Our Philosophy


At Thrive Counseling Services Albuquerque Downtown and Rio Rancho,
we are inclusive and affirming.
We love this community and all of its inhabitants,
regardless of what country they are from, what or whom they do or do not worship,
who they love, the gender they were born or identify as,
or any other characteristic which might exclude.
At Thrive Counseling Services, our therapists know
that you are not your behaviors or your past.
We understand that you are a mother, a father,
a daughter, a son, a partner, a friend, and so many other things
before you are a label or diagnosis.

At Thrive Counseling Services, we care about our clients as people. 
We will work to support you in achieving your goals
 utilizing science-based and holistic therapies.
Whatever it is you're struggling with, we're here to help.

Client Testimonials

"So happy to have found this group. While searching for a therapist for my son, I called so many offices only to be turned down due to age, not accepting patients, or waiting time of over a month. But not with this office. We were able to see a therapist quickly, appointments have been flawless, billing has been no problem. The connection between my son and the therapist has been so solid that its helped
him tremendously with his recovery. I can not recommend them enough." - IM

"After having my son I began to struggle with anxiety and OCD. I knew I needed to seek help which is not easy for me to admit. I was at a very low place when I first came to Demian and he made me feel safe and reassured me that I was not alone in my struggles. He provided me with knowledge about what I was dealing with, and taught me skills to overcome and manage my struggles. He honestly changed my life 100% and I could not be more grateful for his guidance. Demian is amazing at what he does and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking help." -MS

"I know people go into therapy most often because they feel they need it. The life changing circumstance that brought me to Thrive was no exception. However, Thrive's client centered practice (it goes way beyond philosophy) has helped me to feel "deserving" rather than "needy". It's like a spa day for the soul. I take my sessions seriously and work hard in them but still, Thrive's part of things is all about me, my comfort, my pace, my time etc. No matter how much of the difficult stuff comes up in a session I always get to land gently before leaving."  - MD

 Are you feeling lonely, uncertain, hopeless, out of place,

worried, or just want someone to talk to?

We all feel these emotions at different times in our lives, but sometimes they overwhelm us when they are too strong or all happen at once. 

Sometimes they come from specific situations, like the loss of a loved one  or a drastic change in our lives. 

Sometimes we have no idea why we are feeling the way that we do. 

At Thrive Counseling Albuquerque, we  can support you in managing stress,  sadness or depression, anxiety, anger, grief, 

and other concerning or painful issues. 

When choosing a therapist in Albuquerque, consider that we have  years of experience and training working with adults, families

and  adolescents struggling with many issues.

We are here to lend an ear and give kind and gentle direction.
