The Family Workshop is a full service mental health counseling group, consisting of 40 Therapists and 3 Psychologists with offices in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. We work with all ages and all issues, and schedule appointments 8AM-8PM, 7 days a week. With 40 licensed Therapists and 3 Psychologists, we are able to match clients and their needs with the best Therapist for them to include expertise, strategy, age and training.

All Ages: We offer individual, group and family counseling for children and adults.

Treatment Planning: Treatment Planning is "organizing your life" to achieve normalization and balance; to discover the assets and conflicts; to get to where you want to go! How are your relationships with family, friends and partners? How are your connections to the community, money, employment, education/growth, recreation and spirituality? What do you do well and what would you like to do better?

Groups: Substance abuse, Domestic Violence, Teens, Parenting, Psycho-Social and Anger Management.

Interactive: Many of our Therapists utilize an interactive approach - this could include experiential education, coaching, journals, art and play therapy, sand tray, EMDR, reality therapy and self assessments, as well as the basic cognitive-behavioral methodology. We also employ curricula and workbooks for parenting, domestic violence, addictions and developmental assets - all at the choice and agreement of the client.
