My life changed when I came to CSPP-LA. I was honored to have been a part of transforming psychology – who practices, how they practice, what they learn, and who they serve. I was more honored to collectively create an institutional climate and culture built upon the principles of social justice, diversity and compassion with generations of dedicated students, faculty and staff.
