My name is Danielle La Torre and I am the College Counselor at CYC! I was born and raised in the Bay Area, and I completed my undergraduate education at Santa Clara University with majors in Psychology and Women’s and Gender Studies and a minor in Italian. I completed my Master’s in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco. Within my role at CYC, my goal is to assist students in grades 9 through 12 with the entire college admissions process and to increase the number of students attending any form of post-secondary school. I am passionate about working with first-generation college students, as well as students of diverse backgrounds, to be the extra support needed to navigate this complex process.
