We do not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, class, color, sexuality, gender, gender expression, religion, age, nationality, disability, marital status, or military status, in any of our activities or operations. We value diversity and are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all clients, members of our staff, trainees, subcontractors and vendors. We acknowledge our areas of privilege and how they impact our work with clients who have historically oppressed identities. We recognize the power dynamic that is apparent by virtue of the clinician/client relationship. While we do not put this responsibility on our clients, we do welcome and encourage your feedback. Please let us know if you have ever felt discriminated against by any member our staff or have experienced microaggressions in our office. We will take steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
We are dedicated to working toward social equity and against injustice, including racism, xenophobia, sexism, transphobia, gender discrimination, classism, and homophobia. As clinicians and staff, we value a self-reflective practice and supporting one another in pushing past the blind spots, biases and prejudices that are inherent to our privileged identities. We utilize a socio-cultural lens when conceptualizing and understanding our client’s present situations and presenting challenges; and recognize that not all identities are visible. We are trauma-informed and careful not to assume or stereotype.
