My name is Evelia Guizar; I am a 4th-year student in the Doctorate in Psychology (PsyD) program at Northwest University in Kirkland, WA.
My passion for psychological well-being started early in my teenage years as I navigated the complexity of integrating my cultural identity as a first-generation immigrant. Before becoming a graduate student, I worked in the field of Logistics, focusing on person-to-person interactions and professional relationships.
I believe in a holistic approach to therapy to understand the whole person and how life experiences, environments, and situations impact a person’s well-being. I embrace and respect diversity in cultural values, which make each client unique in their perspectives and experiences. I believe that we all experience moments in our lives where a therapeutic relationship helps promote healing and emotional strength as we navigate challenges in our daily life.
