LPCC | Lead Supervisor | Therapist
Pronouns: She/Her

Ilse is a northern New Mexico native. She has been serving the population of New Mexico (Albuquerque) in the fields of addiction, trauma and mood disorders since 2007.

She studied psychology at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA, counseling at the University of New Mexico, and then began an internship with The Evolution Group.

Ilse’s work focuses on trauma recovery, substance abuse/dependence, anxiety, anger and depression. As a trauma-informed yoga teacher and practitioner, Ilse is aware of the deeply important role that physical health and wellbeing plays in the recovery process from mental and emotional challenges.

In her free time, Ilse chases after her son and dogs, practices yoga, and buys way more houseplants than she needs.


“Most of what I know I’ve learned by falling and getting back up. The ground has taught me more about flight than the clouds ever could.”
