In Remembrance of: Katia Torrelli-Delgado, LMFT, Family and Youth Center Marriage and Family Therapist
Katia Torrelli-Delgado came to TBH in October of 2018. She had a 25-year career as a clinician, mainly in Taos. She obtained a master’s degree from John F. Kennedy University, a certificate in substance abuse counseling, licensure as a marriage and family therapist, and board certification in Acudetox. Acudetox is particularly powerful in treating adolescents struggling with substance addiction but has also been shown to be effective with such conditions as PTSD, depression, anxiety, and panic disorder. Katia utilized nutrition, education, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), and spiritual awareness as part of a healing path with clients. Using a variety of touch, movement, and auditory techniques, Katia helped clients believe in themselves and adopt new healthy behaviors. She believed in treating the “whole person in their environmental context” and regularly involved parents and the whole family in treatment of youth. She was a bilingual native of Peru, Katia brought cultural sensitivity to her practice. We, your friends at Taos Behavioral Health thank you for the vibrant happiness you brought to everyone you encountered. We love and miss you dearly.
