Enhancement Center Therapists Are Ready to Meet You Where You’re At

Whether you’re looking to see a therapist in person or the convenience of your home via telehealth, Enhancement Center therapists are ready to help your start experiencing improved mental health.

While many patients still prefer in-person therapy, telehealth continues to be a useful option for a variety of reasons. Telehealth is ideal for people with busy schedules, people who are home-bound or immunocompromised, and those who live in rural communities and don’t have access to the therapy they need where they live. At Enhancement Center, we embrace how technology has made therapy more accessible to those who need it.

The Enhancement Center in Rio Rancho

The Enhancement Center began as a dream of founder, Jim Shotwell, an MSW (Masters of Social Work) with a desire to open a private practice and support other mental health professionals.
The Enhancement Center offers both psychotherapy and behavioral support services for people with intellectual disabilities. In fact, Jim began his career in mental health by providing support services to people with intellectual disabilities so it only made sense for him to include those offerings in his private practice as well. Since the beginning of The Enhancement Center, the group has attracted therapists and counselors who are passionate about mental health and helping individuals improve their quality of life.

"Two years ago when I began seeking help for my postpartum depression, I was falling apart. I didn’t know where to turn for help. That’s when I called the Enhancement Center. I immediately felt a little better. [My therapist] said, 'I know what you’re going through and I can help you.' No words could have sounded better. I was drowning, and somebody threw me a lifeline."



"[My therapist] has been absolutely amazing. She is professional and beyond helpful. Her personality is infectious! I feel very fortunate to have found her to help me."



"With over 25 therapists I had the choice to pick one that specialized in what I needed. The office staff was kind and very helpful. The therapists are very knowledgeable, calm and helped me with techniques to calm my stress and anxiety."

We Love Rio Rancho, NM

Just north of Albuquerque, Rio Rancho is another New Mexico community we love to serve. And there is so much to love about Rio Rancho. It’s close to Petroglyph National Monument, so anyone curious about the history of the region can see the intriguing markings left behind by cultures past. It’s also a great place for hiking enthusiasts, as is Cibola National Forest, which is also close to Rio Rancho. Rio Rancho locals and visitors both enjoy going to the Corrales Wine Loop, featuring three local wineries. And the Rio Rancho Events Center is a great place to go for concerts and entertainment of all kinds.
