She turned down many jobs at private hospitals because they did not have a diverse clientele. One day Jenny is working with a Hispanic patient who speaks with a heavy accent. Becoming a little frustrated Jenny asked the patient to speak slower and clearer because she does not understand Mexican very well. The patient becomes visibly upset and becomes very short with his answers. When the session is over the patient leaves the room, angrily speaking to himself in Spanish.
