Dr. Lideth Ortega-Villalobos, Counseling & Psychological Services

January 1, 2020

I’m Lideth Ortega-Villalobos, a psychologist at CAPS, and a bronco alumni class of 1998.  I have collaborated with the Veteran’s Resource Center as CAPS liaison since Fall 2012. For the past two years, I have offered weekly office hours for VRC students. My commitment to support student veterans comes from having friends and family who have served and recognizing the level commitment and adjustments that service members and their families make. Students can benefit greatly from help and resources while pursuing their education, yet I know there are stigmas about mental health that may hold someone back from talking to a counselor. In providing drop-in hours I hope to make the process of seeking help feel doable and something worth trying to see if it’s a good fit.
