Hi! I'm Sheila Ciminera, a licensed clinical social worker in Albuquerque, NM (licensed in both California and New Mexico). 

Through trainings, all of us helping professionals can strengthen our ability to compassionately serve our communities (and care for ourselves!) I have trained a wide range of organizations providing community mental health, unhoused youth and adult care, medical wraparound services, substance use treatment, crisis management, mobile care for severe mental illness, trauma treatment, legal representation to underserved New Mexicans, gender responsive care, and more.

I am highly experienced in the following areas:  

  • compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma

  • trauma informed care

  • substance use and harm reduction 

  • mindfulness

  • reintegration after incarceration

  • oppression and racial trauma 

  • social justice

And I can help your staff in other ways- I provide crisis debriefing, process groups for compassion fatigue and/or racial trauma, consultation, and retreats.
