||I hold certifications in Mindfulness meditation, and Trauma-affirmative approaches to reduce pain, suffering, and emotional distress. For past 5-yrs, I have been working with thrive-rs of Chronic illness and complex medical issues. Equally as a white therapist with an diverse service toward communities of color, I strongly acknowledge my profession and tied medical systems hold oppressive and inequitable accessibility & often forgo accountability toward racism. I am interested in identity development, tiered Racial Gender minority stress, healthcare engagement practices for disenfranchised/marginalized populations and providers identifying as TGNC while working with patients in the community. For the past 12 years, Ryan has been an LGBT health educator and consultant.
