My name is Edin Barrera. It’s an honor and a blessing that I have been missioned to Cristo Rey High School by my Jesuit provincial. I’m currently entering my seventh year as a Jesuit seminarian in the Society of Jesus.
Before coming to Sacramento, I had the honor to work as a clinical counselor in Chicago. My work there consisted in accompanying couples, teenagers, and victims of domestic violence in coping with separation, divorce, anxiety, and depression. I’m blessed that I have arrived to a wonderful community that is committed to the transformation and education of students.
As an immigrant, counselor, and as a religious man preparing for the priesthood, it is my desire and hope that we can form a safe space of belonging, understanding, and transformation. Although, I will be working directly with freshman and sophomores; other grades are welcome to chat with me. Our counseling office will always be open. Please feel free to call me anytime at 916-733-2660 x 1030.

Dear Cristo Rey Community, it is an honor to continue serving this community,
As the majority of our students at Cristo Rey HS, I too came from a low-income background and have endured many of the same obstacles as our students. I was also the first in my family to attend college, and obtain a Master’s degree.
I have worked in the promotion of education for over ten years. During this time, I had the pleasure to work with a diverse group of individuals in college counseling, recruitment, and teaching, particularly first generation, low-income students. I attended the University of California Davis, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in International Relations and Spanish. In 2018, I obtained a Master's of Science in School Counseling, with a PPS credential, from Sacramento State University.
My philosophy of school counseling is a critical element to my approach in guiding students, my theoretical framework, and the process and nature of establishing a counseling guidance program. As a School Counselor, my goals are to provide unconditional positive regard and advocate for all students’ success, by implementing a comprehensive academic, career, and personal evidence base guidance program, while upholding to the ACA code of ethics, and collaborating with all school and community stakeholders.

I am very happy and honored to have joined the Cristo Rey Community as the new College Counselor.
I was born and raised in Mexico and immigrated to the United States as a child and despite challenging obstacles in my life as an immigrant, I learned to overcome these through the help of family and mentors. Sacramento has now become my second home and I am blessed to be able to continue supporting the high school student community, who hold a very special place in my heart.
As a Dreamer, first generation and low-income student I am very proud in accomplishing a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and currently pursuing Master’s Degree in School Counseling at Sacramento State. My goal to strive and have a positive impact on first generation and underrepresented students is what motivated me to pursue a Master’s Degree in School Counseling. I want to be a greater resource for students to better assist their unique and personal needs in order to change the retention and graduation rates in high schools. As an underrepresented student myself, I also want to advocate for students and families’ success by making the university/college application process easier through guidance and understanding.
I look forward to working with the great community of students and parents at Cristo Rey High School and encourage students and parents to reach out to me or the counseling department with any questions you may have.

My name is Jackie Vargas-Oñate I am excited to be able to guide our Cristo Rey Alumni and be a part of their educational journey.
Raised in Sacramento, as a first-generation college graduate my educational journey was not an easy one. After transferring from Sacramento City College to Sacramento State University, I was overwhelmed and inadequately prepared for the rigor of college coursework. Not knowing where to go for help I soon found myself on academic dismissal and out of my way of receiving an education.
However, unwilling to give up I re-enrolled at Sacramento City College and sought out resources and mentorship that has lasted a lifetime. Thanks to my community I was able to successfully transfer and graduate from the University of California, Riverside with a BA in Ethnic Studies. Continuing my academic pursuit, I went on to receive a MA in Educational Counseling with a PPS credential from San Jose State.
Having worked for community college counseling and UC undergraduate admissions, I intend on using this knowledge in helping our Alumni. No matter where you are in your educational journey, I am here to help you reach your goals. I hope to pay forward what all of my mentors have done for me by helping the next generation.
I look forward to meeting and working with the Cristo Rey Community!
