MS, counseling; marriage and family therapy, San Diego State University
Libni López works as a bilingual staff therapist at the Student Health and Counseling Center. Originally from Tijuana, Mexico, López joined Oberlin in 2017, after living in San Diego for many years working primarily with non-profit organizations such as San Diego Youth Services and most recently the LGBT Community Center.
López’s clinical background and training include working with couples, family therapy, transitional-aged-youth (TAY), multicultural counseling, substance/co-occurring disorders, individuals living with HIV, and the LGBTQ community.
His special interests include working with students who experience depression, anxiety, gender identity, queer identity, interpersonal difficulties, and diversity.
Outside of his clinical practice, López has been involved in supporting actions and causes that support immigrant’s rights. As an immigrant himself, he has been invested in supporting the visibility of undocumented and DACAmented students on campus and often volunteers with OUI (Obbies for Undocumented Inclusive) and has been an invited speaker at demonstrations in Oberlin and Cleveland.
López’s greatest passion has always involved empowering individuals to find connection, meaning, and healing that centers on them.
