“My approach to therapy is strengths-based, accepting, and sex-positive. I deeply believe in helping clients examine past traumas and experiences, face present struggles honestly and openly, and create a more positive future. Working on self-compassion, better communication, and clarity about needs and emotions is all important along that journey.”

Laura Wood

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and I consider myself to be a sex therapist, a relationship therapist, and an individual therapist. I’m certified in Perinatal Mental Health, several Gottman Method programs (Levels 1&2, Bringing Baby Home, Seven Principles of Making Marriage Work, Emotion Coaching, and Treating Trauma & Affairs). I’m the Co-Founder of the birth education program Blissborn. I am also a trained hypnotherapist. I am pursuing certification in sex therapy and working toward being a Certified Gottman Therapist.

Working with me, you’ll have access to deep exploration and education, as well as self-esteem and boundaries work. I work with psychodynamic and feminist theory, the Gottman Method, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Communication skills and mindfulness are great ways to learn more about yourself and to feel better. I love working with adult and teenage clients, individuals and couples, and anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, self-esteem issues, postpartum mood disorders, and childbirth. I am compassionate and invested, and I love to listen and collaborate. I don’t believe in giving advice, but instead strive to offer tools and help clients find their own formula for their life.

I grew up in New Mexico. I also work at Dar a Luz Birth & Health Center, located in the beautiful North Valley of Albuquerque — where my family also lives with our two dogs. I feel very lucky to do everything I do — I just skip around smiling most of the time! I am passionate about my work, and I truly love working with clients, and supporting their growth and feeling better and better.

REVIEW FOR:

Lindsey Barela

https://renewnmtherapy.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/line_04.png
Lindsey Barela is an inspired therapist. She and I began working together shortly after my adult son suffered a life altering spinal cord injury. His accident was, of course, devastating and the ramifications were daunting. Every minute of every day felt hard in one way or another. But somehow, every minute of every hour with Lindsey felt gentle. No matter how much anger, fear, resentment or even denial I brought into session each harsh emotion was warmly greeted and gently accepted by Lindsey. Her skilled client-centered approach and confidence in client agency made all the difference in my ability to now find and feel joy pretty much every single day.

I have been seeing Lindsey for 3 years now. I have felt more comfortable and at ease in her care than I ever have in any previous mental health therapist’s care. Having a tremendous amount of trauma to work through has been challenging but with the support, insight, fortitude and encouragement from Lindsey I have been able to tackle these issues head on. I have seen life-altering changes in my behaviors that have positively contributed to my own growth and feelings of self-worth. I HIGHLY recommend Lindsey to anyone who is ready to begin talk therapy. Thank you to Lindsey for the immeasurable benefit you have added to my life.
