Business Spotlight: Doyle brings counseling practice to Los Alamos

-A A +A
By Gina Schultz

Karen Doyle has devoted her life to helping people seek the life that is ideal for them.
A licensed independent social worker for more than 20 years, Doyle and Clinical Psychologist Dr. Howard Ottenheimer, Ph.D. have teamed up to help people with emotional issues.
Splitting her time between Santa Fe and Los Alamos, Doyle opened up a practice in July at 110 East Gate Road. Doyle and Ottenheimer specialize in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Ottenheimer practices mostly in Santa Fe.
Doyle has seven years of experience with DBT, which is designed to help people change patterns of behavior that are not effective, such as self-harm, suicidal thinking, eating disorders, depression and substance abuse. “It is a way to looking at both sides of a situation, role reversing and finding a middle ground to deal and not make things worse,” Doyle said.
The treatment is not psychotherapy, but rather using life skills and the modules to modify unhealthy behaviors.
The evidence-based therapy uses four modules as a guide for successful recovery.
• Mindfulness: The capacity to pay attention and live in the moment, experiencing emotion and all senses with a conscious perspective.
“The core component is mindfulness — the program demands to take a look at life,” Doyle said.
