Alumna profiled in Shoutout LA
Marjory Vazquez (Ph.D. ‘19) alumna of the counseling psychology doctoral program in the Mary Frances Early College of Education, discussed her psychology practice and time at UGA in a story from Shoutout LA.
Based in the Bay Area of California, Vazquez spoke about her psychology practice, The Sana House, where she provides bilingual services in English and Spanish and is passionate about working with women of color.
While at UGA, she created a bilingual clinic in Athens with Edward Delgado-Romero, associate dean for faculty and staff services and professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Development Services. Vazquez said that experience helped her gain skills working in a private practice and nurtured her entrepreneurial spirit.
“Soon after starting graduate school at UGA, Dr. Delgado-Romero and I started a bilingual clinic during my first year of the doctoral program. Looking back, this was truly my first-time dabbling in private practice work,” she said. “I was able to learn a little of how a private practice/non-profit worked and was really part of creating the infrastructure for a clinic that is still ongoing and has grown immensely since my time in graduate school.”
