How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
There are specific issues that are associated with being a person of color, LGBTQ identified, or in an open/poly relationship structure. Being a member of all three of these communities and knowing first-hand the struggles of holding each of those identities offers me personal insight to help navigate the struggles that clients from one or all of those communities face.
