Bio: 

My name is Arlene Rivero, Ph.D. and I am a Licensed Psychologist. I received my Bachelors in Psychology at UT Austin, a Masters counseling psychology from UNT and a PhD in Counseling Psychology also at UNT.  My Internship was completed at the Dallas Consortium (SMU &UTD Counseling Centers) and Post Doc work at Texas A&M Student Counseling Service, in College Station.  I consider it a privilege and a joy to work with college students as this is such an important time of growth, discovery and resilience.  As staff member with Counseling and Testing Services since 2010, my passions also include training and supervision of practicum students, emphasizing multicultural competence, personal growth and providing spaces of safety and exploration in the counseling room.  I enjoy working with people from varying backgrounds, identities and abilities and consider myself a generalist. I also serve as a ¼ time faculty member for the psychology department in vocational counseling and vocational counseling is also an area of work that is fulfilling. It has been my pleasure to serve UNT students at Counseling and Testing look forward to the continued growth and connection with the student body in the years to come.
