As the Sexual Aggression Services Dedicated Counselor, it is my goal to create a safe and welcoming environment for students to feel comfortable working through healing from trauma. In my years of experience, I have witnessed how trauma can significantly impact an individual's life. Therefore, as a counselor my objective is to help students heal from trauma and guide them to be empowered in their own lives. Additionally, I work on educating students about how trauma affects their mind and body. Together we work on coping strategies to manage/decrease trauma reaction symptoms.
In treatment I utilize a strength - based approach, and I also include cognitive behavioral modalities as well as mindfulness - based strategies. I provide individual and group counseling for students impacted by sexual assault, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, and/or harassment.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Board Certified Counselor. I obtained my Master of Arts in Counseling at Central Michigan University. I obtained a Bachelor of Science with a major in Psychology from the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico.
