Values

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

All informative forms, intake forms and self care homework forms are gender neutral, include chosen name and pronoun

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

See above.

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).

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, it's a passion of mine to continually read and study about working within our community. I have volunteered with various social justice groups around Seattle. I have donated to and intend to volunteer at Camp Ten Trees.

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

I believe in the body's wisdom to heal itself with the appropriate support. My goal is to find what that is for you in a safe space, so that you feel heard, healthy and vital at the root level. I also accept Health Savings Accounts (HSAs).
