I am a queer, fat, disabled, white Brasilian-American ciswoman and femme who loves reading about the world, spending time with my chosen family, and over-analyzing media.
I’ve spent more than eight years working with LGBTQIAP+ individuals and allies in various capacities, including education, advocacy, fundraising, counseling, and hosting peer-led support groups.
While in graduate school, I interned at an adult center for people with significant intellectual and developmental disabilities. Understanding their mental health struggles within the context of their environment, lived experiences, society, family structures, and personal restrictions, it was there I developed my passion for working with youth and adults from an intersectional disability justice framework.
My name is Shirley Roseman. I am a Registered Clinical Social Work Intern (ISW#14003) and I provide an intersectional approach to therapy, understanding that stress, trauma, and depression are all impacted by lived experiences in a society that is oppressive to some more than others. It is my privilege to affirm and validate your worth and value through challenging negative self-narratives while affirming you to create a life that makes you feel good– that you deserve.
