Our Commitment to the LGBTQ+ Community

Our Commitment to the LGBTQ+ Community

On 1 Jun 2021, in Wellness, self-improvement, Diversity

Guided by our values of compassion, respect, excellence, safety and teamwork, our team works to promote clients’ psychological safety during every session, welcoming them to share any or all of their identities with us.

We recognize that due to our heteronormative and cisgender privilege, we cannot assume the needs of our LGBTQ+ clients, acknowledging that every person within the LGBTQ+ community comes to counseling based on their own lived experiences and unique values.

We honor the resilience of the LGBTQ+ community, and we are aware that despite much progress over the years, the most marginalized identities, such as trans youth, people of color and HIV+ individuals, continue facing discrimination on a daily basis.

As EAP consultants, we are committed to fostering a space for individuals to name and claim their authentic selves -- rather than remaining hidden behind shame and fear. EAP telephone and virtual appointments are available. For more information, visit bjceap.com or call 314.747.7490 or toll free 888.505.6444.
