      Biography

      Dr. Ulibarri received her B.A. in Psychology and Spanish from Claremont McKenna College, and her M.A. and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Arizona State University. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego. Dr. Ulibarri received a NIMH Research Supplement to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research for her postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at UCSD. Dr. Ulibarri also received postdoctoral training in UCSD’s Division of Global Public Health. Her current research focuses on HIV prevention with highly vulnerable populations such as female sex workers, injection drug users, and high-risk couples along the Mexico-U.S. border, with an emphasis on how gender-based violence, mental health, and substance use intersect with HIV risk behaviors. She also has two studies examining the commercial sexual exploitation of adolescent girls in San Diego County. Her clinical focus is on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strategic Solution Focused Therapy, and Multicultural Therapy for English- and Spanish-speaking individuals, couples, groups, and families.

      Research Interests

      Dr. Ulibarri’s research focuses on HIV prevention in Latino/a communities, with an emphasis on how gender based violence, mental health, and substance use intersect with HIV risk behaviors. She is currently conducting a study on how individual- and relationship-level factors such as psychological distress (e.g., depression and posttraumatic stress disorder), substance use, intimate partner violence, and sexual relationship power are associated with HIV risk behaviors among female sex workers and their non-commercial, steady intimate partners in Mexico.

      Clinical Focus

      Dr. Ulibarri is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in cognitive-behavioral therapy with Spanish-speaking individuals, couples, and families. She is a clinical supervisor for 2nd year practicum students in the SDSU/UCSD Joint Program in Clinical Psychology. In the past, Dr. Ulibarri has taught undergraduate courses in Culture and Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Careers in Psychology, and Introduction to Psychology at San Diego State University and Arizona State University.
