Desert Wise is a distinguished mental health clinic in Albuquerque serving individuals in high stakes occupations. To date, we have primarily served military-connected individuals, federal law enforcement, medical professionals, executives, and aviators. Dr. Joye Henrie, Desert Wise’s founder, is committed to high quality mental health care delivered in a discreet, professional clinic setting.

Desert Wise is foremost committed to providing dignified, effectivediscreet mental health treatment.

  • Dignified treatment: Dr. Henrie has created a clinic environment that provides the same professionalism you would expect from your primary care doctor, attorney, or accountant. We have been faithful to this model, in part, by ensuring a professional atmosphere, developing comprehensive consent and policy forms, and maintaining appropriate boundaries between therapists and patients. 
  • Effective treatment: Dr. Henrie is well-versed in both the scientific research underpinning mental health treatment and the art of applied clinical treatment. She expertly employs this knowledge in a way that is relevant and useful to each individual and is consistently mindful of what works for you – not what works in a lab or for anyone else. Dr. Henrie employs a therapeutic approach that requires hard work from patients, prioritizes accountability, and challenges patients’ unhelpful beliefs and behaviors. 
  • Discreet treatment: Dr. Henrie respects confidentiality concerns and has developed an entire business model around them, so that you are afforded the opportunity to develop comfort at your own pace. Our clinic is self-contained, which allows patients to discreetly enter a private lobby, and Dr. Henrie has attended to even the most minor details that ensure our patients’ privacy and comfort. 

As a veteran-owned company, Desert Wise has also created a safe, secure environment that allows our patients to be at ease during their visits.
