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. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all clients, members of our staff, trainees, subcontractors and vendors.
We are committed to working towards equality and against racial injustice and racism, xenophobia, sexism, transphobia and gender discrimination, classism, and homophobia. As clinicians and staff, we value a self-reflective practice and supporting one another to push our learning and growing edges and blind spots with regards to our inherent biases and prejudices that are inevitable with our privileged identities. These practices are integrated into our clinical practices, ongoing education and training for staff, and personal practices. We utilize a socio-cultural lens when conceptualizing and understanding our client’s present situations and presenting problems, and recognize that not all identities are visible.
We acknowledge our areas of privilege and how they interact and potentially impact our work with clients and oppressed identities. We recognize the power dynamic that is evident by virtue of the clinician/practitioner and client relationships. While we do not put this responsibility on our clients, we do welcome and encourage your feedback if you have ever been discriminated against or experienced microaggressions by our staff.
