Ms. Emily Berson is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Nevada.

Ms. Berson earned her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA.

Her experience over the span of her career has included teaching youth about the dangers of tobacco use, advising undergraduate and graduate students about their academic and professional pursuits, counseling both victims and perpetrators of domestic violence, and now offering psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families.

In this process, you and Emily will work together to navigate the ins and outs of communication, learn to build and rebuild trust, identify tools for managing difficult emotions and thinking patterns, and just figure out who you are. Her clients have experienced a wide range of concerns such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and attention difficulties. She has also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

Emily’s counseling style is designed to offer a safe and open space for you to be the most authentic version of yourself. She believes in meeting everyone exactly where they are and holding a nonjudgmental space. Her approach includes elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, trauma-informed care, internal family systems, and mindfulness.

Your work together will be tailored to your specific goals, and you and Emily will co-create the path you take toward your healing.

Reaching out for help is one of the hardest things a person can do. She truly honors the strength and courage you used to take that step, and looks forward to helping you navigate the road toward the best you that you can possibly be!

Emily’s happiness comes from a good balance of family time, friend time, and me time. She loves hanging out with her husband, their fabulous daughter, and their two kitties. They watch a lot of movies together as a family, and her daughter and her love to do spa days and run around at whatever playground they can find. For herself, she always adds time each day for meditation and reflection.
