Momentum Coaching and Counseling
Fay Kimbrell, LMSW, Noelle Deltufo, LCSW, Maxine Kimbrell, LCSW, and Molly Pulda, Ph.D., LMSW. Momentum Counseling and Coaching was founded in 2021 by a team of social workers each with a special skill set. The goal of momentum is to provide collaborative and creative therapy sessions for people who need mental health support. Talk therapy alone can be limiting, we strive to collaborate with various practitioners when we can.
Noelle Deltufo, LCSW, has worked in social services since 2009 predominantly with system involved people. She is L,G,B,T,Q, aligned and especially serious about working with adolescents struggling with identity-related issues. Incorporating other modalities when appropriate Noelle specializes in trauma-informed and Brief Solution Focused Therapy.
Molly Pulda, Ph.D., LMSW, focuses on helping individuals navigate life changes, including the tricky transitions of early adulthood, turning points in personal and professional relationships, and lifelong fluctuations in mood and motivation. Her 12 years of teaching college-level literature and writing, and her doctoral research on family secrets, inform her practice of helping individuals make meaning out of the stories they are already living. Molly graduated from Columbia University (B.A.), the CUNY Graduate Center (Ph.D., English), and Tulane University (MSW). She moved from New York City to New Orleans in 2016 with her husband and daughter.
Maxine Kimbrell, LCSW, has been a social worker for over 30 years. Her experience brings wisdom and insight to the practice. While she sees a variety of age groups, Mxine focuses her work on adults and elders (65+). Her clinical background includes crisis intervention, trauma-informed counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused brief therapy.
Fay Kimbrell, LMSW, is a Licensed Master Social Worker working at the intersection of personal empowerment and large-scale change. She is trained in Narrative Therapy with an interest in somatics to help individuals understand and heal their past. At her Momentum Counseling and Coaching practice in Spyre, Fay works individually with men and women to work through their past, embody their present, and envision the future they desire. Her mission is to help individuals connect to their bodies, their lives, and their relationships.
Together with her husband, Dr. Jeffrey Rouse of The Slow Wave Institute of New Orleans, Fay’s work incorporates Slow Wave technology into her practice. Dr. Rouse’s expertise is harnessing the power of Slow Wave technology as part of The Slow Wave Institute of New Orleans.
Fay and Jeff both grew up in New Orleans and appreciate the deep cultural and familial roots of the city. The couple lives with their youngest daughter, dog, and cat, and they have a son and older daughter who are both off to college. The Tree of Life in Audubon Park is a favorite local place to recharge and reconnect for the family.
Below are a few modalities Fay uses within her practice:
- NARRATIVE THERAPY:
Practitioners of narrative therapy know that the stories we tell ourselves matter and that those stories can be adjusted to better align the individual with the person they want to be. Narrative therapy views individuals as separate from their problems, allowing a client to address issues in a more productive way.
- SOMATIC FOCUSED TREATMENT
A form of therapy that helps the patient connect their mind and body. Often our traumas live in our bodies as well as our minds. Somatics helps clients tune into their bodies to help their minds make decisions, process pain, and alleviate stress.
- SLOW WAVE SYSTEM
A novel somatic technology offered in partnership with Cofactor Systems in Santa Barbara, California. The Slow Wave System device uses complex vibrational patterns and breathwork to deliver deep stress relief, autonomic nervous system rebalancing, and profound relaxation.
