A note from Dina:
It is important for me to create as inclusive a space as I can, for all of those who work with me, and anyone I interact with. I acknowledge that my identity provided me with priviledges and experiences that are different from others. Because of this, I cannot fully understand your own personal experiences. It is important that I acknowledge this.
You are the expert on you and your body.
I am here to support you on your own personal journey.
