Message From Our President

CRISTINA APODACA, MA

On behalf of the New Mexico Counseling Association -Advocates for Social Justice Division, I would like to welcome you to our web page, and look forward to hearing from you soon. As a division, we seek to address the issues that call forth members of the counseling profession to support their clients outside the standard counseling professional’s responsibilities.

The Advocates for Social Justice Division is a haven to bring up issues that can be difficult to discuss, such as race, gender identification and socio-economic status. There is discussion, resource dissemination, and training available to address these issues.

Our division is looking for more members to get involved. If you are interested, or want more information, please contact me at capodaca57@hotmail.com, or 505-690-7592, in Santa Fe.
