Biography

Dr. Ty Mansfield is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) who understands that humans are wired for meaning, connection, and belonging and believes that most of our struggles in life are intimately tied to how we experience relationships with others or how we find purpose. He has worked for almost 10 years in various capacities with individuals, couples, and families who have struggled with myriad issues, including anxiety and depression, marital distress and infidelity, sexual and religious identity conflicts, addiction, shame, poor coping mechanisms, various issues related to healthy sexuality and sexual relationships, and more.

His focus as a therapist is to guide clients in identifying patterns in their lives and relationships that are causing distress or keeping them from living in harmony with their values. Rather than looking at client issues in isolation, Ty takes a contextual, systemic, and holistic approach. His ultimate goal is to help clients foster deeper intimacy in their relationships and create greater joy in their lives. Ty has received specialized training in several therapeutic modalities, including Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), Gottman Method, Gestalt/experiential, Imago, Mindfulness-based, and Narrative therapies.

Ty also has extensive experience working with religious clients of LDS and other faith traditions who are struggling with conflicts between their sexual orientation and/or gender identity and their religious/spiritual beliefs and identity. He is a member of the Reconciliation and Growth Project, a dialogue group of mental-health professionals and academics who represent a wide spectrum of faith-based and liberal-conservative ideological positions on sexual orientation and gender identity. Together, with a shared commitment of two core principles of ethical mental health services—1) facilitate individual self-determination and 2) do no harm—they have been developing a “common ground” approach for working with clients who hold faith-based beliefs and who experience emotional distress related to same-sex attractions or non-traditional gender.

Ty is also a co-founder, past president, and current board member of the nonprofit North Star, a faith-based support organization for Latter-day Saints addressing sexual orientation or gender identity. With a focus on personal narrative and faith-based approaches addressing sexuality and gender, he chronicled his own journey with same-sex attraction as co-author of In Quiet Desperation (Deseret Book, 2010), as a cover feature of LDS Living magazine (May/June 2012), and compiled Voices of Hope (Deseret Book, 2011), an anthology of personal essays. He also co-directs the Voices of Hope Project, a website extension of the book, and the Journeys of Faith Project, which features the stories of transgender Latter-day Saints.
