"Kent is a creative, highly intuitive and compassionate presence. His deep connection with nature, extensive education and training, and his initiation as a true healer, allowed for my experience to go far beyond traditional therapeutic modalities. I am forever grateful." ~ SB, Santa Fe, NM
As a seasoned board licensed psychotherapist, I've maintained a private practice over the last 25 years in Colorado and New Mexico.
My clinical skills have continually improved, while staying abreast of advancements and adding EMDR certification and hypnotherapy training.
I've also learned from (and network with) integrative medicine colleagues, Naturopath Doctors and others to round out my skills while drawing from diverse perspectives.
As a kid, I hung out extensively in nature in rural western Colorado. My family was consistently supportive of one another, encouraging adventure, diversity and the development of our own unique perceptions and self-sufficiency. I was also gifted with athleticism that paid my way through college. Currently cycling, ecstatic dance, yoga, core work, nutrition and integrative healing friends comprise my wellness lifestyle.
The simplicity of silence within natural surroundings quiets my mind while my intuitive, and spiritual energy is renewed.
Growing up around photographers and healers. I continue hunting down images and wisdom related to what creates a self-healing body and mind and related ponderings. I travel the world photographing and creating bodies of work via grants, and commercial funding as a professional photographer and videographer.
After finding my way to the Navajo reservation in 1978. I stayed there until 1991. While there, I by invitation was photographing, learning and collaborating with elders, artists, healers and putting cameras in indigenous kids' hands.
My rural roots and experiences within nature aligned with their teachings. My knowledge of physics, integrative healing, art, and the importance of connecting with one's deep sense of self, continues dove-tailing as a consultant and colleague with various indigenous healers and scholars here and in Canada. Most recently, I was a Clinical Specialist with the Navajo tribe to establish an indigenous wilderness-based program for Native adolescents.
A portion of my private practice work is dedicated to ceremonial work as a healing modality. These gifts align with what I innately was born with, and then further solidified by time with Native American healers along with study in India, Egypt and Montana.
I choose intuitively who I am led to work with as clients. I show up, and get my mind around what a client's needs are, or within deeper work, what you soul desires. The gifts I was born with as a healer, combined with clinical skills, and time with various Wisdom Keepers far and wide, is what I bring into our collaborative efforts to assist in your inner freedom.
I work with individuals, couples, families, those whom I mentor, and within workshops.
