We are pleased to introduce Kurt Kiswaled, LSW, who recently joined LifeWorks as a staff therapist.

How did you first learn about LifeWorks?

I joined KPACT and found out about LifeWorks through those events.

What drew you to LifeWorks? 

There is an intention towards intersectionality that I find very compelling.  It’s how I provide therapy to my clients so seeing a practice strive to be as intersectional as possible is truly beautiful. 

What are you hoping to gain at LifeWorks and how do you imagine it will impact your future?

I want to pair the identity work I already do with a depth approach.  I also want to develop skills in IFS to further serve my clients.  I hope to one day learn to be a supervisor and supervise other queer BIPOC clinicians who are struggling managing their identities and their practice.  

In the short amount of time, since you joined the LifeWorks, what has surprised you most and why?

Conversations about race are welcome and encouraged!  I love that!  Sometimes folks say they are antiracist and act colorblind.  I’m happy I can already feel supported in these conversations.

Anything else professionally that you are particularly looking forward to this year?

Learning and growing as a clinician.  I strive to do that regardless and I am happy that I can do it at LifeWorks.
