Clinical Student Intern
Garmis emigrated from the Dominican Republic at the age of three to New York city. She is a Washington Adventist University Clinical Mental Health Counseling candidate (2020). Garmis obtained her Bachelor of Arts in psychology from The City College of New York in Harlem. Garmis became passionate about nutrition at an early age and launched “Cooking with Garmis” to draw awareness about eating healthy yet flavorful meals. She realized an essential component of a balanced lifestyle is to view the person as a whole. Proper nutrition, physical activity, and mental health contribute to a person’s daily quality of life. Additionally, Garmis holds a Mental Health First Aid certification and volunteered internationally to Shanti Bhavan in India as a school teacher. A community is only as strong as those that represent them. She hopes to bind the gap within the mental health community and the Latino and African American community by speaking up and showing up.
Sessions offered in Spanish upon request.
Garmis will complete her internship December 2020.
We all had to start somewhere.
PsycYourMind® is committed to the training and experiential learning of up-and-coming therapists.
