Mariam Halstead | Consulting Services



Mariam is a clinical social work intern who loves working with students at the University of Nevada in Reno. She identifies as queer, pansexual, Muslim, cisgender, and white (Moroccan/White-American) woman. She grew up overseas (Saudi Arabia, South Korea, etc.) and moved to Reno from the DC area in 2012. In Reno, she enjoys a slower pace of life and exploring nature.

She is a licensed social worker and received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from George Mason University and her Masters of Social Work from the University of Nevada, Reno. At the undergraduate level, she participated as a research assistant in studies on anxiety and suicidality in students. Mariam has a long history of advocacy and volunteering with people from diverse backgrounds and the LGBTQIA+ community.

Mariam offers clinical services to students with a humanistic and person-centered approach. She views each student as unique, working collaboratively toward their therapeutic goals taking into account their history, cultural background, perspectives, strengths, and challenges. She uses multiple therapeutic modalities such as ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and the Collaborative Suicidality Assessment and Management Framework to help students with multiple concerns. She enjoys engaging in individual therapy, group therapy, and outreach efforts. In her free time, she’s probably hanging out with her loved ones (including her cat Izzy), playing Animal Crossing, or cooking.
