I identify as a White, heterosexual, cisgender, and able-bodied male; I check just about all the boxes of privilege. Just like anyone else, my perspectives are informed by my identities, experience, and education. I am devoted to being open and humble in my work, and committed to understanding clients' experience.
So far in my career, I have assumed the roles of counselor, supervisor, researcher, educator, and advocate. Lifting voices of the marginalized and centering social justice is central to all my professional capacities.
I have been called an ally by some and an advocate by others; these are titles I do not take lightly nor do I ascribe to myself. You are in charge of what you share, when, and to whom you offer the status of allyship.
