Values

What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for LGBQ-identified patients?

My training and paperwork help create a welcoming and inclusive space.

What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for trans- and genderqueer-identified patients?

I'm an out queer and trans provider and prioritize welcoming and inclusivity. The space also has a gender neutral restroom.

Please describe the ways in which you are involved in LGBTQ community outside of your practice (ex: Do you attend conferences on working with LGBTQ clients? Are you involved in local organizations that serve these communities? etc).

I've attended and presented at Gender Odyssey. I'm also a long time supporter of Ingersoll Gender Center and have been a past group co-facilitator.

What else do you want potential patients to know about you or your clinic?

As a queer and trans person myself, I am committed to providing culturally competent healing work for the LGBTQIA community. Please check out my website at averyfishertherapy.com for more info. Thanks very much. I am also in the process of accepting Medicaid and other private insurance providers.
