Diversity & LGBTQ+
DIVERSITY AND COMMITMENT TO ANTI-OPPRESSIVE PRACTICE
We celebrate and affirm all persons of all cultures, ethnicities, faiths, ages, abilities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and intersectionalities. As your therapists, we affirm, value, and celebrate what makes you unique. You are wonderful the way you are and deserve to be accepted as such.
POWER AND PRIVILEGE
All of our therapists at Building Bridges Psychotherapy are committed to anti-oppressive practice. We are each aware of the varying levels of privileges afforded to us as therapists. We also acknowledge the years of historical, overt, and systemic oppression that has long plagued many minority groups until today. As therapists, we strive to reduce the power imbalance in the therapy room by working collaboratively with clients to empower them. Outside the therapy room, we are committed to always furthering our education in anti-oppressive practice and advocating for social justice.
The LGBTQ+ acronym refers to persons who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer. The plus sign is used a way to recognize that there are other identities that this umbrella term may not capture (e.g., Poly, Asexual, Intersex, Pansexual, Two-Spirited, Questioning). We celebrate and affirm all persons under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. As your therapists, our role is to meet you where you are and support you. When working with LGBTQ+ folks, we do not assume that your gender or sexuality is the reason for attending therapy, unless you say you want to talk about it. We also support parents, partners, and other family members that are interested in talking about LGBTQ+ concerns.
