Who: The target audience of my training are working professionals who their client/patient population includes those whom identify within the LGBTQIAP+ community, or who have people within their support system who do identify within the community.
What: Here is the agenda of what I cover in the training:
- Training Norms
- Brief History
- LGBTQ & Gender Identities
- Multiple Identities/Intersectionality
- Gender Pronouns
- Privilege: Heterosexism & Genderism
- Discrimination and Other Issues
- Coming Out
- Working with Clients
- Inclusive Language
- How to be an Inclusive Ally
- LGBTQ Jeopardy!
When: Training typically takes about 4 hours to complete. The first half (2 hours) is what I call “general knowledge” and the second half (2 hours) is what I consider to be more clinically oriented.
Why: The LGBT+ population is one that is marginalized and typically underrepresented. Having any baseline of knowledge is helpful to begin to understand how to best help, treat, and care for these clients. Especially in our current time and climate, it is crucial to have the background and information to show our clients that we are a safe space and are able to discuss all the things they need to in order to get the most out of their therapeutic experience. My training aims to meet the needs of a baseline knowledge of the LGBT+ community as well as to start the conversation about what is important to know as a clinician and what skills can be effective.

I have a minor in Queer Studies from Northern Arizona University. As a graduate assistant, during my time pursuing my master’s degree in counseling, I worked in the Inclusion and Multicultural Center on campus, specifically in their LGBTQIA Resources and Support office. During my time in the office, I facilitated the campuses Safe Zone training, as well scheduling and marketing for trainings. Since this time, I have developed my own training, which meets national Safe Zone standards, and have taught the training a handful of times over the past 3 years. I have also co-lead LGBT support groups at 2 separate counseling agencies.
