Andrea has a passion for multicultural counseling and working with underrepresented students through both counseling and outreach. She hopes to create a more inclusive and healthy campus for everyone. Andrea loves working with both undergraduate and graduate students on a range of issues. She feels excited to be able to support students in their growth and passions as they learn to navigate life at CU and beyond. Through her individual, group, and outreach work, Andrea focuses on strength-building, authenticity, and building stronger and more meaningful relationships. She has a specialty in couples therapy and issues around romantic and general interpersonal relationships.
Through the Volunteer and Peer Educator Program, Andrea gets to work with wonderful student leaders who want to make a difference on campus. Andrea also runs Bounce Back, a program that supports students struggling academically to help them thrive and succeed in their time at CU.
