Las Vegas Counseling & Therapy

For Individuals, Families, Couples & Teens

Get Started

Welcome, and congratulations on taking this first step towards healing and self-discovery. Deciding to start counseling can be an intimidating process, but it doesn’t need to be. Choosing therapy simply means that you are ready to invest in yourself to find clarity, peace and empowerment.  It certainly doesn’t mean that you are broken or incapable of figuring things out on your own.

Healing is a journey. It’s one that may feel overwhelming and daunting and you don’t really want to go at it alone. And you’re here because you realize you don’t have to. Whether you just need some simple troubleshooting and tools or there’s something bigger you’re ready to tackle, therapy can provide comfort, solace and healing. Take a deep breath. You’ve come to the right place in your search for therapy in Las Vegas!

“Counseling has given me such great insight. The advice, guidance and direction that I’ve gotten will benefit me and my family! I have gained so much knowledge on how to become a better spouse and a better version of myself.”

Therapy is awesome. It’s so empowering! You get to come in, lay it all out on the table, process it, and together, we’ll figure out your game plan.

We believe that self-awareness is the key to unlocking emotional and behavioral change. So we’ll figure out what’s going on, why, and how to change it. It’s a process that can be incredibly rewarding and, at times, surprisingly fun. We’ll shed some tears and have some laughs and along the way, and when you leave you’ll feel stronger and more at peace.

During my three plus years working with Christine, I have always felt like she really cares about me and about the outcomes in my life. She will use any applicable tool or resource to help me become my best self. Above and beyond that, she’s always there for me, does not lose faith even if I do, and encourages me every step of the way.

Hi, I’m Christine Lawler.

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I’ve been practicing therapy for almost 13 years. I have an amazing husband who I’ve been married to for 12 years, and we’ve got four darling little girls.

I’m a big believer that therapist fit is really important. Too many people give up on counseling in general because they had a poor fit with a therapist and decided counseling didn’t work. Counseling DOES work, but the therapist/client match-up is important. You want to work with someone whose personality you can jive with, and you need to believe that your therapist can actually help you. So, I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself and what sets me apart, and you can decide if I sound like the right fit for you:

I graduated from Brigham Young University, the #1 Marriage and Family Therapy program in the country. I’m not saying this to brag, only to confidently report that my education was top notch. We were constantly taught how important it is to be a fantastic therapist, because unfortunately, unskilled therapists can do more harm than good and often clients have no way of discerning. I was also taught that having a good foundational background is important, but what I do after graduation to hone my skills is what will set me apart. Because of this, I have thrown myself into reading and taking continuing education courses from the leaders in the field. I’m a critical consumer of information and I make sure that everything I do is grounded in theory.

Hi, I’m Leslie Frederick.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have long had a passion for helping and serving others.

I began my career as a social worker for a local hospice.  I found great purpose in helping families navigate the unpredictable twists and turns that undoubtedly come along with the end of life for their loved ones.  After many years in hospice, I transitioned to a medical social work position in a hospital, which then led me to a Clinical Social Work Intern position in an inpatient psych hospital.  During this time, I enjoyed working with a range of individuals and families.  The vast array of cases I encountered in the hospital allowed me to gain the experience and skills needed to serve a multitude of clients.  I enjoy working with clients of all ages and believe in meeting a client where they are at in order to tailor treatment to meet their individualized needs and work towards their specific goals.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Northern Arizona University and a Masters in Social Work from UNLV. I am originally from Northwest Indiana and have lived in Las Vegas for over ten years with my husband and our three children. We love living out west and enjoy spending time traveling and exploring our neighboring states.
