Genaro Laynes is a bilingual(Spanish/English) therapist with the Therapist of Color Collaborative. More specifically, he works in the field of trauma and addiction and makes it a personal mission to help people overcome their barriers and become their best self.

He works with individuals that want to find stability and inner peace, but feel stuck and are unable to overcome their obstacles despite their efforts. He supports clients by exploring their history and addressing unprocessed trauma, which provides understanding, awareness and ultimately better control of their lives.

Genaro developed an interest in trauma when working with victims of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. During this time, He learned the importance of providing a safe and inviting environment that promotes healing. Years later, he makes a conscious effort to continue this in his practice.  

Genaro graduated from CU Denver with a bachelor's of science degree in Psychology in 2016 and received his Master's degree in Clinical Counseling in 2019 from Regis University. His experience includes crisis management, inpatient treatment, and DUI/substance use education. His post graduate training includes a certification in Integrative Gestalt therapy and training in EMDR. He is also a Co-owner of a private practice (Ayni Counseling). He's currently a Licensed professional counselor candidate(LPCC) and is pending a Licensed Addiction Counselor candidacy (ADDC).

Genaro believes that we all deserve to find fulfillment in our lives. If you are ready to explore what is getting in your way, He would be glad to take this journey with you.
