About Me

Life can offer terrible events that can crush your dreams… but I believe it’s never too late to change. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Pahrump, NV. I use an eclectic approach including techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Brief Solution Focus Therapy.

My clinical experience includes servicing clients in bereavement, the criminal justice system, chronic medical/mental health challenges, assessing for psychiatric and rehabilitative levels of care that will bring about a healing process during times of crisis and challenge.

I will focus primarily on moving forward in time to develop more effective ways of coping with life. During the first visit, a mental health assessment is vital for early steps in taking charge of mental health and wellbeing. I will collaborate with you to evaluate levels of disruption and duration in order to identify the problem and move forward.

A wonderful therapist! Coming from a person who has a hard time opening up, she is so easy to talk to. Therapy felt like talking to a friend rather than an appointment.

Written by A.R. on Jun 23, 2022 after therapy with Marvina for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and sleeping disorders

So easy, it doesn’t seem like therapy. Feels like your talking to a family friend who has some life experience and helps guide you with your thought process but not afraid to give a different perspective.

I hit the wrong end of the box one of the the questions and I'd give her a 10/10

After one session she opened up her past which made me comfortable about my past and moving forward and working with her

Marvina Truss was the first therapist that went as far as understanding my childhood upbringing. She attentively listens and provides great advice when I need it. Would recommend!

She is very positive and understands my strengths and weaknesses. Due to her maturity and being in the same age group, with me, we're able to talk about various subjects on different levels. She's an excellent therapist!

I’ll forever be grateful to have her! With her help and advice I’ve learned a lot about myself and how to better cope with my anxiety, stress and relationships.

My first time with a therapist and she is absolutely wonderful. I've been dealing with a lot of grief and anxiety and she has been such a great help.

Great Spiritual Person . Exactly what I needed

Written by K.I. on Apr 29, 2022 after therapy with Marvina for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and intimacy-related issues

Dr. Truss feels like exactly what I’ve needed in a therapist! I don’t feel hesitant to open up and talk about what’s going on with me or my thoughts. I want to just blurt out everything that’s happening when we’re on the calls- which shows her ability to connect. I’ve already referred BetterHelp to someone who’s begun their sessions!! I’m excited about continuing this process to uncover more of who I am

Written by J.E. on Mar 17, 2022 after therapy with Marvina for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

She is a good listener and very encouraging. I love that she brings her faith into our sessions because it helps me feel connected to her and that I can trust her. I didn't know how long I wanted to do these sessions, but hoping to do them for a while because she is someone I want to keep talking to.

She is great so far… it’s only been a handful of sessions… looking forward to more

I’ve have several therapist and Ms.Truss is THE perfect match for me. She is truest heaven sent and I wouldn’t want any other therapist besides her. She’s gentle and kind with her helping hand!

Written by J.A. on Dec 05, 2021 after therapy with Marvina for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Ms. Marvina is phenomenal. She makes me feel so comfortable in our sessions like I’ve known her forever. Even though we are still in the early stages of therapy and getting to know each other, we are on our way to great growth, I can see that.

Work with me!
