Upcoming Office Relocation
As of October 2, 2016, I will be moving to a new private practice location. The new address is 9550 S. Eastern Ave., Suite 220 Las Vegas,NV 89123.  My new office phone is (702) 850-3855.  I can be reaching at this number or by email at dawn@gentlemindstherapy.com.  




From 2008-2016, I have been in private practice, seeing individuals, couples and families. I have also been a full time clinical supervisor for MFT/LCPC interns.

I received my Bachelors Degree in Psychology in 1998 from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and I received my Masters Degree in Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy in 2001 from UNLV as well. After being an MFT Intern for three years, I received full licensure in April of 2005 (#0992). I received my dual licensure as an alcohol and drug counselor in October of 2006 (01178-L), after additional supervision and education specifically in substance abuse. I am currently a Clinical Member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. I am an Approved Supervisor for Marriage and Family Therapist Interns. 

From 2008-May 2012, I was the part-time school counselor for the Henderson International School, a private school for ages Pre-K through 8th grade.  From 2002 until 2008, I worked at the Clark County Department of Juvenile Justice, Psychological Services. As an Adolescent Counselor, I conducted detailed consultations and administered assessments to adolescents in detention or on probation. This included in-depth interviews with their families, and writing court reports based on assessment results as well as making treatment recommendations for those youth and their families. My job also included counseling young men and women in detention, including suicide and risk assessments as well as maintenance counseling for adjustment difficulties. I also assisted in the Substance Abuse Assessment and Referral Program (SAARP) for first time drug and alcohol offenders and their families, and conducted family counseling when it was ordered by the court.

From 2002 until 2008, I also taught as a part-time Adjunct Professor, teaching undergraduate classes in UNLV’s Department of Education’s Bachelors in Human Services program. The classes I have taught include Ethics and Professional Issues in Human Services, Introduction to Human Services, and Internship in Human Services.

Prior to these positions, I provided counseling services in private practice, with Community Counseling Center, Student Psychological Services (UNLV), and the Center for Individual, Couple, and Family Counseling (UNLV) since January of 2001.
