Our Values

The Beyond Therapy Podcast combines Creasman Counseling's commitment to justice and equity in mental health with our passion for educating providers. We have spent years in direct service and counselor education, and have been frustrated by the slow progress toward cultural responsiveness in the field. We believe that systemic change starts at individual, family, and community levels. We hope this work will inspire others to step up and speak out.

Our Commitment

  • Deconstruct research and clinical practice by centering voices from historically marginalized groups

  • Design content with an emphasis on accessibility

  • Invite personal growth through vulnerability and empathy

  • Contribute to causes that empower disenfranchised groups
