Blake chose TCL because she enjoys playing a role in the changes that parents make to improve their and their child’s quality of life. “Let's break some cycles together!” She chose play therapy because as an educator she was always drawn to supporting the children with the most intense behaviors and watching those behaviors improve with the use of positive guidance/NHA approaches. Blake also experienced significant traumas within her own life and would like to be part of others healing journey! Blake Studied at NMHU Facundo Valdez School of social work where she completed her Masters. Blake was raised in Connecticut, lived in New Hampshire for 4 years, and has been in New Mexico for 4 years! Blake has a 12 y.o, husky mix named Madison, a Siamese cat, and a black cat. She likes hiking, rock climbing, reading, yoga, and plants!
