Chrissy lawler therapist in las vegas

Hi, I’m Christine Lawler.

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and I’ve been practicing therapy for almost 15 years. I have an amazing husband who I’ve been married to for 14 years, and we’ve got four darling little girls.
 
I love this work! Change and healing are possible, and it’s so rewarding to be in this process with you. Wherever you are feeling stuck, we can target it and find breakthroughs to make your life, your relationships, and your mental health meaningfully better. You deserve to be thriving.
 
I graduated from the #1 Marriage and Family Therapy program in the country. I can confidently report that my education was top notch and I am committed to providing the best possible mental health treatment available. Unfortunately, unskilled and under-educated therapists can do more harm than good and often clients have no way of discerning. Because of this, I have thrown myself into reading and taking continuing education courses from the leaders in the field. You’re in good hands– let’s dive in!
Leslie frederick therapist in las vegas | The Peaceful Mind Counseling Center

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.

aryn miller cpc | The Peaceful Mind Counseling Center

Hi, I’m Aryn Miller.

I am a Certified Professional Counselor (CPC) licensed to practice in Ohio and Nevada.

I specialize in working with clients throughout pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond. The journey into motherhood is one of the most significant biological and psychological transitions that humans face. Yet, society tells us it should be the most exciting and wonderful time of our lives. It’s okay if this is not your experience. I’m here to help you navigate this new normal and find yourself again. I have specialized training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Stetson University and a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Dayton.

I offer telehealth sessions in both Nevada and Ohio. You already have enough on your plate – no need to worry about securing childcare and all the logistics of in-office sessions. Grab a coffee and a comfy spot, and let’s get started!

kimberly boschee headshot | The Peaceful Mind Counseling Center

Hi, I’m Kim Boschee.

I’ve been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2005. Originally from the Midwest, I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology/English Literature at Illinois Wesleyan University and then finished my graduate studies in Counseling Psychology at Indiana University. I moved to Las Vegas in 2002 to complete my graduate internship, and liked it here so much, I decided to stay!

Whether you are feeling anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed, therapy is a transformative way to safely sort through these emotions. Together, we will create an action plan to promote a sense of empowerment in your life, generating improved well-being as well as sustainable changes. If doing less isn’t an option, then let’s do better.

I love working with couples, families, individuals, and adolescents from the lenses of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Functional Family Therapy (FFT), and the Gottman Method. My career began in the government sector and has included both agency and nonprofit arenas. Currently, I work with clients in a variety of stressful, demanding career fields including medicine/healthcare, business leadership, academia, and financial planning.

Outside of the office, you’ll find me in the mountains or on the golf course; I’ve been a member of Red Rock Search and Rescue since 2020 and am the (very proud!) mom to a competitive junior golfer. I believe in a holistic approach to life and work to weave this mindset in all areas of my life.

Hi, I’m Cassandra Bohnett.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been in the field of mental health since 2007. Over the years, I have had the privilege of serving people and families from all ages in a variety of roles and settings. My mission to is create a safe and nonjudgmental therapeutic space where clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

I received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Colorado and a Master of Social Work from the University of Southern California. I am a certified EMDR therapist with specialized training in attachment-based therapy, ego state therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy. I specialize in treating trauma, addictions, anxiety, depression, and relational issues through an attachment-focused lens. Whether you’re struggling with unresolved childhood trauma, navigating challenging relationships, or seeking to cultivate greater self-awareness and resilience, I am here to support you every step of the way.

When I’m not in the therapy room, I enjoy hiking and exploring the outdoors with my two dogs. I believe in the importance of self-care and balance, and I strive to incorporate these values into my personal and professional life.

I have worked with Christine for years. She’s smart, down to earth, and full of empathy. She is a safe place and a voice of reason. She’s the person I talk to during the highest highs and the lowest lows. She always provides non-judgmental insight and listens with understanding. I can trust her with anything.

AREAS OF FOCUS

Strengthening Marriages & Couples

I fundamentally believe that marriage should be fun. Think back to when you were first dating, when falling in love was so natural. You probably enjoyed each other. I imagine you had fun, you talked, you dreamed, you laughed, you dated and had adventures and new experiences together.

But then life happened. You grew up. You had kids, maybe some more schooling, jobs, bills and stress. Fun and flirtation was probably replaced by responsibility and survival. If you’ve disconnected over the years or hurt feelings and resentments are getting in the way of you really enjoying your relationship, I can help.

Sex Therapy

Physical intimacy is one of the most vulnerable and problematic areas of relationships and we don’t talk about it nearly enough. So many emotional and relational dynamics are manifest through physical intimacy, like: meeting each other’s needs, giving vs taking, and feeling loved, valued and appreciated.

Add to that the complexity of hormones, having kids and stressful jobs, and diminished sex drive in one or both spouses and you’ve got breeding ground for a lot of feelings of rejection and disconnection. Read more about sex therapy by clicking below.

Adolescent Therapy

Being a teenage girl is really, really hard. The truth is, as wonderful as a parent as I’m sure you are, there are simply things your daughter is going through that she’s not talking to you about. I get to be this adult in her life that she can talk to openly, where she won’t be judged or worry about getting in trouble, but I’m still invested in her long-term well-being.

I’m the perfect blend of role model and friend. I’m older and wiser but I’m still cool (hopefully!!) and in the know with what’s probably going on in her world. I firmly believe that it’s one of the best investments you’ll make for them.

Faith Crisis

Experiencing doubts or questions about faith can be really overwhelming, daunting and lonely. Similarly, if you have a loved one in a faith crisis it may also feel overwhelming, scary and lonely. 

Same Gender Attraction: LDS or not, coming to terms with LGBT issues can be an emotional roller coaster. You’ve probably spent most of your life up until this point trying to dismiss those feelings or “pray away the gay.” It hasn’t worked and now you’re ready to figure out what your sexuality means and how to reconcile your testimony.

Sleep Training

Newsflash! Sleep is critical to our emotional and physical well-being. We all know this, yet somehow, we all walk around tired and we just accept exhaustion as part of adulthood. That doesn’t need to be the case, getting quality sleep again is possible.

If you have chronic insomnia, I can help! I’m specially trained in a method called CBT-I that’s proven to be the most effective behavioral treatment for insomnia out there. It’s a super cool process that retrains your brain to sleep well again

Self Discovery/Empowerment

Whether it’s depression, anxiety or just some things about yourself or your past you want to figure out and overcome, we’ll work together on your self-empowerment and overcoming these negative feelings, I love this type of work because it truly helps you reconnect with yourself again!

We’ll identify that pesky negative voice in your head and I’ll teach you some tools to shut him/her up and help you regain your self-confidence and self-love. Let’s find that inner peace you’re seeking.
