David Wright looks to help those in need with his business, Pecos Valley Counseling.

How long have you lived in Socorro? 

It has now been around six years. 

What do you do in your business?  

We do counseling, mental health therapy, parenting classes, classes for PTSD. We work a lot with homeless people; we try and get them the resources that they need. We have an office in Belen, and we are trying to get this one running. 

What made you pick Socorro as the next city for your business?  

Well, aside from me living here, there is a big drug problem here and a lot of people need help. So, we are trying to reach out to those that need the help.  

What are some of your hobbies? 

Hobbies? Well, I guess I’ll just take a vacation if I ever have the time to take one, but I also really enjoy music. I play guitar. I’m not a professional or anything, but I’ve written a few songs and played for the band at church.  

What kind of music do you write? 

Mostly gospel. I have done some country songs, but I’ve mostly stuck to gospel.  

Who’s your favorite music artist? 

I don’t have any particular favorites. If I hear something and I like it, then I’ll just follow that. Sometimes I’ll try and play it.  

Are you a movie guy? Or book guy? 

I used to read a lot when I was younger, but now that I am older, my eyesight is getting tired and I need the font to be quite big to read comfortably.

What’s your favorite book?  

The Bible. 

Who’s your favorite author?  

I would probably have to go with Charles Dickens. I remember that his books would be tough to read because of the style of writing as well as the words he used, but I enjoyed that part. Every time I didn’t understand something, I would grab a dictionary to see what it meant.  

If you could have dinner with anybody (dead or alive) who would it be?  

Well, I would probably pick Jesus Christ, but I don’t know if that would be fair. I would probably just pick my wife and kids.
