Mental Health Associate 

I'm entering my 3rd year as the Mental Health Associate at Antelope High School and am proud to be a Titan! I graduated with my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2016 and have worked in a variety of settings since then including schools, private practice, and community clinics.  I believe that change happens in the context of safe, nurturing relationships, and I bring this philosophy with me in my therapeutic practice.   I have received specialized training in family restoration techniques and trauma processing.  In my free time I enjoy cooking and spending time in my garden.

PCC INTERN & MFT TRAINEE *SUPERVISED BY SABRINA VELLA LCSW 75729

Emily Zavala Aguilar

I am interning as the Professional Clinical Counselor & Marriage and Family Therapist Trainee, while completing my Counseling Psychology Master's degree at University of San Francisco. I recieved my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Human Development at University of California, Davis in 2018. Before I started interning at Antelope High School, I was the WEAVE Confidential Advocate for the Los Rios Community College District. There, I worked with college students experiencing different forms of intimate partner violence, as well as providing education and prevention trainings for students and faculty. I am passionate about the healing power of emotional attunement and strength-based support for students. In my spare time I love to read, see live music, and spend time with my dog, Mavis.

PCC INTERN *SUPERVISED BY SABRINA VELLA LCSW 75729

Mr. Paul Singh

Currently pursuing my masters in Counseling Psychology at William Jessup University. During my free time I enjoy getting out of my regular schedule, whether that is hiking or hanging out with friends and family. This year I am really looking forward to connecting with students and helping them walk through their mental health journey. I wish my school had implemented a wellness center like this when I was in high school, so it is a privilege to be able to be able to step into the gap and help students now.
