About My Clients
I collaboratively work with clients in re-connecting with their innate strength and resilience in their journey to face change and heal unresolved issues. I treat a number of issues including unresolved complex trauma, addiction, co-occurring disorders, life transitions, anxiety, depression, grief & loss, relationship difficulties, low self esteem, Adult Children of Alcoholics, impact & insight into historical trauma, and sexual abuse.
My Background and Approach
I am originally from Taos NM and have an MSW in clinical social work from NM Highlands University, a BFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts. My approach is based on who you are and what is relevant for you in order to be your best self. I use a variety of modalities that support a clients ability to reconnect with their inner-self and identify ways in which they want to make positive changes. I am warm, empathetic and supportive but not afraid to challenge clients when necessary. I utilize evidence based and creative approaches such as CBT, Strength-Based approach, Trauma Informed CBT, Family Systems, DBT, Jungian art based skills and concepts, Assertive communication skills, and Mindfulness Based. I currently hold active LCSW licenses in both California and New Mexico.
