Dr. Lisseth Rojas-Flores
I am a licensed clinical psychologist, educator, researcher, consultant, and speaker. I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Adelphi University; and a B.A. in Psychology from Georgia State University. As an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology at
Fuller Seminary, my research addresses the interconnections between mental health and social justice. I am particularly interested in documenting the effects of forced migration and immigration enforcement and community violence among children of immigrants and families in the United States and Latin America.
As a young scholar with the Foundation for Child Development, I work with parents, teachers, faith leaders, and young children to foster resiliency and flourishing among young children from marginalized immigrants communities. As a bilingual and bi-cultural psychologist, I maintain a small practice and specialize in psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and their families who are struggling with issues related to anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, and relationship problems. I also provide learning disabilities testing and assessments for immigration-related proceedings.
