about







Dear friends of Child Counseling Center and Play Therapy Institute of NM,
Thank you for your support of this new nonprofit that is benefitting the children and parents in our community. 
Due to COVID-19, we have stopped seeing our child clients and caregivers at our office. Our experienced child therapists have begun holding sessions with the children and providing support to their caregivers through Confidential Telehealth.
The reasons that brought children and their families to seek out our services have not gone away and may escalate with the increased stress put on children and families. There is an anticipated increase in families needing our support in the coming months. It is our goal to meet this demand. 
As a new nonprofit, we need your continued support. 
Your donations will help us to provide services during this challenging time. 
With gratitude from all of us. 
Please check out our GoFund Me and Look forward to our events when the Shelter in Place has been lifted. 
Wishing you all Safety and Wellness.
