Holly Hemminger

(LCSW)

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 5 years now and have experience working in school-based, psychiatric in-patient, 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!

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.

Holly really knows how to get to the root of the issue that I'm dealing with. She's experienced, kind, efficient, caring. I'm really loving the work she is helping me with.

Holly is understanding, kind and compassionate. When we can’t schedule a phone or video session, she is available via messaging and always responds quickly. Holly has guided me successfully through some very difficult times.

Written by A.L. on Feb 01, 2021 after counseling with Holly for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and career difficulties

Holly is extremely compassionate and sensitive to my needs and experiences. She always asks me which direction I want to go instead of making suggestions on what resolution I should choose. She custom builds help to my specific experiences and she is a very good listener. In the short time I've worked with Holly I feel I have accomplished so much. She responds quickly and all of her responses in messages and during our session are genuine and so helpful.

So far Holly has been extremely empathetic, kind, and understanding of my unique (or not so unique) situation. I'm reasonably new to counseling, so it is nice that she listens, but also steers conversations.

Holly has been extremely helpful to me. There were times when knowing that I had her to talk to , kept me from falling into a deep depression.. I would strongly recommend Holly to anyone !

A few sessions in with Holly, and so far so good! I appreciate how she gets you to focus on your goals for therapy at the outset (incredibly important, I think). I like that she has a question for me to consider, or an action to take following each session. *Very* responsive and timely through messaging, and that's very much appreciated!
