Germaine Bartlett-Graff, MA in Counseling Intern

Born and raised in Taos, New Mexico, Germaine has dedicated herself to serving the local community. She has worked as an outdoor and experiential educator both in Taos and abroad, helping youth and adolescents develop a connection with themselves and the world around them.

Germaine‚Äôs passion for teaching young people and exploring the natural world with them, provides youth with the opportunity to cultivate a greater awareness of themselves and the world in which they live, which in turn enables them to feel more embodied and grounded.

Experiencing the healing properties of the natural world first hand is what inspired Germaine to pursue her Masters in Counseling at New Mexico Highlands University in order to better serve the local community. As an intern, Germaine strives to cultivate a strong therapeutic relationship and to help bring awareness to the mind-body connection in the healing process.
