Steven Zuniga Bio
I’m very excited to be back in College Station this year to complete my internship at the SCS! I’m a Texas native and proud Aggie (Class of 2010). I find working with college students very rewarding, as it is a privilege to provide mental health support during this transitionary period. As a counselor, I hope to provide a safe and collaborative environment for students to explore thoughts and emotions in order for them to achieve goals and improve daily functioning. During my free time, I enjoy reading, exploring parks/the outdoors, collecting vinyl records, attending live music events, and taking trips on the weekends to visit family and friends located nearby!
