Staff Trained in Racial & Cultural Issues?

yes

Description

Racial-cultural sensitivity (multicultural competence) had been consistently and heavily integrated into my graduate training and professional work. All of my doctoral and postdoctoral practical training has had cultural competence as an emphasis, I've written and presented professionally on these matters, provide diversity trainings and workshops, and see this as a lens through which I do all of my work. I've been fortunate in that I've been taught and mentored in this area by many phenomenal and inspiring leaders in this area.


Values

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

I'm a solo private practitioner so I know that my forms, office space, decor, language, attitude and values, and ways of practicing are welcoming and inclusive for LGBQ-identified clients.

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).

I attend conferences, workshops, trainings

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