Thank you for visiting to learn more about therapy options to support a healthier life.
I am a licensed mental health counselor working with adult clients in the state of New Mexico. My goal as a counselor is to provide a safe, caring environment to assist you in working through challenging seasons of life.
I offer tailored support for therapists and health professionals, as well as for highly sensitive people. In addition to psychotherapy, I provide wellness consulting for organizations.
I hope that in our work together, you will feel supported and accompanied on your unique journey of healing and growth.
Counseling Focus Areas
The natural world offers much in the way of healing, from a quieter place to reconnect with feelings, to a guide for experiencing the seasons of life, and a chance to observe and relate to wildlife, the landscape, and natural phenomena. Experiencing nature and exploring ways to care for nature can both be great sources of healing and meaning. I offer Nature Walk and Talk Therapy in the Las Cruces, NM area.
Narrative therapy provides a way to harness the power of story for healing. This means that we work together to:
understand where your story came from and where you want it to go
identify and externalize negative messages that falsely define you
identify the strengths that have gotten you through your toughest challenges
visualize the story you want to live and start to create it.
Envisioning the future you want and can see yourself living has so much power in helping you get there.
My goal in grief counseling is to provide compassionate care and a supportive environment for clients experiencing the pain of loss. This means freedom from judgment or pressure to “move on” from grief. Grief looks and feels different for each person. It is my hope that through counseling you will feel seen, heard, supported and accompanied. Grief counseling is also available for the loss of pets and other special animals.
Support for Highly Sensitive People
Being a highly sensitive person (HSP) or empath can mean that you take in more and process more deeply the input from your surroundings and other people. You may have been told throughout your life that you’re “too sensitive.” Being a highly sensitive person is not a disorder and brings with it many strengths and gifts. If you see yourself as an HSP, we can work together on approaches that help you live a more peaceful and empowered life.
Support for Healthcare Workers
The healthcare workforce has faced tremendously challenging conditions in recent years. Burnout and other threats to wellbeing are a constant. I offer tailored support to take into account the need to process traumatic work experiences and grief, and to find a sustainable balance for work and life. I work with medical professionals, fellow therapists and other helping professionals, veterinary professionals and more. Please reach out if you work in the healthcare field and need of support for wellbeing.
