Ronda Jarvis, M.S.W., LCSW

Ronda Jarvis is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the states of New Mexico and Florida trained as a psychotherapist in evidence-based trauma modalities.

We have all experienced painful wounds, hardship, and even tragedy in our lifetime. People who live with overwhelming stress, grief, and loss often experience debilitating symptoms that have their origins in imprinted memories or traumatic responses. These life-altering symptoms often reside in the mind and body and may manifest in distressing emotions such as anxiety, depression, panic, agitation, anger, emptiness, shame, harsh self-criticism, and disconnection

My approach to working with individuals who have experienced overwhelming stress and/or trauma is through true listening, compassion, and honoring one’s life story. It is often through our struggles and adversity that one’s true strength and resilience are revealed.

Utilizing research-supported interventions, together, we will cultivate a new pathway, one that fosters greater awareness, self-compassion, and wisdom to tap into your body and mind’s innate capacity to heal, find inner peace, and well-being.
