Sollita Lucero, MA, LSCW Candidate
Mental Health Counselor
Hello, my name is Sollita Lucero, and I am very excited to become a part of the GALS Family. I graduated from the University of Denver in 2017 with my Masters of Social Worker Degree. I have several years of experience working in community mental health, specifically with adolescents. I have experience in residential treatment and psychiatric hospitals. I also have a private practice focusing on athletes and their mental health. I operate from a trauma informed perspective. I believe it is important to acknowledge and process through challenging life experiences to create a space of healing. I believe in the holistic approach to include important people in one’s life such as family, school officials, peers and others to help explore the feelings, emotions and behaviors that one wants to work on. I am a person who loves to be active and move a lot. I am very goofy and sassy. I am a former collegiate athlete who enjoys playing sports in my free time as my coping skill. I play flag football, softball, basketball, and I definitely love to snowboard. Currently, I am learning how to box, and hopefully, once this pandemic passes, I will begin to compete. If you want to find me outside of work, I am probably at the boxing gym. When the chance to work at GALS presented itself to me, I was ecstatic. I can't wait to really begin working with students, staff and families via zoom and hopefully in person someday soon!
