The Southern Ute Behavioral Health Division excited to announce that we have hired a Native Connections Program Behavioral Health Therapist!
Please welcome Stephanie Garcia, Licensed Professional Counselor. Garcia brings over six years of clinical experience to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe. She has a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from Loyola University in New Orleans and has extensive training working with young children utilizing play therapy. Garcia’s background comes from working with underserved communities and youth in Houston, Massachusetts, and New Orleans, in various mental health settings.
Garcia specializes working in early childhood as well as with adolescents and young adults. While she has a vast knowledge of many behavioral health issues, she will be specializing in working with youth to promote mental health and our efforts to reduce substance usage among our Native American Youth on the Southern Ute Reservation.
We are also proud to say she will be co-host for an upcoming “Native Connections Program: Mental Health is Health” virtual event series on Zoom and also Mental Health Talking Circles which are coming soon!
