About me

Hello! My name is Holly and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in New Mexico. I have been in the social work field for about 8 years now and have experience working in school-based, psychiatric in-patient, outpatient clinics, and home-based settings. In this experience, I have primarily worked with those experiencing anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, parenting struggles, and issues with life changes/adjustment.
In my approach to counseling, I start with where the client is. What are they satisfied or unsatisfied with currently? What does the client want to gain from working with me? Once desired outcomes are established, I utilize a combination of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, narrative, and solution-focused therapies. I also explore and emphasize a client’s personal strengths in order to promote sustainability.
I go into any new therapist/client relationship with the understanding that I am a stranger who may be asking very difficult questions. With this in mind, I encourage clients to take as much time as they need in our work together, moving at whatever pace they find comfortable. At the end of the day, I want this to be a good experience for you! My hope is to help others to find the peace that they are searching for to be able to lead fulfilling lives.
I look forward to working with you!

Holly has been extraordinarily compassionate and knowledgeable in the several topics we've covered. She has helped me more than any other professional I've worked with, and she provides many different insights and methods of care. I can't recommend her enough!

Great listener and offers valuable feedback when asked for. Provided me with tools to help me deal with my anxiety and overthinking. She has been very understanding and helpful, and is the main reason I came back to BetterHelp rather than seeking help locally.
