As a private practice licensed clinical counselor for over 20 years, I’ve also had many years of mental health counseling experience in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I’ve studied and practiced a variety of techniques: psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, crisis intervention, mediation, relationship enhancement therapy, and others. My clinical experience includes working with individuals of all ages, groups, couples and families.
My extensive professional training, education, supervision and consultation have led me to specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, grief and relationships. I have the ability to focus on one of these issues, yet see you as a whole person with problems to be discussed.
Personally, my interest is in helping clients develop an understanding and awareness of the various levels of self, helping them to become more and more of who they genuinely are. I bring the unconscious into conscious awareness to promote insight and resolve conflict, and stress the role of thinking about how we feel and what we do. Promoting healing is my forte.
