Welcome! I'm glad you'e here.
There seems to be an unwritten rule that every social justice activist’s website must contain quotes from a few key people. For those of you playing Social Justice Bingo along at home, that quote above is from the great Nelson Mandela. And I cannot agree with him more.
Greetings, social change makers. My name is Mary-Margaret. I am a therapist and educator. My practice is built on my core belief that humans are here to learn. I think two of the truest sayings are that "you don't know what you don't know" and "when you know better, you do better." As a clinical social worker, I believe wholeheartedly in people's capacity for positive change and growth.
As a therapist, I specialize in sex, intimacy, and gender work.
As a trainer and consultant, I specialize in trauma-informed care, self-care for service providers, sexual health education, implementation of systemic care team approaches to mental health, workplace morale and team building, and the development of organizational training teams and initiatives. My original curricula Sex Education for Social Service Providers and Trauma-Informed Radical Self-Care for Service Providers are my most requested trainings.
