Values

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

Individualized and body positive care, healing through a social justice framework, continuous outreach and education regarding the needs of LGBQ patients, maintaining a referral network with LGBQ-friendly medical and wellness professionals, sliding scale

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 identify as QTPOC and I am passionate about doing this kind of work in my community. In addition to my private practice, I also work at the Community Acupuncture Project of West Seattle and run a small community clinic at Asian Counseling and Referral Services. Community clinics provide a way to make acupuncture even more accessible to folks with limited financial resources, which is too often the case in LGBTQ communities. In the past I have also volunteered at Gender Odyssey and the National Queer API Alliance. In 2015, I had the privilege of attending the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference for the first time.

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

I currently do not accept insurance in order to offer a sliding scale and flexible treatment plans.
