Values

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

The building is owned by a lesbian couple and is located on Capitol Hill.

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

In our office, both of us have had training through our school programs. As far as the rest of the providers we are not sure. As far as I know none of our clients that identify as the above have not informed us of any problems they have.

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 have Volunteered for various organizations; attended various conferences and volunteered for a few. I help teach a class on trans and queer people; I have conducted a research project during my bachelor program on LGBTQ youth, and I am a mentor to younger folks in the trans community.

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

I believe in a confidential, integrative, and supportive approach to therapy in a safe and affirming space. I believe that developing a therapeutic relationship in which you feel safe enough to look at what you bring into therapy, can help one learn to address those issues. Engaging in therapy is brave and healthy way to manage those things in life that perplex us, that are not conducive to a happy life.
