Carmen Cruz, LICSW
I am trained as a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of clinical experience and have been working in college mental health for over 10 years. As an African American clinician of color I enjoy working on issues of inclusion and diversity. I enjoy providing affinity groups that encourages self-care and mental health wellness. I specialize in mindfulness meditation, cognitive behavior therapy, trauma, depression, anxiety, and addictions. I enjoy working with all students, particular BIPOC students and guide them through multiple strategies that help to manage challenges, transitions, adjustments and anxiety. I am inspired by faith, family, anti-racism work, joy, woman empowerment, restorative justice and books about self-love and wellness.
