Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) Group Therapy
“Reconciling Faith and Sexuality” - This psychotherapy group is designed to provide a space for students who identify as LGBTQ+ or who experience same-sex attraction to openly discuss their sexuality and how it intersects with their faith. We strongly value agency and an individual’s right to self-determination. We also recognize the complexities that arise in trying to reconcile these two important aspects of identity. In group, we encourage students to thoughtfully explore their identities, help support one another in their individual journeys, and work toward psychological health.

Office of Belonging
Blake Fisher is an Inclusion Advisor on campus who focuses primarily on the experiences of sexual and gender minorities at BYU. Students often reach out to Blake to talk about how to get involved in outreach efforts, the coming out process, and ideas about navigating life at BYU and in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Blake’s primary goal is to help students feel heard, supported, and connected as they make important decisions in their lives. Feel free to reach out to Blake by emailing him at blake_fisher@byu.edu or calling 801.422.0285. Blake is available to meet in-person, over zoom, or on the phone.
