What I do

I offer brief and long term coaching and counseling services to individuals. I am a certified coach with the International Coaching Federation. This coaching credential enables me to provide professional coaching services to individuals or groups in any location or setting. I am a licensed Registered Nurse (RN) and a Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) in the State of New Mexico. My PMHNP credential allows me to provide advanced practice counseling services and prescribe medications for clients who live in New Mexico.

My Approach

My approach to my work is holistic and integral. This means I address multiple perspectives. Body, mind, and spirit are viewed as an integrated and perfect whole. Emotions, beliefs, and intentions are integrated with physical experiences. Familial, cultural, and social patterns are considered. My personal and professional life experiences also inform my approaches to my work. I assist you to make sense of your experiences, to identify meaningful patterns, and to discover unique and perfect ways to get to where you want to go. I support you as you identify and implement the changes you desire for yourself. I recognize that my Presence is an important factor in our work together. I value and frequently employ my intuitive skills, and I encourage my clients to do the same.


A message from Dr. Hess

My personal life experiences greatly enhance my professional credentials. It is the examination of my own life and circumstances, my surrender to that which is greater than myself, and my own search for meaning that has led me to this time and place where I now joyfully and skillfully give that which I now am to my clients and to the world.
