“My approach to therapy is one of compassion and non-judgment with the goal of helping my clients learn to approach themselves in similar ways. I believe that the therapeutic space is sacred and I feel honored to be a witness to every person’s unique journey. I will never take for granted the trust that is placed in me when a person chooses to let me into the most vulnerable parts of themselves.”

Lindsey Barela

Licensed Therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and have been licensed in New Mexico since 2011. Throughout my career I have been fortunate to provide individual, group, couples, and family therapy around a variety of struggles, including relational conflict, anxiety, depression, gender identity, sexual orientation, substance use, grief/loss, stress, and life transitions. I received my Master’s Degree in Counselor Education and my Bachelor’s Degrees in Psychology and English from The University of New Mexico. Additionally, I completed in-depth training and supervision in Functional Family Therapy, consisting of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing/Motivational Enhancement Therapies, and Mindfulness-based approaches. I see clients individually from tweens/teens through adulthood and particularly enjoy working with couples, families, and the LGBTQIA+ community.

I was born and raised in New Mexico and have spent the majority of my life here in Albuquerque. I have always been interested in personal growth and development and for that reason I believe that much of what I can offer others comes from maintaining a constant curiosity about myself. While I come to this work as a professional, I also have a keen awareness of my own struggles and strengths. I am someone who has faced and overcome challenges as well. I utilize my knowledge and skills to support others in doing the same.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my dogs. I love to read (when I can find the time!), I am a big fan of highlighters and fuzzy socks, and I love a good binge-watch session. For relaxation my two very favorite things are hot tea and hot springs.

REVIEW FOR:

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.
