Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are dedicated to fostering a space where individuals from all walks of life feel valued, heard, and supported. We recognize the richness that diversity brings to our community and believe that every person, regardless of their background, deserves access to high-quality mental health care.

Our Philosophy on LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC Affirmation

We proudly affirm and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities. To us, this means more than just tolerance; it means embracing the unique experiences, challenges, and strengths that LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC individuals bring to the table. We strive to create an environment that is not only accepting but actively affirming of diverse gender identities, sexual orientations, and cultural backgrounds.

How We Embody LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC Affirmation

Culturally Competent Therapists

Our therapists receive specialized training in LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC issues to ensure they are equipped to provide competent and affirming care.

Respect for Pronouns and Identities

We respect and use the pronouns that individuals prefer, recognizing that they are an essential aspect of one’s identity. Our therapists work to create an inclusive atmosphere.

Safe Space Creation

We are committed to maintaining a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space for all clients. This includes safeguarding against microaggressions, discrimination, or any form of bias.

Inclusive Language

We use inclusive language and terminology to create an environment where clients feel seen and heard, regardless of how they identify.

Advocacy and Support

We actively support LGBTQIA+, BIPOC causes, and advocate for policies that promote equality and inclusion.

Ongoing Education and Growth

We are committed to continuous learning about LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC experiences, identities, and challenges. This allows us to evolve and adapt our practices to best serve our diverse community.


We believe that by embodying LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC affirmation in these ways, we contribute to a more inclusive and accepting society. We are honored to support individuals on their journey towards mental health and well-being, and we welcome you with open arms.
