I graduated in 1995 and worked in the mental health field as a counselor in various agencies in NM, eventually becoming an academic advisor for 7 years. In 2007, I decided to take time off from counseling and started a business doing American Clay installations. This is a plastering process that is eco-friendly and allowed me to express my creativity in a “hands-on” way. Last summer I took a course in hypnotherapy and became re-energized about being able to help people with hypnosis. In September 2012 I opened a private practice providing counseling and hypnotherapy services. In utilizing therapeutic hypnotherapy I am able to help create lasting, positive change. My counseling orientation is solution-focused, and in combination with the hypnotherapy processes my clients learn to use their thoughts and mind to manage emotional distress, unpleasant physical symptoms, or to change habits and behaviors. The education at SWC was the best. I feel fortunate to have had that educational experience as a basis for my counseling practice.
