Our Values: Culturally-Sensitive and Affirming Care
We embrace our responsibility to intentionally create an inclusive, equitable, and affirming environment for people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, religions, genders, ages, abilities, and sexual orientations. We strive for this through the following values:
Holistic Approach Therapy is approached from a culturally-sensitive perspective, with attention to the intersections of multiple identities, relationships, social contexts, and systems of oppression.
Openness and Curiosity We seek to explore and understand how multiple, marginalized identities and various forms of oppression influence one's life story, sense of self, and overall well-being. We will not stigmatize nor pathologize your experiences.
Collaboration Individuals are viewed as collaborators in their treatment, and inherently capable of growth, healing, empowerment, connection, and disentanglement from externalized and internalized messages of stigma and racism.
Personal Accountability We strive to challenge ourselves, to acknowledge our own biases, to say truths even when they are difficult, to be aware of our privileges, and to work towards social justice and change in our world.
We are a full-service private practice offering a variety of therapeutic services conveniently located in Old City, Philadelphia.
