Hillary Wolfe, Teen & Young Adult Therapist
I am a Durango native, born and raised. Having lived here my whole life, I have deep roots in this community and understand the joys and struggles of living in a rural town. I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Human Services from Fort Lewis College, and my Masters in Clinical Social Work from New Mexico Highlands University. My passion is working with children, adolescents and families but I also have experience working in field-based settings, inpatient, substance abuse and out-patient settings with both children and adults.
Like the stereotypical Durangatang my family and I love the outdoors; skiing, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, you name it and we are up for it. When I am not spending time with my family or outside, you will find me reading and developing my therapeutic skills.
I have spent hundreds of hours training in order to serve my clients in the most skillful way I possibly can. I use a solution-focused philosophy, believing children and families come into therapy to work towards solutions that will allow them to navigate their lives more skillfully. The therapeutic approaches I use, proven evidenced based approaches, are informed by how our brains work and what they need to promote healing.
I know that contacting a therapist can be intimidating so please let me know if there is any way I can make it easier for you and/or your family.
Hillary is certified in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and is a Registered Play Therapist, (RPT). She is also trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Certified in Synergetic Play Therapy.
