Diversity & Inclusion Statement
Embracing Cultural Diversity
All of our therapists are sensitive to the differences that make a difference to a person's experience. The context in which a person lives and loves is a vital part of their feeling of safety and security in the world and we honor and value this in our services.
Embracing Sexuality, Gender, Body & Relationship Diversity
In line with a neurodiversity model, we encourage inclusive, nonjudgmental language. While many disability advocacy organizations prefer person-first language ("a person with autism"), some research has found that the majority of the autistic community prefers identity-first language ("an autistic person"). Therefore, rather than making assumptions, it is best to ask directly about a person’s preferred language, and how they want to be addressed.
