“My purpose since I was very young and I was really encouraged to follow this, is that it is my destiny; it is my purpose. It is my path to honor the medicine and share it with whoever comes to me asking for help.” Laura Alonzo de Franklin
Laura Alonzo de Franklin, LMSW,a ‘Consejera Espiritual Curandera’ (Spiritual Counselor Healer). Her path began at an early age while being raised by her mother and maternal grandmother between two border towns, San Benito, Texas and Tampico, Mexico. Laura grew up respecting and honoring the sacred herbs, prayers, and rituals of her Mexhika/Huesteca (Aztec), Lipan Apache, Mestiza, and Indigenous ancestors. With over 35 years’ experience, she remains deeply rooted in her ancestral healing traditions and has learned many healing methods including social work, curanderismo, shamanic arts, Mayan womb care, temazcal (sacred lodge pourer), ceremonial dancer, herbology, auricular detoxification, EFT, reiki, laugh therapy yet remains flexible in her approach towards all of the healing arts.
Through La Plazita Institute, a non-profit grassroots agency in Albuquerque, New Mexico, she works as a board member, community advocate and health promotora providing healing to individuals, families and groups through Traditional Healing using Clinical Social Work Methods and Evidence Based Practices with Indigenous Ceremonies, Platicas (Heart to Heart Talks) Temazcales (sweat lodges), Prayer, Meditation Practices, Herbal Consultations, Soul Retrievals, PTSD Ceremonies, Transition/Crossover Ceremonies, Blessings (land and home) and Energy Work as an Empath and Intuitive Healer through personalized healing methods for the immigrant community, incarcerated Native American youth in Federal, State and local facilities, homeless veterans, young mothers, hospice patients and those in addiction recovery.
Laura’s work has focused on “Susto” (PTSD) in the returning OEF/OIF Veterans as they transition back to their homes and families but works with all Veterans from all conflicts. She left her position as a Psychosocial Rehabilitation Social Worker with the Veteran’s Administration Health Care system in Albuquerque to pursue a PhD in Public Health and Community Education through a full Veteran Fellowship. She is the founder of Kalpulli Teocalli Ollin (Community Sacred House of Energy) a place for people to learn about traditional healing and being of service to their communities.
