Southwestern College has been bringing the world extraordinary therapists since 1979. Naturally, therapists-in-training need a place to train!

Since 1986, SWC students have  provided affordable counseling to the community from a holistic mental health-care perspective. In a unique program for a New Mexico college, Tierra Nueva Counseling Center offers students practical experience in general counseling, art therapy, sand play therapy, trauma, grief & renewalapplied interpersonal neurobiology, ecotherapy, children’s mental health, infant mental health, human sexuality, and addictions, abuse and recovery.

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 Tierra Nueva Counseling Center are based on a transformational view of human development.

In 2016, Southwestern College was proud to open the next iteration of our counseling center – Tierra Nueva Counseling Center (TNCC).  Tierra Nueva was designed and built from the ground up with counselors, art therapists, and northern New Mexico clients in mind. With twelve counseling rooms and two classrooms, we are now able to provide dedicated space for sand play therapy, family counseling, art therapy, and group therapy, in addition to traditional counseling rooms. 

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. Our students help adults, children, couples, families and groups to make positive life changes.

What Brings People to Therapy? Individuals, couples and families often seek counseling or art therapy services to work through conflicts in their lives. Some of these issues may include:

  • Depression
  • Personal Growth
  • Work-related conflicts
    Addictions
  • Grief and Loss
  • Abuse
  • Trauma
  • Relationship Concerns
  • Anxiety
