Dr. Samira Y. Garcia
Hi, my name is Samira Garcia. I am an instructor in the Family Therapy program. I hold a Ph.D. in Family Therapy, and I am on track to earn my AAMFT Approved Supervisor certification. I have worked with a diverse client population including at-risk youth and special needs children and their families. I work from a systemic perspective, addressing therapeutic problems from solution focused and collaborative approaches. I have a wide range of teaching experience, including treatment issues, research, family systems theories, foundations of family therapy, psychopathology & psychopharmacology, legal issues, special topics, and practicum. As the only fluently bi-lingual member of the faculty, I often work with bilingual students and their Spanish-speaking clients.
