Professional Outreach and Training

As a director and staff at the Counseling Center, I provide outreach on issues affecting our student population. These topics include suicide prevention, test anxiety, coping strategies for international students, among others.

Based on my seminary training and multicultural experience, I also provide - on a limited basis - brief consultation to seminary formators and Catholic dioceses on seminary formation and issues affecting Catholic clergy.
