Carlos Lopez

Hello, my name is Carlos. Nice to meet you. 

I am a third-year graduate student in Antioch University New England's Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) program. As a counseling student and future LMHC, I appreciate working with a population of all ages and life experiences. Throughout my education, I have studied many theories, I enjoy reading about existential modalities. I also have read Sigmund Freud, Alfred Alter, Carl Jung, William Glasser and Carl Rogers and several others. I see clients as doing the best they can, many times they need a listening ear that can provide support. Also, I hope to be able to utilize creative approaches within my counseling practices. 

My background includes four years as a recovery counselor/substance use professional, where I worked with the adult populations in the outpatient setting and incarcerated individuals. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Human Services at Western Washington University, and my Associate of Arts and Chemical Dependency degree from Olympic College. 

My hobbies include enjoying outdoor activities. I'm fond of utilizing creative arts strategies and meditation as part of my self-care. I am an American immigrant, a first-generation college student, and I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for more than 20 years. I look forward to giving back and helping those in my community.
