C Meyer, Student Intern

C Meyer (she/they) identifies as genderqueer. She is in her final year as a clinical intern attending the University of Utah’s Master of Social Work program. In 2014 she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Recreational Therapy from the University of Utah. For the last ten years, C has worked at a youth Psychiatric Residential Treatment Center, where she advocated for creating critical policy and systemic change so transgender clients can receive equitable and ethical care. 

They are a valuable member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community and are passionate about advocating for the rights and inclusion of LGBTQIA2S+ individuals. They care deeply about gender-affirming care and suicide prevention. C’s work is rooted in social justice, sex positivity, and a Queer Theory lens. C facilitates a transgender and non-binary support group at the Utah Pride Center and works with other community partners to help amplify marginalized experiences and voices. 

C and their partner are from Utah and have a dog named Flint. They are an outdoor enthusiast, prioritizing their own self-care through running, riding motorcycles, snowboarding, and practicing yoga. 

Her dream is to open an LGBTQIA2S+ group home for unsheltered youth while providing a holistic experience in combination with recreational therapy, trauma-informed care, and psycho-education. She is interested in the healing components of nutrition, psychedelic-assisted therapy, and becoming EMDR certified to assist LGBTQIA2S+ clients better.

They look forward to meeting and walking beside you on this incredible healing journey.
