New Horizons Counseling Center was found in 2004 out of a desire to increase the quality of mental health care in Southern Nevada and to help people find peace with their bodies and themselves. We help patients with different needs with care specific to their unique situations. Our website shares information and insights about who we are, what we do, and how we can help.
We offer one-on-one counseling designed to help you tackle life’s most difficult challenges, discover your true dreams and goals in life and deal with the obstacles that are standing in your way.
Family relationships can be the most important relationships in our lives as well as the most strained and conflicted. Families can be torn apart by illness, divorce, or other problems that create conflict and stress. Family counseling can help to resolve this stress.
EMDR psychotherapy is an information processing therapy and uses an eight phase approach to address the symptoms of a wide range of psychological pathologies.
