Statement on Active Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
I have an actively Anti-Racist Private Therapy Practice. All therapy services and interactions that I provide are geared towards constant learning and growing in multicultural competency, diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racist practices. As the owner of this business and as a psychotherapist, these areas of service and education are deeply important to me, and my goal is to do my absolute best to provide an actively inclusive and safe space for all BIPOC clients and individuals from the LGBTQIA+ community.
I am human and I will mess up from time to time. This does not make these missteps ok or acceptable, but I want everyone working with me to know that I am eager to learn and actively seeking opportunities for personal growth related to the topics of anti-racism and inclusion and equity for all people. The therapy setting and relationship is deeply personal and it is important to me that I am consistently and curiously seeking to do better, know more, and be more sensitive to those who come to me for support.
I want to recognize that it is never the client’s place or obligation to educate me about their experiences as a BIPOC or member of the LGBTQIA+ community, but I also want to create a place where each client feels comfortable expressing their boundaries and lived experiences in society without fear of doubt or questioning from me. Hold me accountable when you need to. Personally and professionally, I am committed to my ethical belief that as a member of this society it is my duty to educate myself, to train and to grow as a person in these areas of diversity, equity and inclusion.
