Nicole Ortiz, LMHC

Director of Clinical Services

Nicole Ortiz joined Life Healing Center as a primary therapist in February 2019. With a background working with those struggling with addiction and trauma, Nicole believes in working with individuals to promote self-awareness, authenticity, and personal growth while examining what gives their lives meaning. As a therapist, Nicole works closely with clients to facilitate mental health, self-acceptance, and growth. Nicole works together with the client to discover clarity, heal limiting wounds, and cultivate the true self. Nicole specializes in helping those impacted by posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), trauma, addiction, negative thought patterns and distortions, life transitions, and performance anxiety.

Nicole believes that all people have the potential to discover their inner truth. Working in the field of behavioral health is her life’s calling, and after receiving an undergraduate degree in educational psychology from the University of New Mexico, she earned a Master of Arts in counseling with a specialization in grief, loss, and trauma from Southwestern College in Santa Fe. Nicole has worked closely with those suffering from addiction at the agency level and is honored and thrilled to be a part of the Life Healing Center family as the director of clinical services.
