Christin Barden


About Me

I have been a licensed social worker since July 2017, but I have been helping New Mexico military families, Veterans, aging population and the homeless for over 15 years. As a military veteran, I understand the struggles with adapting to civilian life, and have experience working with substance abuse, trauma, traumatic brain injury, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, career-related issues and coping with stress. I love working with adults in all stages of life and I have experience in couples and family therapy. I strive to create a safe, comfortable environment, without judgement. I practice a person-centered, solution focused, strengths based modality. My goal is to help you identify what areas are not working in your life right now and help you develop the tools you need to empower you cope with all of life's stress and challenges.

Christin Barden has been the best therapist to me. She has guided me to see myself better and I’m so thankful. From deep depression, anxiety, to being diagnosed with a brain aneurysm, Christin has helped me get through it. I feel better than I ever have. I highly recommend her.
Thank you again Christin.

Many folks need a bit of help now and then. I've recommended Christin to several friends. Just having someone to guide me and acknowledge my feelings is imperative. The initial price makes it really tempting.

One of a kind and the best I have ever had to help. She is conscious, insightful and honest. All of the things you can ask for in a person who is there to help you through the difficult times. 11/10.

Cristin Barden is clearly very experienced and competent. I felt at ease with her right away and was able to start sharing some of my concerns and working on strategies on day 1. I'm so glad that I found Cristin on Betterhelp.
