"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 integrative medicine colleagues, naturopaths 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 amazing, supportive of 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, and continues to feed my wellness lifestyle.
The simplicity of silence within natural surroundings continues to clear my mind while strengthening my intuitive, spiritual aspects.
I grew up around photographers and healers. I continue hunting down wisdom related to what creates a self-healing body and mind and related esoteric ponderings. I traveled the world photographing and creating bodies of work stemming from grants.
I also found my way to the Navajo reservation in 1978. I stayed there until 1991, photographing, learning and collaborating with elders, artists, and healers in their tradition. My rural roots and experiences within nature aligned with their teachings, and my knowledge of physics, integrative healing, art, and the importance of connecting with one's deep sense of self. 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 and study in India, Egypt and Montana. I work with individuals, those whom I mentor, and within workshops.
