“All roads lead to Rome”. I’m sure you have heard that expression. It’s one I use a lot in my sessions. It means different paths can take one to the same goal. There are many reasons for wanting to get into therapy. There are many forms of therapy that lead to healing, and there are many different understandings of what “healing” means. To me, healing is mostly about becoming one with ourselves, maybe for the first time. My specialization in therapy is trauma and addiction. Often, a common road to addictions is having a history of trauma. A goal in...


Hello. Welcome to exploring new possibilities. Do you wake up worrying about the same things every day and wonder “Why do I feel this way?” Have you tried to make changes in your life, only to find you fall back into repeating old patterns? Do you isolate, feel shame, lonely, and disconnected from people, places and things that used to be pleasurable? Do you feel confused and have a hard time making decisions? Maybe you feel lost or physically and mentally exhausted? We all experience a myriad of challenges throughout life. Let me help you identify your strengths and resilience...


Hello and welcome. My name is Debra, I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of New Mexico.

Whether it is to have a better relationship/marriage, learn how to deal with depression, have less anxiety or parenting struggles, I can help. I love helping people to be the best versions of themselves and giving them the tools to help with varying hurdles in their life. Life can be...


I am honored to work with women who want to re-connect with what matters most to them in life, love, and purpose. In my sessions with women and girls, we create space for presence, and feel into what is alive for you right now with compassion. This brings courage and deep awareness powerful enough to melt through emotional pain and suffering. The delightful discovery of the awakening woman is that her own feminine energy, although greatly undervalued in this culture, is her greatest resource for healing and realizing the depth of herself. In today’s world of distractions, it is difficult...


You may be wondering what therapy is like, and if you’ve never been to therapy it may feel foreign, but it is really an experience in personal growth. Everyone has challenges, but therapy can help you get beyond life issues that are draining your energy. If you have gone to therapy, you know that a good therapist joins you in that journey and provides the support needed to make life choices manageable and change negative patterns causing dissatisfaction in your life. My approach to helping is to validate your strengths and maximize your ability to positively cope through life challenges....


My life mantra is to use words, art, and movement to build bridges, tear down walls, tend to wounds, empower individuals, and eradicate loneliness and shame. My clinical career has ranged from working in refugee resettlement, schools, and nonprofit mental health agencies to responding to 911 behavioral-health calls alongside law enforcement as part of the Mobile Crisis Team and conducting assessments in emergency departments. I am an EMDR-trained therapist and specialize in trauma recovery and reconciliation. There is no single intervention that works for everyone, so I pull from different theoretical frameworks and evidence-based modalities to help you heal and...



I am passionate about seeing my clients meet their goals and discover a sense of positive self-esteem and confidence. I believe everyone should have the skills to meet future endeavors they want and deserve, however I also know past issues can sometimes be barrier to this.

I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents from ages 3 to 18 years old, and dealing in areas of anxieties, depression, suicide, anger management, gender identities, and the list goes on. I also have...

I am so grateful that you have taken the time to begin your journey of health and wellness. I would very much like to walk that path with you. Let me tell you who I am, professionally. My name is Debra Benalli, but I go by Deb. New Mexico has been home to me since 2000 and I have a very deep love for the cultures and the people of my state. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health...


You are here, reading this, because of your courage. Recognizing it’s time to make changes is the first, most important step, and I commend you. Despite what social media would have us believe, no one’s life is perfect. We all face challenges that keep us from living our most authentic lives. Therapy is a sacred space where fears and pain are seen with compassion and without judgment. It is an opportunity to explore the thoughts and behaviors that are holding you back and to connect with your strengths in order to create your best life. To be your true self....

I have a deep passion for helping individuals improve their emotional well-being and overcome challenges related to mental health. I incorporate evidence-based techniques such as CBT, solution-focused therapy, a strength-based framework, and always work from a trauma-informed approach....
