Description

I have participated in a number of trainings about racial and ethnic justice over the years including but not limited to the following: Dr. Leticia Nieto, The White Privilege Conference, The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, ChangeWork, etc. During my graduate studies I looked at how identity (age, disability, religion, ethnicity, social class, sexual orientation, indigenous background, national origin and gender shape our lives and the experience we have in therapy.These trainings have included educational aspects, identifying areas for personal growth and concrete action steps I can take regarding areas of marginalization and agency.


Values

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

Many staff where I rent office space are also LGBT, bathrooms are gender neutral, several other therapists participate in training and continuing education around LGBT issues.

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

Bathrooms are gender neutral. Paperwork asks people to fill-in gender, but not chose from a list of pre-determined options. Intake paperwork also asking letters to insurance for covering transgender related care (like surgery) chosen name is used with the legal name and birth date referenced.

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 was the board president for Stonewall Youth and a volunteer there for several years. Currently I am involved in organizing and education efforts with WA Won't Discriminate. I have attended and presented at professional conferences like Gender Odyssey, The Philly Trans Health Conference and have put on a continuing education panel for providers working with trans and gender diverse clients. I participate in the online group Gender Spectrum Think Tank (provider page) as well as the Ingersoll Gender Center's Professional Listserve. In addition to my private practice, I work at a health clinic and am working on getting trans care and LGBT awareness implemented more systemically.

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

My therapeutic work is grounded in liberation, feminist theory and social change. I value the relationship between the client and myself and collaborate to identify goals and the direction of our work together. I primarily see couples and families, including parents of transgender and gender diverse children of any age. I am bilingual and offer therapy in Spanish.
