Nayeli Martinez
Aliento Graduate Assistant

Nayeli Martinez is a graduate student in the Aliento program, pursuing a Masters in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy with Latinxs. She graduated from the University of California, Davis where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Nayeli has a passion for working with children and families in marginalized communities. She currently works as a Service Coordinator for the Harbor Regional Center, where she assists families by providing case management for their children with developmental disabilities or delays. Nayeli hopes to use her education and experiences to help break down the stigma and barriers surrounding mental health within Latinx communities. 



Dr. Gallardo and the entire Pepperdine community would like to thank Nahal Kaivan, Michelle Rubio, Cynthia Ruiz and Huna Yim for their commitment in conceptualizing, researching, and developing Aliento. Without their help, Aliento would still be a work in progress. Their commitment to the Latinx community will serve many students, and the entire university community, for years to come.
