¡Hola y Bienvenidos!
(Hello and welcome)
Hi, I'm Dr. Darleen. I am a licensed clinical psychologist, which means I have training
in assessing, diagnosing, and treating mental health issues that have created significant
dysfunction and problems for everyday people like you. While I have the training and
expertise to treat many different conditions, no two people are alike; you are the
expert on you! My job is to listen to your story and help you figure out what the
problematic things in your life are and help you come up with ways to problem solve
and make change that will move you towards the goals that you want to achieve. Truthfully,
therapy is hard work! So make sure that you are ready to put in the energy and effort
it takes to make change in your life. I am 100% committed to helping you achieve the
goals we set out to accomplish together and if we can't, then I will point you in
the direction of those who can.
Clinical Interests: I enjoy working with individuals who identify as diverse across any spectrum. I have experience working with LGBTQ+ identified persons, racial and ethnic minorities, first generation students, students of non-traditional age, students with disabilities, and international students. I also enjoy helping students with adjustment to college, big life transitions, identity development, women's issues, immigration related difficulties, depression, anxiety, and grief/loss.
Languages: I am fluent in English and Spanish
Approach to Supervision/Training: Developmental, Interpersonal, Collaborative
Affiliations & Roles: Currently co-facilitating a group for trans, gender queer, gender non-binary, and otherwise gender diverse USF students; I also serve on the center's Research and Data Analysis Committee & Brightside Crew (responsible for staff team building)
