My collaborative, relational, and culturally responsive approach with clients centers on offering a personalized care plan that is unique to each person. Some values that are important in my work include, and are not limited to, body liberation, anti-racist, anti-oppressive, inclusive, and 2SLGBTQIA+/QTBIPOC affirming care.
As a social worker, the profession’s NASW code of ethics states that we "must take action against oppression, racism, discrimination, and inequities, and acknowledge personal privilege." And that "social workers should demonstrate awareness and cultural humility by engaging in critical self-reflection (understanding their own bias and engaging in self-correction); recognizing clients as experts of their own culture; committing to life-long learning; and holding institutions accountable for advancing cultural humility.
These ethics along with social justice, integrity, and the dignity and worth of the person are guiding principles I work to aspire to uphold in my practice.
