PeopleWorks – NM, a nonprofit organization, was founded by Cindy Anderson, MSW, LISW, to provide behavioral health and wellness services. Ms. Anderson has more than 25 years of experience in social services. Before starting PeopleWorks she served as Division Director for a local nonprofit agency, providing services to older adults. She was awarded the 2009 NASW-NM Social Worker of the Year for her work with the mentally ill geriatric population. Cindy also has extensive experience helping children, teens, and adults with their behavioral health needs.
In Cindy’s words: "I strongly believe people can change their lives for the better. By opening our hearts and minds, we open ourselves to healing. No encounter is without meaning, even if unpleasant. Getting to the gratitude for all of our experiences is one of the most important practices of mental wellness and spiritual wholeness. Psychotherapy is a journey, a parallel process to our real life. It is a healing journey, a partnering with another, and baring of our soul. I bring a warm acceptance, a sense of humor, years of experience and a touch of intuition to my work. I invite you to enter the journey with myself, with other professionals. No matter our age, it is never too late to engage in a healing process."
Our Nonprofit Vision: Persons in need will have access to high quality mental health care and services regardless of their economic status.
We provide a friendly environment and knowledgeable staff of Social Workers, Psychotherapists and Case Managers with extensive experience in helping our clients make the necessary changes to live more meaningful lives. We are passionate about what we do and pay special attention to respecting and valuing our clients and their families.
Our approach is to facilitate ongoing, discreet professional therapy sessions that are ethically and legally bound by confidentiality. We will meet in the privacy of our office or in limited cases, the comfort of your home. Our time together is focused on the issues that are most important to you. We listen to our clients with kindness and without judgment to create a safe environment where they can feel comfortable disclosing their innermost thoughts, feelings and fears.
Our ultimate goal for our client is to leave therapy feeling empowered and able to cope with future problems. To do this, the client must start to believe that they can make changes, both big and small. We will be there to support our clients every step of the way and help them find new paths to travel and new ways to manage life's challenges.
