Southwestern College

Serving Our Community


group2The Southwestern Counseling Center, established in 1986, provides affordable counseling to the community from a holistic mental health-care perspective. In a unique program for a New Mexico college, the Counseling Center offers students practical experience in general counseling, art therapy, sandplay, grief and loss, interpersonal neurobiology, ecopsychology and substance abuse and addictions work. Practicum students and interns utilize a holistic psychology framework which includes psychotherapeutic approaches that address the emotional, mental, multicultural and spiritual aspects of each client. Consistent with our philosophical approach, the services offered at the Southwestern Counseling Center are based on a transformational view of human development.


Who We Serve: We serve residents of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico. Those who are assisted are 60% female and 40% male; 42% are minorities and over 70% of the clients are low-income. The students help adults, children, couples, families and groups to make positive life changes.
