While I have provided services to a diverse array of patient backgrounds (across age, gender, sexual orientation, race, culture, religion, and family systems), I also believe that there is always room to grow in diversity education and cultural competence. I am passionate about providing evidence-based services through a diversity-sensitive lens that is adapted to each individual’s identity, beliefs, and values. I hope all patients feel welcomed and supported, as I genuinely believe everyone deserves exceptional care and a chance to thrive.
