Counseling remains essential while COVID-19 lingers


Isolation and social distancing have proven to be great tools for flattening the curve of COVID-19, but isolation and lack of physical touch can lead to depression and other mental-health issues.
Counseling Las Cruces, LLC, owner Andrea Dresser said her firm is adapting while still offering services.
“We help people with concerns such as depression, anxiety, coping with the current challenges, trauma and relationship issues,” Dresser said, adding that “most insurances are accepted, and we are open for business and accepting new clients.”
Dresser said she and Luisa Bruner manage a staff of 21, whose collective core function is “providing behavioral-health services,” which they’ve been doing since 2012 from their offices at 133 Wyatt Dr., Suite 3.
“Since Covid hit and the stay-at-home orders were implemented, we’ve been seeing clients on-line, from home for the most part,” Dresser said. “Once we’re able to, we will see clients in the office on a staggered schedule, have clients wait in their cars and text them when it’s time to come in to minimize contact. We also will have masks in the office available.
