I believe that each human has purpose. Life experiences can blur that belief in each of us. My goal is to see that all who come through my doors be reminded of their purpose and be convinced that they can be healthy. My promise is that you will be treated with respect, great care, and be challenged to be the best version of yourself. 

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Workforce Post-Secondary Math and Business Education from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, a Master of Arts in Human Services with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy from Liberty University, a Master of Arts in Clinical Professional Counseling (CPC), and a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Lincoln Christian University.

 

I am EMDR level 2 trained therapist, am a certified licensed instructor in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Prepare/Enrich Couple Assessment, and am a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family (AAMFT), and the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC).

Keith Stark, LMFT intern (NV #MI0925)

 

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix and a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Lincoln Christian University. I have had many years of experience in education, the juvenile justice system, and the non-profit sector. I see individuals, couples, and families and specialize in those with issues relating to anger management and domestic violence. I believe that if you are ever going to plant seeds of change, you have to plant seeds in the family system. Individual change must be desired!

Gabrielle Burton, MA MFT, Marriage & Family #3099

I have been a therapist for a little over 6 years now. I fell in love with the field of mental health after experiencing my own battle with anxiety and depression in college. My doctor tried to medicate the symptoms away. My pastor tried to pray them away and the nutritionist tried to diet the symptoms away. It was then that I learned the interconnectedness of the mind, body and spirit. I couldn't address one without addressing the others. Every experience we have is at a cellular level. Pain and trauma get stored inside our bodies manifesting as anxiety, depression, headaches, stomach issues, chronic health conditions, and autoimmune diseases. Until we allow ourselves to process it, our bodies will do the talking for us.
I am very passionate about working with young adults, couples and families. I am a very artsy person and believe that lack of self-expression leads to depression. I often incorporate experiential techniques in my therapeutic approach involving creativity and mind body connections.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies with a minor in Leadership from the Bethel University and a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Lincoln Christian University. I am a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family (AAMFT) and the Nevada Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (NAMFT). I am level 1 EMDR trained.
