Diversity & Inclusion

At The Juniper Center, we value empathy, authenticity, acceptance, and the restorative healing power of relationships and community. We recognize that we are a culturally diverse community comprised of various experiences with multiple layers of social identities. We embrace and celebrate our difference, including race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation, social class, ability status, and nationality.

We acknowledge how our field has underserved the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities. As a longstanding leader in LGBTQ+ inclusion, we’re committed to helping change that. We’re committed to cultivating an inclusive space of appreciation, awareness, and respect for all forms of diversity. We’re also committed to cultivating and nourishing cultural acceptance by providing culturally sensitive services within our community.

To enhance our understanding, experience, and therapeutic service offerings, our team of mental health professionals consistently participate in education, training programs, and ongoing research in diversity. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is an evolving and open-ended journey.

At The Juniper Center, we take great pride in providing inclusive services and programs that serve to advocate for all our clients while providing a safe space to be heard, accepted, and to start the healing process.
