.
Ryan is passionate about social justice, animals, world affairs, and creating a better world for every human being. In his free time, he loves to ski, road bike, practice yoga, and savor all the natural beauty in our great state of Utah.
