Diversity Statement:

My practice includes Asian Americans, African Americans, Hispanic, and LGBTQ individuals of all ages.
In my formative years I lived in a number of locations that were ethnically diverse and learned to work/get along with with all people I encountered.

The city of Spokane, Washington is much less culturally and ethnically diverse than the western (Seattle area) part of the state.

I have graduate level training in working with culturally diverse populations. I have lived around and worked with people with a wide variety of cultural and ethnic origins.
