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.

If we do move into working together, we'll talk about what these problems are doing to impact your life, and work to find the times you've been able ...

My life has been forever altered by engaging in therapy as a client and continues to be shaped by helping others engage in their own therapeutic process. I was one of those people who did not believe that life had anything to offer me and that I simply had to accept and suffer with the difficult hand I had been dealt…. How wrong I was! It was a lot of work and it took a long time, but a little bit at a time I started to overcome my past and was shocked to realize it was actually possible to feel genuinely happy, good, positive… not that every moment is bliss. I un...
