Values

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

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

My website describes my work with transgender and genderqueer people. I am the only person working. I let clients know they are welcome here, I ask for pronoun preference, I do intake to understand clients history and context of their gender identity, I receive consultation with experts when I feel I need additional education, support and understanding.

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).

My community is integrated in the queer community, arts and culture, literature, events.

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