Maricruz Ramos, Ed.D., LPC
Core Faculty, M.A. in Counseling Program

I chose to teach at the Adler School because my personal and professional values, which emphasize social justice principles such as equity, dignity, and access to resources for all, match those of our school’s mission. The Adler School is different from other schools because it focuses on social justice principles in the provision of mental health services to under-served populations.

My areas of specialization are counseling ethics, career development, multicultural counseling, group psychotherapy, and supervising MA practicum. Currently, I lead parent education workshop series for Spanish Speaking parents on behalf of the Adler Child Guidance Center.
