The LGBTQIA Clinical Learning Series is a set of four 3-hour, trainings designed to provide information about working with people from sexual and gender minority groups, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA). Sessions will be repeated upon request.


Each training has been pre-approved for 3 continuing education units (2 General CEUs and 1 Ethics CEU) for counselors, marriage and family therapists, and social workers. Trainings are offered in-house at my office or as an in-service at your site.

If you would like a training on only one component of the LGBTQIA Clinical Learnings Series, I ask that you thoughtfully reflect upon your current knowledge base.​
