Ms Arceneaux serves on our staff as a Marriage Family Therapist Trainee, as she is nearing the completion of her Master’s Degree in Marriage Couple Family Counseling. With a unique set of personal life experiences of her own, she discovered her niche in this world at an early age. Having a desire to work closely and directly with children and families and impacting their lives in a positive way, aligns with her calling in life. It is with this same passion that led to her pursuit of attaining a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Child and Adolescent Development, with a concentration in Children and Families from San Francisco State University. This degree led to her working in the field of early childhood education as a teacher and education coordinator in a variety of realms, including non-profit, private, and corporate settings.

Currently, her passion has not only re-affirmed her calling in life, but has also offered her an extension into the field of counseling, where she feels like she can serve children and families in a different capacity. Ms. Arceneaux possesses a strong belief in knowing that all of life’s experiences serve as an opportunity for growth. It is in this same vein that she purposes to marry the fields of early childhood education and counseling to better serve an ever-growing diverse population.

With her faith strongly rooted in Christ, as a Christian Ms. Arceneaux firmly believes in each one’s potential and strives to provide them with the tools and resources that will aide in enhancing their well-being. Living by the biblical principle found in Philippians 4:13 which states, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” not only serves as hope for her, but spills over into the lives of others, reaffirming they because they are living, that signifies purpose and the ability to conquer any and every challenge that they encounter in life. It is with this hope that will allow them to work their way towards well-being.

While being a member of the California Association for Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (CALPCC), the American Counseling Association (Social Justice and Humanism Division), the Chi Sigma Iota Honor Society, the Walden Student Advisory Committee, and the Association for Humanistic Counseling, simultaneously occupying roles on several counseling committees and boards, Ms. Arceneaux enters the counseling world as a trainee with great passion, tenacity, and expectation, as she readily grasps every opportunity that lies ahead of her.
