Southwest Cares is comprised of a group of extremely talented and dedicated independently-licensed behavioral health clinicians. Read more about our clinicians below.
Patricia DuBois, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Patricia DuBois is a licensed clinical social worker and former registered nurse based in Corrales, NM. She worked as a staff nurse at George Washington Hospital in Washington, D.C. for many years before relocating to New Mexico. She continued to work as a staff nurse at Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque, NM, adding on program development duties to that role. DuBois moved to Seattle, WA to work on her Master’s degree of Social Work, which she earned from the University of Washington – Seattle in 1992. After relocating back to New Mexico, DuBois began outpatient therapy work for adolescents and adults. In 1997, she opened a private practice, where she uses cognitive/behavioral, insight, EMDR, and equine-assisted therapy, among other modalities, when working with adolescents and adults.
While maintaining a successful private practice, DuBois continued to work on developing and implementing
programs to help in-need populations in Albuquerque. She coordinated and supervised a grant-funded program working with drug-addicted mothers and their babies through UNM Selectt. She served as Clinical Director for Catholic Charities for four years before taking on a similar role at A New Day Youth and Family Services. There, she developed and implemented programs to provide clinical services to children at an adolescent shelter and at numerous schools in the Albuquerque area.
DuBois brings both clinical and program-development experience to Southwest Cares, where she serves a dual role as clinician and Clinical Liaison. In the latter role, DuBois serves both as a support to Southwest Cares clinicians and as a resource to our many partnering facilities in Albuquerque and the surrounding area.
