Since 1994

Mark Ferriegel, LPCC and Charlotte Knauber, LPCC founded The Community Lighthouse in 1994. The company started out with a focus on experiential play therapy and to provide healing to traumatized children in our community.  Since then, we have grown in both size and scope; offering wrap around services to take care of the entire family. The dream has been to offer our patients a variety of services to individualize our patient’s treatment, give them the tools needed to live a successful life, and help them find their best selves.

       Mental health is a vital part of healthy living.  Our services help children, adults, and families to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives.  We offer a combination of services to meet your needs in a variety of treatment methods so that you can pursue the right approach for you.  Our services are designed to complement each other and improve the chance of positive outcomes so that you can get back to living a healthy life.


       Looking to the future, it is our goal to leave a lasting legacy of healing not just in our community, but the world. As we continue to grow and evolve as a company, it is our vision to expand services and offer the best possible treatment to the families of New Mexico.  Our team works tirelessly to ensure that our services are of the highest quality, and to provide jobs where people are empowered to be a part of something bigger than themselves.
