Brijida “Brijit” Christina Alemán, AMFT and APCC, is an Alumni of Santa Rosa Junior College with an AA in Psychology, AS in Administration of Justice, Corrections Certificate, and Children in the Justice System Certificate. She is also an Alumni of Sonoma State University with a B.A. in Psychology. Brijit earned her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute in Berkeley, pursuing dual licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist and Professional Clinical Counselor.

 

Brijit (she/her/ella) was born and raised in Santa Rosa and is a multicultural, first-generation college graduate. She is Native American from the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians and Mexican-American. As a daughter of migrant farm laborers, Brijit traveled with her family throughout Sonoma County, Northern California and Oregon, working the fields, and picking grapes, apples, pears, and cherries.

 

Brijit’s clinical work includes her internship while in graduate school as an MFT Trainee at Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) in Santa Rosa. As a bilingual mental health clinician, Brijit builds alliance with clients, identifying cultural similarities and differences in a candid, professional style, while exploring client’s beliefs in healing. Her strengths-based approach supports clients in recognizing what’s going well in their present life, giving clients agency to seek opportunities to evolve as a whole person.

 

Since 2009, Brijit has worked at SRJC in College Skills, Financial Aid, and Disability Resources. As she continues to work with Disability Resources she is also working this semester with Student Health. She has years of combined law enforcement experience working in corrections with Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department, and gaming enforcement with her Tribe in Hopland.

 

In her new role as a psychotherapist, Brijit looks forward to connecting with SRJC’s Spanish-speaking, Latinx, and Native-American student populations, holding a cultural lens and awareness in support of their mental well-being.
