New Mexico was known for its outlaws and cowboys, especially Billy the Kid. In life, you sometimes feel like you’re the cowboy, able to take on the most dastardly outlaw. Other times, you may feel like you’re the outlaw, going through any means necessary to keep going in life. 

A counselor can be the sheriff who brings order to your town and keeps the peace. Speak to a New Mexico based counselor today.
