Choices Counseling Services seeks only the highest qualified, most dedicated mental health professionals. Each counselor has completed at least a Master's degree in counseling, marriage and family therapy, or social work. Each is licensed by the State of New Mexico to provide care independent of supervision. We prefer therapists who have sufficient life experience to add “uncommon sense” to the clinical setting.
