About Me

Hello, my name is Christy Cunningham. I am a Las Vegas based psychotherapist, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor Intern. I am also a trained in EMDR. Offering individual, couples and group therapy, I specialize in recovery from sexual abuse, chemical dependence, codependency, childhood trauma, depression, anxiety, anger and OCD. My approach to treatment is client centered and collaborative. My modalities include Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Attachment Therapy and Family Systems Therapy.

 As you browse my website, you’ll get a sense of who I am and how I might be able to help you. Here is a little more information about me.

 I am a native of Las Vegas, Nevada. I have always been driven to pursue a career path that involved serving others. That has led me to work overseas in Thailand for four years back in the 1990s teaching English and working on short projects in the hill tribe villages of Northern Thailand such as installing a septic system in a village with no plumbing system and helping to build ponds so they could grow fish to eat.

My Journey

 After graduating with a Bachelor of Science from BIOLA University, I also had the opportunity to do projects in the southern part of India including helping to build an orphanage and working with a team to provide basic heath services to the children of that orphanage. When I returned to the states I worked on staff at a church leading others to do services projects in Mexico, the Philippines and Thailand. I also worked with the Las Vegas City Mission every week feeding and clothing the homeless in Las Vegas. Along with a very close friend, we tried to get involved in some of their lives by going to their home, helping them clean and cook and work through their problems.

Although I very much enjoyed my volunteer work, I began to have a growing interest in doing something that would have a greater impact. I decided to follow a new career path that would allow me to focus on this developing passion. I attended Regis University in Las Vegas and obtained my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology with and advanced certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy.  With this background, I was hired to provide individual and group therapy at WestCare Nevada. This was a critical time in my development as an addictions specialist, for it was through my patients and the training at WestCare Nevada that I came to believe that addiction is a disease, and realized I wanted to specialize in addiction. I have also spent several years working with type 14 Medicaid clinics providing wraparound services to my clients and their families working with them both in the office and, at times, in their homes, when appropriate and necessary.

 Another pivotal experience that shaped my development as a psychotherapist was experiencing my own individual, couples and group therapy. Working through my own childhood pains and issues empowered me to have meaningful growth, which I was able to accomplish from my work in therapy, further fueled my desire to be and grow as a therapist.

My Approach

As a psychotherapist I work in a supportive, collaborative and practical way, often with humor, to confront issues which interfere with my patients’ attaining their goals in life.

 My own therapeutic journey, professional skills, work experience and family life have helped me create a solid foundation for the work I do.

 I love being a therapist and feel privileged to be allowed to share my patients’ unique journey to recovery. I hope that you will give me that opportunity. Please feel free to call me.
