Does your child suffer from anxiety? Do daily tasks seem to overwhelm your child?
Greater Las Vegas Academy understands that every child learns differently. The neurodiversity of children is vast. We wanted to create an inclusive, stress-free environment, that supported their mental growth, and their intellectual development. We are now offering onsite mental health and counseling services for children and families. It is common that children need a break from time-to-time, and the traditional classroom setting is just not working for everyone. We have created environments where our students' learning needs are being met, instead of them trying to meet our standards. This concept is important for children with neurodiversity. They are smart and will achieve great things. Every child thinks differently and everyone is great at something.
Changes in environment can trigger children in an adverse way. With an inclusive environment consisting of a caring school and onsite therapeutic services, these stresses can be reduced at an early age. They are not alone in the way they feel and think. We are here to help them achieve success and a love for school. Our inclusive services will provide children a neurodiverse learning environment that is NEW to Las Vegas. This opportunity to receive an education that will encompass their entire mind. All children need a little break sometimes, children need to talk, children are active, and often imaginative it is our job to teach them the way they process the information. We work on relaxation tools and ways to focus energy into learning.

"I believe in a Holistic Wellness approach to therapy, I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR Therapy), I use guided visualizations, and Expressive Therapies such as Bibliography, Art and Music Therapy, and Sandtray Therapy. These are offered in conjunction with individualized client sessions and treatment plans.
I believe that individuals have the right to make their own choices, to be present in the here and now, to create a sense of meaning and purpose to their lives and to be able to enjoy their choices by accepting themselves and to live life to the fullest."
