Diversity Statement and Our Values
Everwell Health and Counseling Services values and believes in the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe that diversity is a strength. We as a practice, and all our therapists, are committed to social justice. We have no tolerance for intolerance, bigotry, oppression, and injustice of any kind.
We strive to provide culturally responsive care that is grounded in cultural humility. We are committed to the ongoing pursuit of learning as well as unlearning. We believe that how we think, feel, and act are shaped from experiences we have had, both personally as well as from institutional, systemic, and historical influences and contexts. However, we believe in the growth mindset and resiliency, that we all have the capacity for change, to unlearn unhealthy behaviors or beliefs about ourselves, and strive towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
We are dedicated to caring for the underrepresented, underserved, and historically marginalized populations. We seek to not just create a “safe space”, but welcome individuals into a “brave space” to feel heard, understood, and supported. We strive to promote the growth and the empowerment of our clients.
