Veronica Perez-Kahl, LCSW

Therapist & CEO

I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Master’s Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Mental Health at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.  I have 9 years of clinical experience across a variety of settings including inpatient psychiatric hospital, crisis intervention, mobile crisis assessments, outpatient, the Clark County School District (CCSD), and now in private practice.  I have provided administrative and clinical supervision to UNLV practicum students, CSW-interns, and licensed colleagues to enhance their knowledge base.  I work with children (ages 5-12 y/o), youth, adults, couples, families and maintain an affirming stance for individuals who identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

My specializations include, but are not limited to treatment of adjustment disorders, anxiety, depression, divorce, mood disorders, schizophrenia, trauma, and more.  My passion for learning led me to return to school and currently working on a doctorate degree with emphasis in clinical psychology.  I am invested in always seeking additional clinical skills to add to my toolbox to help all my clients.  What differentiates me from other clinicians in the Vegas valley is that I have an innate ability to establish rapport, build trust, provide genuine compassion, empathetic listener and relate to individuals from all different walks of life. 

I view the therapeutic process as an alliance between the client and myself and consider my clients as the experts of their lives.  I use a variety of treatment modalities such as Art Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Client-Centered, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Family Systems, Motivational Interviewing, and other modalities.  My theoretical approach is based on the belief that my clients are in control of their therapeutic experience.  I look forward to meeting you and working alongside you.

I am a Clinical Social Work-intern. I am a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where I obtained my Bachelor’s in Psychology and Masters in Social Work. I entered the Mental Health world to explore my passion for the complexities of human behavior, helping others, and creating goals tailored to each unique individual. Over the course of my career, I have worked in positions where my duties include conducting psychosocial assessments for new patients admitted to inpatient hospitals, providing emotional support and counseling, arranging treatment plans, teaching emotional, cognitive, and social skills, evaluating the needs of clients, connecting individuals and their families with necessary resources. I have provided services ranging from adolescence to late adulthood. I have held many roles as an advocator, educator, mediator, case manager, negotiator, and therapist.

I initiated my professional journey in the mental health field as a licensed psychologist in Mexico, achieving over eight years of clinical experience in private practice. In 2018, I moved to the United States, where I continued my professional journey by completing an M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I am now licensed as a Clinical Professional Counselor Intern, Certified Problem Gambling Counselor Intern, and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor Intern in Nevada. I have worked in community mental health clinics and currently practice in private practice. Additionally, I am pursuing a PhD in Counselor and Education.


I am a bilingual (Spanish/English) counselor. My clients include children aged 5 and above, adolescents, young adults, and adults. I offer a compassionate space of healing and growth for children starting age 5, adolescents, young adults, and adults. My approach is rooted in evidenced-based practices, empowering individuals to navigate the emotional, social, and behavioral challenges individuals might experience. I am dedicated to helping clients regain a sense of balance and control, fostering resilience, and promoting holistic well-being. I support and promote social justice for marginalized communities and provide a safe space for those who may not feel comfortable elsewhere.
