Sarah Lucas is a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) in Cincinnati, Ohio. After completing her hours for clinical licensure at a non-profit community mental health agency in Cincinnati, she was delighted to gain acceptance to PASEO in order to build her competence to eventually be able to work in community settings with Latino clients. She also aspires to continue toward this goal by returning to complete her bachelor's in Spanish at the University of Cincinnati. In her free time, she enjoys anything active, cheering on FCs Barcelona & Cincinnati, and comedy in all forms.
Scott Barrera is a master's student in Counseling Psychology at Ball State University. His primary research interests focus on identity development among the Latinx population with the United States. His long-term career goal is to provide mental health services in Spanish to Latinx population. PASEO provided him with the opportunity to improve his clinical skills in Spanish while also receiving direct service hours. He is grateful to have had the opportunity to learn about Peruvian culture while exploring his own Latino identity.
