About me

I have been a Licensed Social Worker in the State of Nevada since 2006 and have been a therapist since 2017.I have more than 5 years of professional work experience as a therapist. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, relationship issues, depression & family conflicts.
I am an Allied to the LGBTQ+ community. I have attended few THRIVE conferences in order to familiarize myself more with issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. I have worked with members of such community that were going through various issues to include but not limited to coming out to the world. I have prepared my clients to come out to their friends, parents, and employers when needed. I have also worked with people who were seeking to become transgenders.
Although I work with every age, I have worked very well also with children (4-18). Currently my youngest client is 5 years old and my oldest one is over 67 years of age.

I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I tailor dialog and treatment plan to meet my clients' unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

Dr. Amavigan is all at once very professional and knowledgeable, while being very compassionate and empathetic. Could not have picked a better therapist on my own
