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.

My belief is that everyone has the capacity to change, confront challenges and grow each day. Therapy is a tool that can help people find their capacity to change.

I utilize a personalized approach combining interventions from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, motivational interviewing and choice theory tailored to meet your individual needs. I am passi...

Hello my name is Gwen. I'm a licensed clinical social worker and I have worked in the behavioral health and substance abuse field for over 20 years.

There are definitely things that we can do in service of our own healing and growth but I tend to believe that there aren’t really answers or solutions to things, nor does there need to be, but instead ways of looking at them and holding them so that we can be in better relationship with them. I believe we can offer ourselves a perspective that can turn situations, circumstances, feelings, relationships with others and the relationship with ourselves into dance partners, instead of opponents that need to be defeated, not allowed or kept down. We can invite all o...
