E-Therapy Diversity and Equity Statement

E-Therapy Diversity and Equity Statement

At E-Therapy, we pride ourselves on inclusivity by celebrating and championing multiple approaches, points of view, and diverse backgrounds among students and therapists. We believe diversity is essential to learning success and receiving an excellent education. We are dedicated to building a culture where differences are valued. Our holistic approach strives to grow our network of diverse people, programs, and tools designed to help staff, therapists, and students achieve their therapeutic goals.

We foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive educational community to create a learning environment that exposes students to the value and breadth of differences, informs their perspectives, and prepares them to succeed academically. It is essential to help students feel safe, seen, and connected while carefully assessing their diverse needs. We actively seek students, families, faculty, and staff of varied backgrounds and encourage them to share their unique gifts to cultivate a rich educational experience.

Our therapists are trained to have sensitivity to the unique traumas faced by students in diverse and minority populations. They are committed to promoting an equitable and positive learning environment for all students. E-Therapy always matches therapists with each student’s unique, diverse needs. Licensed therapists must maintain their CEUs, including coursework in the code of ethics.

E-Therapy has a large number of bilingual therapists and has been working with diverse populations throughout the nation in various settings for 15 years, including inner-city urban school districts, rural communities, Native American reservations, remote Alaskan islands, and virtual schools that cater to a diverse population of students. As therapists working with students with special needs, E-Therapists are trained to be sensitive to helping students overcome challenges and create a supportive environment where they can thrive and feel successful.
