Women Holding Hands

We at Riverbend (RITT and RCG) are heartbroken and angered over recent events that have resulted in the murder of black lives. As stated in our mission statement, “Riverbend Integrative Trauma Treatment (RITT) addresses the full scope impact of trauma.” This includes racial trauma that has impacted the lives of black individuals from a systemic and historical level. While these events are not new, the conversation and action are growing.

 

Riverbend affirms its commitment to recognizing, addressing, and eradicating all forms of racism and ethnic oppression. We focus on engaging and collaborating in providing services, including counseling and supervision, that challenge oppressive and unjust forces.  We work to reduce racial injustices both within the counseling/social work community and our larger community. As a collective consisting of mostly white women, we are committing to educating ourselves further and continuing the conversation of racial injustice. RITT Fellows, staff, and supervisors are united in the pursuit to end racial and ethnic bias and to empower our students toward this collective goal.  Black Lives Matter.

We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to once again come into our office for sessions!  Please talk with your therapist about, ask any questions, let her know how you’d like to proceed and to adjust schedules.  We will have staggered appointment times so few people are coming and going at the same time.
