Message from the Advocate

Since my arrival at California State University, Northridge last year, I have worked to empower survivors of sexual violence, interpersonal abuse, harassment, and stalking, through a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive lens. As CSUN’s care advocate, I work to provide a confidential space for survivors to discuss their experiences, concerns and options. I understand the short- and long-term effects a survivor may experience after an assault or after abuse, and I am committed to providing advocacy services to meet the unique needs of every survivor. I try to emphasize to the campus community that no one should have to navigate these issues on their own, and that there is no shame in seeking support. If you feel that you or someone you know might benefit from these services, no matter what the circumstances or timing of your experience, please do reach out. There is help available.
