Counseling

Our goal to implement a comprehensive school counseling program is an ongoing journey, which just keeps improving every year. Goal setting, decision-making, and appropriate social transitions are how we facilitate positive development with our emerging young adults. Our main role is to advocate and collaborate with all stakeholders involved to ensure the best interest of the students.

Some of the services provided by our team:

  • Conflict-mediation
  • Attendance Groups
  • Study Skills Groups
  • Health & Wellness Meetings
  • Registration and Scheduling
  • Presentations: Bullying, Tolerance/Awareness, GLBTQ, Drug/Alcohol Abuse, Depression and Suicide
  • College and Career Readiness Skill Building
  • High School Preparedness
  • College/Career Coaching Sessions for goal setting

Reach NM

The New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) introduces a new service, Reach NM, that provides text-based child abuse and neglect reporting, and direct engagement with CYFD workers.

Reach NM allows you to text with a CYFD expert (from a text-message enabled cell phone) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The Reach NM service can be utilized to assist you in finding Pull Together resources in your community, reach out for assistance with basic needs for yourself or others, report concerns of child abuse and neglect in your home, or report suspected child abuse or neglect that may be occurring in someone else's home or in the community.

Text 505-591-9444 to begin a conversation with a CYFD expert.
