Values

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

Everything I can from the magazines in my office to my intake forms. My space is queer space. I am currently trying to get my office building to designate an all-gender bathroom.

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 participate in the Ingersoll Gender Center Consult Group and am a queer therapist that consults with other queer therapists. I am a member to the LGBTQ community.

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

I have special sensitivity to people impacted by mono sexism.
