Rebecca is a doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program at the University of Massachusetts Boston and has a Master’s degree in Psychology.

Driven by her experiences living abroad, her work with international students in the U.S., and her own intercultural marriage, Rebecca is passionate about learning from other cultures’ ways of seeing the world and relating to others. She hopes to explore how Western psychology can move towards valuing other cultures’ knowledge more deeply. She is also interested in the impact of social support and community life on mental health and anti-racism interventions.
