Geneane Lazo, M.A.Ed., LPC

Geneane graduated with a Master of Arts in clinical mental health counseling from Nicholls State University in 2017. In 2015, she received a two-year theology certificate from Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, LA.  She then began her counseling career as a college and career counselor with at risk youth in the inner-city public-school system in her home state of Louisiana. This is where she became most passionate about working with children & adolescents, specifically those who have encountered traumatic events in their lives.

From this point she took a big leap of faith and decided to take a position in Colorado at a community health clinic in a small rural mountain town, where she hoped to utilize her Spanish speaking abilities to help break barriers in the mental health field among the Hispanic population. This position is where she gained experience in working with medical physicians, psychiatrists, and patients of all ages (3-65), races/ethnicities, gender, individual to couples, and a variety of mental health disorders from chronic illness to complex PTSD to postpartum depression.

During her time providing services in a clinical setting, she became certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy and began her training journey to become a certified synergetic play therapist.

Geneane utilizes a person-centered and holistic approach in her therapeutic work.  She works with the client and the family to determine which approach may be most beneficial as each client is unique and each circumstance exceptional.  She believes collaboration with the client lends itself to achieving the clients’ goals and maintaining an engaging life. In addition to traditional psychotherapy, she may also use a combination of art therapy, yoga, education, mindfulness, breath work, faith, aromatherapy, ecotherapy, and music.

During her spare time she enjoys spending time outdoors hiking and kayaking, doing CrossFit, attending her local church, traveling, and spending time with her son, family and friends.
