Dr.Lucia Galleno is Associate Professor at Queens University of Charlotte, a Mental Health Counselor with a specialization in addiction and trauma. I became a MINT member in 2011 and have used Motivational Interviewing in my classes to create meaningful dialogues with my students, to encourage their autonomy, collaborative spirit, and pro-social behaviors. In addition, I’ve trained in mindfulness, yoga, and meditation. Currently I’m attending the Living School where I’m studying various spiritual traditions. My life purpose is to potentiate our humanity – education is a superb environment to explore it. MINT member.
