Jolette Crawford “Your healing is yours and it is a gift to your ancestors, your community and the generations to come.” Jolette has been working to remember, and re-center the powerful and transformative medicines of knowing yourself, your peoples and the land around you.
For over 16 years, healing has flowed through Jolette as compassionate and active listening, advocacy and empowerment, holding and re-telling of shared histories of resistance and survival as well as working to identify ways to organize, amplify and protect historically marginalized individuals.
When people honor her with their stories of survival, resistance, grief, loss and recovery, Jolette invites them to take on the arm of alchemy to see the medicine muddled in the pain using somatic body work, grounding and breathing techniques, nature, land, music and so many other
wellness tools that are often at our reach but overlooked. Decolonizing and examining western theories on mental health while raising and honoring indigenous methods of wellness is a personal arm of resistance that Jolette incorporates into her psychotherapeutic offerings.

As a compassionate multicultural therapist, I am dedicated to fostering a safe and inclusive therapeutic space where individuals from diverse backgrounds can embark on their journey towards healing and self-discovery. My therapeutic approach is rooted in evidence-based practices, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). With a focus on cultural sensitivity and trauma-informed care, I empower my clients to navigate life's challenges and cultivate resilience.
I am currently a Clinical Psychologist providing psychotherapy for adults in Albuquerque. I have been in private practice at Behavior Therapy Associates for the past two years. I have worked in variety of clinical settings, including community health centers, an internship at Southern Arizona VA in Tucson, and a post-doctoral fellowship, specializing in cognitive behavior therapy at the Cognitive Behavior Institute of Albuquerque. My work has encompassed providing individual and group therapy to adults from diverse cultural backgrounds who have experienced trauma, in addition to those experiencing Depression and Anxiety disorders.
Having worked with clients from various cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, I am deeply attuned to the impact of cultural factors on mental health. I approach therapy with cultural humility, recognizing the importance of understanding and respecting the unique experiences and perspectives of each individual.
I am committed to providing a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings. I prioritize a client-centered approach, valuing the unique strengths and experiences each individual brings to the therapeutic process. Collaboratively, we set goals and work towards creating meaningful and sustainable changes, promoting overall well-being.
