During my Masters Program at Southwestern College, I obtained a certificate as a Gestalt Therapist by the Gestalt Institute of Santa Fe. I graduated from Southwestern College in March 2006 and began working at Life Healing Center full-time as the evening therapist. Because of the combination of training, I had the confidence to take the leap into private practice. Since January 2007, I have had an amazing journey attaining my LPCC, cultivating a successful private practice, and growing in ways I could never have imagined.
I have presented Play Workshops in various settings including the International Gestalt Creativity Conference, The Santa Fe Healthcare Network, and the New Mexico Association for Spiritual, Ethical and Religious Values in Counseling Conference. I facilitated weekly groups at the Santa Fe Recovery Center from 2006 to 2012. I have also worked with organizations in Santa Fe to improve employee relations utilizing “play” as a vehicle for conflict resolution.
I am currently offering clinical supervision services, community “Play Days,” and experiential lectures once a month on how to create a healthy relationship with your emotions. I teach Career and Life Development at Southwestern College as well as in the Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor (LADAC) Certificate Program at Santa Fe Community College.
Southwestern College has been a valuable foundation to springboard into my career as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.
