Stevan Lopes, MEd, ACMHC, (he/him) SLC

Professional Highlights:

I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from the University of Utah in August 2017 and spent 9 years working in the behavioral health field working directly with children with Autism. I received an MEd from the University of Utah in 2024. I currently have an associate license in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and expect to receive full licensure in 2026. I am supervised by Dr. Marty Erickson, LMFT.


I specialize in working with individual youth and adults (age 12+), and I am developing spcializations in working with anxiety, depression, trauma, and experiences of intense emotional distress. Additionally, I provide support for people struggling with emotional regulation, and for those caring for individuals with unique behavioral needs and developmental differences. I offer guidance and assistance to LGBTQIA+ individuals and anyone navigating diverse or minoritized identities. This includes support for those exploring faith crises and transitions within the context of their personal beliefs and backgrounds. In counseling, my goal is to work in collaboration with you and offer an empathetic, light-hearted, safe space to explore your identity and values and work towards your therapeutic goals. I work to help you unpack past trauma, focus on its current impacts and assist in reshaping your future so you can experience less distress. I take an integrative approach to therapy, tailoring my interventions to meet the needs and unique personalities of those who consult me. I often draw from aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Affect Phobia, and Person Centered Therapy to assist people on their mental health journey. In counseling, every session is tailored to you because you’re unique, and so are your challenges. I’m here to guide you as you express your thoughts and feelings and recognize their impacts on your day to day functioning. Think of me as a companion on your journey of self-exploration. This is your chance to delve deeper into who you are and what you want from your life, and I’m excited to be a part of that journey with you.

Stevan has multiple immediate openings in-person in SLC, and immediate openings for teletherapy for anyone in Utah.
