Grounded Psychotherapy | Embodied Mysticism

I can’t tell you what a relief it has been to work with someone who has such an amazing gift for seeing through the bullshit…. reflecting it back with compassion while offering support & empowerment.

“I am a relational trauma detective. I use my gift of second sight and clinical psychotherapy skills to glean an understanding of what’s really happening (or what really happened) in your relationship and/or family of origin. Once we get the history straight, we can begin connecting with your true and authentic sense of self-worth.”
—Luisa Kolker MA LPCC

Luisa has a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is a licensed psychotherapist (LPCC) in the state of New Mexico and has post-graduate training in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), psychodrama and in 12-step recovery models.

As a referring therapist for The Meadows treatment center in Wickenburg, AZ, Luisa has been trained in the family-of-origin emotional trauma resolution model of Pia Mellody, and for several years she participated in ongoing case-consultation with Pia Mellody (author of “Facing Codependence” and “Facing Love Addiction”).

Therapy sessions* re-establish a connection between body, mind, and spirit, embracing the maxim that depression, addictive patterns and other symptoms are adaptations to a loss of connection with one’s own inherent worth and connection with spirit. When there are lost, exiled or unknown parts of one’s inner self, these become relegated to a person’s unconscious “shadow” material. That shadow material has a tendency to make itself known through seemingly unrelated external events, illnesses, interpersonal difficulties and even accidents.

The goal of psychotherapy is to develop emotional resilience and develop a conscious relationship your authentic self. This intimacy with your self ultimately expresses through a new ability to be relational (rather than reactive) with others. Your experience of life becomes a reflection of your self-respect, emotional maturity, and self-love, rather than a reflection of unresolved shame and pain.

The relational-mysticism psychotherapy process is a soul journey in which we’ll work together to help you strengthen your emotional, spiritual and behavioral skills.

I feel honored to hold a respectful space for immigrant, BIPOC and LGBTQ communities.
