Christin Barden


About Me

I have been a licensed social worker since July 2017, but I have been helping New Mexico military families, Veterans, aging population and the homeless for over 15 years. As a military veteran, I understand the struggles with adapting to civilian life, and have experience working with substance abuse, trauma, traumatic brain injury, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, career-related issues and coping with stress. I love working with adults in all stages of life and I have experience in couples and family therapy. I strive to create a safe, comfortable environment, without judgement. I practice a person-centered, solution focused, strengths and respect based modality. My goal is to help you identify what areas are not working in your relationship right now and help you develop the tools you need to improve communication skills, build empathy & respect, learn effective problem-solving & conflict resolution skills. I would love the opportunity to help you explore how to grow your relationship.
