Having worked as a licensed clinical mental health therapist in a myriad of settings: a treatment center, shelter for battered families, DWI prevention, and private practice in our New Mexico community, gratitude remains for individuals and their families who sought to recover from life's challenges.
Working with adults from diverse backgrounds experiencing life transitions, relational difficulties, grief and loss, aging, and care-giving to an elderly loved one are presented with courage and hope for change into a better way of life. COVID has entered into our lives with its necessary precautions; hence, this counseling room is an empathic place to share "how COVID has effected your life."
And in all of life, both you and I seek justice, equity, inclusion and a sense of belonging mindful that in this counseling room: Safety First! is offered and prevails.
Each of us has a story and our work together is to help redirect and make sense of your narrative in a safe and non-judgmental space as "we" explore the unique nature of your struggles. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is addressed whereby thoughts and actions lead to core beliefs hurtful to one's own self as well as other therapeutic practices which include Mindfulness Practices, Solution-Focused Therapy, Positive Psychology Therapy and an Approach to Trauma-Informed Care each held in confidentiality, compassion, and empathic listening; it is an alliance between therapist and "member" to be at the center of each session.
NOTE: subscribers 29 years and older are preferred; a member is not turned away as long as reasons for therapy can be served by this counseling room's specializations; however, an individual cannot be younger than 21 years.
From the University of Southern California, a Bachelor of Arts in English cum laude was awarded. Eventually, a move to New Mexico was made to attend St John's College Graduate Institute whereby a Master of Arts in Liberal Arts was received. Studies continued with Pacifica Graduate Institute, Carpinteria, CA; hence a recipient of a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and Doctor of Philosophy in Depth Psychology.
Travels to meet youth from all over the world were made to Western Europe, Mexico, Israel, and China. In China, a school-teacher-guide asked, "Please spell psychology." With a right index finger positioned on the top of her left hand, written in Mandarin was psychology: "Oh, Bea, psychology means you see my Heart."
I am privileged to be chosen as your therapist.

I feel safe and seen by Bea. She is kind, supportive, knowledgable, and I appreciate her attention to my needs. She feels more like a friend than a therapist.
