Education + Training

As a responsible citizen dedicated to asking hard questions, I’m examining my personal biases and the biases that have been passed down professionally.

I’m a fifty-ish, CIS-gendered, white, heterosexual woman. I’ve benefited from and contributed to systems of oppression. I’m learning to exist in the world with the discomfort of not knowing.  

I know enough to see when there are gaps in my knowledge around my clients' experiences related to race, ability, gender, sexuality, and other non-dominant identities. When this happens, I seek out resources and referrals to support the individual needs of my clients. I am committed to each client's growth, even if that healing doesn't happen with me.

I am a student with many teachers.
