Therapy Amidst COVID-19
Cheryllynn Mena MA ’18 reflects on how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts her work as a bilingual mental health practitioner in Marin County.
Although I'm new to the school counseling world, this program has given me confidence in my abilities through the support I receive from my classmates, professors, advisors and supervisors. The SCP offers rigorous learning at both the head and the heart level."
