My Approach to Helping
I have been a Licensed Counselor in the state of New Mexico and Somatic Therapist incorporating mind-body work in my therapeutic and holistic services since 1990. I have maintained a thriving private practice, Odyssey Counseling, since 1990 and employ several therapists, holistic practitioners, life coaches, certified peer support workers, and administrative support personnel.
I absolutely love helping people establish goals and work on becoming the best version they can be. I myself have engaged in a robust treatment regimen in my own healing and growth over the last 25 years seeking out and receiving counseling, energy work, holistic services, spiritual mentorship and guidance, and more. I truly believe I can't take others where I have not been, so receiving services is necessary to facilitate my own growth which has been empowering and a must.
I have a holistic practice, Resilience Integrative Services as well as Shifting Perspectives Training Institute through which I train and mentor other professionals and the general public in addition to my fourth business Allies for First Responders. I have over 25 years helping first responders, health care workers, and other trauma based careers like child protection, OMI, etc. Included in my repertoire of specialty areas are PTSD, acute stress, depression, anxiety, and grief. I am trained in EMDR and a receiver of EMDR many times in my journey, a powerful modality I've used since 2000 in addition to CBT, guided visualization, EFT, Wholistic Kinesiology, Reiki, and more. Because I strongly believe in the whole mind, body, soul connection I actively utilize holistic modalities in addressing my clients’ mental, physical, and emotional issues of course only when clients are open to this approach.
I not only love and assist humans but also provide holistic services for animals. It is my true passion and life purpose promote healing in both these areas.
I take most insurances and also see people for services who pay out of pocket at a reduced rate.
