Clinical Social Worker
Eric Mares came to TBH in August of 2018 after a variety of clinical and administrative positions in northern New Mexico, most recently as the Children Youth and Families Departmental clinical supervisor for behavioral health in the ten northern counties.
With a master’s in social work from Highlands University, he has also studied social work, government/non-profit management, business, and psychology from New Mexico State and the University of New Mexico.
He is licensed to work with clients with substance abuse challenges. His clinical concentrations also include grief and loss counseling, co-occurring diagnoses, family discord, and trauma recovery. He is comfortable with both individual and group counseling.
Eric works with both adults and youth/children but admits to a special dedication to the welfare of children. Perhaps this is an expression of his deep commitment to family — he and his wife have four beautiful children, and he enjoys his role as an assistant coach to the Taos High School Basketball team. He is a fifth generation Taoseño.
