Denise Gallegos, LCSW

As a native New Mexican, I came up understanding the importance of culture in how we view the world, in how we process our trauma and pain, and how we return to joy. My own lifetime health challenges, and experience working in medical settings, have allowed me a window into the difficulties faced by those of you who awaken to daily pain, physical discomfort, and feelings of loss over who you used to be. Finding ourselves, even when we feel so changed by violence, injury, stress, or disease, can provide a new path forward. Life, though not the same as before, can be good again. My strongest belief, and experience in doing therapy, is the shadow will pass and together we can find your light again. It is my honor and privilege to create the environment where you are empowered to heal.

I began my career in social services over 30 years ago. I have worked with survivors of violence including sexual assault, assault, domestic violence, and homicide in the roles of advocacy, crisis support, and group counseling.

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.

Even if we have close friends and supportive families it’s often hard to be really honest about our struggles, be they; depression, anxiety, relationship problems, past or present trauma or substance use that has become out of control. I have experience with all of these issues and more. My aim is to create a safe comfortable space where you can be real and explore your patterns at your own pace.

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 build your own self-care toolbox.

My hope for you is that you find spaces where every part of you is welcome. Therapy can be a safe, nonjudgmental place to explore what is preventing you from finding wholeness. In my experience, so much of our suffering stems from disconnection. I want to help you find freedom from whatever is keeping you captive, whether it’s self-doubt, trauma, suicide, shame, internalized oppression, anxiety, depression, isolation, interpersonal conflict, grief/loss, or something else.

Debra Vega-Cowen, LPCC

Hello and welcome. My name is Debra, I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of New Mexico. I have worked with individuals, couples and families seeking counseling for over 15 years, both online and in my private practice. I enjoy helping individuals achieve what they want in life. 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 extremely tough sometimes, and seeking counseling is a valiant first step. We all go through peaks and valleys, but it’s so much better to go through those valleys when you have the right tools in which to deal with the hard times. I hope to be able to help you with your journey.

“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 healing involves movement toward abstinence from the substance or process, reducing the internal pain that drives us away from ourselves and others, and learning how to safely rejoin ourselves and others.
