Christian & LDS Faith Crisis Counseling in Las Vegas & Summerlin

Finding strength again

Get Started

For most people with a foundation of faith, it’s something you’ve drawn great strength from in the past, and have possibly even built your life around. So when you start to question things that you’ve always believed it can feel really overwhelming.

For many people, when they start to question things that used to be basic or fundamental, it can feel like everything is coming crashing down, like “now what?!” “If I don’t believe XYZ (or I don’t know if I believe XYZ) then what does that mean about ABC?” I’ve you’re intently examining it now, I imagine you’ve had other moments where you tried not to think about it because just keeping up with the norm is actually way easier. It feels wrong or scary at first to question.

Let your faith show

Overcoming a Faith Crisis, including LDS

I am LDS (Mormon), so a lot of the clients I work with in faith crisis are also LDS. But I’ve found that regardless of religion, most people struggling with their faith have similar battles. It’s hard to articulate or even share your doubts because of defensiveness or judgement from others. Unfortunately, a lot of times people assume that if your faith isn’t as bright as it once was, it must be the result of some sin or slacking. Spouses, family and friends might shut down conversations or invalidate concerns because it’s scary for them.

So why would you talk to a therapist about your faith questions and not your bishop? Well, first of all, your bishop could still be a great person to talk to if you want. But my role as a therapist is to help you navigate all this stuff, find your own clarity and your own peace and figure out what it all means for you. Your level of activity or acceptance of church doctrines doesn’t personally affect me so I’m not trying to convince you to stay or to believe. I don’t have an agenda, so you get the advantage of an open, listening, trained ear and the background of someone who understands church culture and doctrines.

You have more faith than you think you do

LGBTQ Counseling in Las Vegas

Gosh, it is HARD to be a member of this church and feel same-gender attraction or have gender identity questions. Wherever you are in your journey of acknowledgement and acceptance, I would love to walk this path with you.

First, recognizing or admitting to yourself that you might be gay can bring on an identity crisis of its own. Many people experience despair, depression, and self-loathing, wishing it would just go away. Then later, when you realize it’s not going anywhere, you get to decide what to do about it. Either way, the battle ahead is tough.

On one hand, you can follow what you’ve been taught and stay true to church doctrines, refraining from acting on sexual impulses and urges. This can feel lonely and difficult, especially if you can’t see yourself ever being happy with an opposite-sex partner. It feels like all the things you’ve been taught to want your whole life aren’t available to you (getting married, having a family, etc). On the other hand, if you choose to act on your urges and embrace an LGBT lifestyle, you may feel like you don’t have a place in a church that you’ve loved. It might feel like you’re disappointing family, friends or God. I’ll help you in this pivotal part of your life

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.

Hi, I’m Christopher Adams.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with nearly 30 years of experience serving children, adolescents, and adults confronting various mental/behavioral health concerns, including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, stress management, adjustment, and relationship challenges.
I hold graduate degrees in Clinical Psychology and Social Work and have certification as a brain injury specialist (CBIS) and an ordainment as a Christian Minister. I can meet your needs, whether clinical or spiritual. I am an adept clinician with great success giving special attention to fostering health and wellness through therapeutic relationships, exploration, and promoting personal responsibility.
Whether you are an individual or a couple needing psychological and social intervention or Christian counseling, I’m here to support you and work with you to find the peace and stability you seek.
kim boschee licensed marriage and family therapist in las vegas nevada | 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.

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.
