Life Healing Center of Santa Fe, NM Rude, Disrespectful, Uncaring, Traumatizing Santa Fe New Mexico
Two years ago I went to the Life Healing Center and was discharged into a Psyche hospital based on a lie that I said that I would jump off of the overpass. I was cutting with rocks to relieve stress brought on by a triggering primary therapist named, Jauna Kipness. Jauna was great at teaching DBT but did not know how to treat severe trauma and dissociation like she professed.
For the last two weeks, I have been trying to go back to LHC because Darby Long the breathwork therapist, Pasha Hogan in Creative Recovery and Yoga, Morgan in Somatics, and Cynthia in Equine therapy, Laura Basset my core group therapist and art therapist was absolutely fantastic, not to mention the sweet and wonderful CA's; Both Julie's, Paula, and Mrs. [continued below]....
Today, June 6, 2013 on a very triggering day, my birthmother's birthday. She abused me physically, sexually, mentally, and emotionally as a little girl. Anyways, I received a call from the intake person telling me that the clinical director, Tempie, would not accept me because the biased, Dr. Raicu told Tempie that there was no way that I could have done enough healing work to be able to come back. Chrissie told me yesterday, June 5, 2013 that Tempie tried calling my therapist three different times and left three different messages. My therapist has caller Id and can look back and see who all has called. Tempie only called once and left one voicemail and that was 7 days ago. So, I was lied to, told that I basically haven't done anything to help myself get better and that I'm not healed enough to do their program when I am back to work almost full-time. I am the Assistant Director, Restoration Specialist, Environmentalist, and now a Board member (who is paid which is rare for a board member) for a very large Environmental Agency, PRN Advanced EMT IV and Advanced Outdoor and Water Rescue Tech, and the courts know who I am and that I had a suicide attempt brought on by the wrong medications that were forced upon me two and half years ago and they even let me work with children and advocate for them in a court setting because they KNOW that I am doing so much better. So, Tempie, who may I add that I tried calling twice and left two voicemails never returned my calls and I am the one seeking treatment.
Dr. Raicu and Tempie never called me and never talked with my therapist who has spent well over 7, 800 hours with me in session alone since December 2011, not to mention the many, many phone sessions. They didn't even hear my voice.
Obviously this treatment center would have never worked out for me because if Dr. Raicu and Tempie, wouldn't talk with me or my therapist who has worked with my trauma disorders for over 34+ years, longer than that ignorant doctor and ignorant clinical director, Tempie and wouldn't listen or even talk with me, the one who is seeking treatment, then I do not recommend going to this treatment facility for "trauma" related issues. It is very toxic.
Breathwork, Somatics, Creative Recovery, Equine Therapy, and Art Therapy were good but if the doctor isn't even on board then I suggest for others to go somewhere else. You can also do these things on your own, but I suggest you find a great psychologist who knows and understands Trauma, for there are very, very few in this world.
How dare somebody put what intensive, hard work that I have done on myself to get where I am at today down and say that I basically haven't done s@$# and that I'm not good enough or healed enough to come back and to get even more healing.
