Our Las Vegas therapists are solution-focused, offering individual therapy , couple therapy & marriage counseling.


At our Las Vegas therapy office, licensed therapists help people find healthy ways to target and resolve life issues. Whether through individual counseling, marriage counseling or couples therapy, our Las Vegas therapists can help you figure out how to move forward and make better choices in your life. Many individuals struggle with depression, anxiety, painful relationships or just find themselves in uncomfortable situations that keep happening over and over. We help individuals understand their choices and uncover strategies that will effectively change their life for the better. Individual therapy can often be someone’s first experience feeling safe enough to really uncover the root issues and develop the skills to make healthy changes. Couples often find couples counseling to be the last house on the block. After failed attempts to get your needs met in a relationship, going to therapy can be an effective way to find connection and happiness in your relationship. An experienced therapist can help couples develop a better understanding for each other. When clients finally understand each other they will often begin to treat each other respectfully and more lovingly. We offer the communication tools and skills that help couples create relationship strategies that work. We offer a solution focused approach, and all of our therapists are committed to furthering their expertise through ongoing education.

The therapeutic process can be a profound learning experience for clients, who need a little extra help resolving their issues. We teach empowerment and self-awareness through a solution-focused therapy approach. Our Las Vegas therapy offices have licensed professionals, who have not only helped numerous people acquire clarity in their lives, but also helped them create a road-map that leads them to health, happiness, peace and success. Video Transcript Hello. My name is Sevin Philips. I am the founder of our Las Vegas therapy center, and I’m a licensed therapist. I’m here to give you some information to help you make a decision. First of all, are we the right fit for you? And also, if you’ve never done this thing before, I’m wondering: do you know what to expect? And so I want to give you a little information about how this process works.I’m also going to give you some practical information about how to help pay for therapy. Everyone from time to time runs into issues in their life, we don’t always have the answers, and sometimes we stumble and get stuck. I want to say this because I think sometimes we feel that it’s weak or there’s something wrong with us that we have to ask for help, and is completely untrue. Asking for help is one of the healthiest things you can do when you need it. We’re licensed Las Vegas therapists, and it could be a great first choice because our job is to help people. We’ve been doing it for many years. We have skills, and tools, and experience at our side to assist you to move forward in new and healthy ways. When you come into your first session, we’re probably going to ask you some questions about what’s going on in your life. We want to know your thoughts, your feelings, your opinions about your life issue, and we’re going to have a conversation with you. It’s very interactive. Makes people feel very comfortable, I think. And we’re going to get to know you. And also because we have a very specific way of having this conversation, you’re going to get to know yourself a lot more than you probably already do. And I often find clients have epiphanies or deeper levels of clarity about themselves that are very helpful in moving forward. We often find that this relationship between therapist and client is very unique. Unlike family and friends where you have to anticipate other people’s feelings and maybe withhold some information to protect other people, you don’t have to do that with us. This is one place where it gets to be just about you, it’s a very safe place. Moving forward we want to, with your help, create a roadmap finding new strategies to create the kind of life that you want. We’re going to take the tools that are applicable for you and help you with those during our session, and we’re going to support you as you take those out into your life in your own pace so that you can make the changes that you want. I recommend you go to our website and watch some of the videos or read some of the articles that we have. You’re going to find a life issue, most likely, that you can relate to. It can be very helpful just even watching some of our videos, whether you see our therapist or not. Also you’re going to get to know the kinds of advice that we give, and I think that’s going to be helpful. The best thing you can do, though, is to pick up that phone and give us a call. Our receptionist staff can answer basic questions, and they’re going to be able to direct you to the therapist that you’d be working with. What’s great about that is you can tell the therapist a little bit about why you want to come in, and have a conversation with them on the phone, see if you feel comfortable. Is there a good personality match? And if you feel comfortable, you can make an appointment. Paying for therapy, sometimes people have what’s called out-of-network coverage, and you can call your insurance company and verify if you have out-of-network coverage. And if you do, we can give you an invoice that may help you get reimbursed. Sometimes people have employee benefits, like health savings accounts, and you can use those monies to pay for therapy. I hope this was helpful. And really, my ultimate message is: if you want to take the next step in your life and move forward, pick up the phone and let us know what we can do to help. Thank you so much. We specialize in a solution-focused approach to individual counseling, couples therapy, couples counseling and marriage counseling.

Hello, my name is Sevin Philips. I’m a Licensed Therapist and I’m also the Founder of the Relationship Counseling Center Las Vegas offices. We specialize in helping people with life issues, that’s what we do best. We help couples and individuals work on their relationship issues as well.

When couples come in, we can create a safe environment for you guys to have a nonjudgmental, non-blaming space to work out your relationship. We can help you get clear about what’s really going on between you two, and sometimes that added clarity can be really healing. Most importantly, we want to teach you the right communication skills and tools necessary to treat each other well and be happy in your relationship.I hire everybody at our center in Las Vegas, and I want you to know that everyone is a licensed therapist, in addition, I hire people who are old enough to have enough life experience to back up their skillset – and that’s important for you to know.Many of our clients find that we’re very down-to-earth. We give a lot of direct feedback. We’re very interactive. We also help you set up relationship goals for your relationship; it’s a very important thing to do in therapy. It’ll let you know how you’re doing as you’re moving through therapy and it also will let you know when it’s time to leave because you’ve achieved your goals. That’s the ultimate end result of going to therapy: we want to help you with your relationship so you don’t have to be here anymore, and we try to do that as best we can in a solution-focused style, much like a coach. We help people with their relationship and give them the tools necessary.Sometimes people come in who are single and perhaps just want to find the right partner, maybe you haven’t made the best decisions in the past and need some help. Sometimes an individual will come in who’s in a marriage or in a relationship and you just want to get clear about what you can do to improve your relationship or get clear on what the next step is for you. Of course, we specialize in marriage counseling and couples therapy, and you can come in any time.

One thing you should know is that we are covered if you have out-of-network coverage. You can verify with your insurance company first to make sure. We’re all licensed Las Vegas therapists. In addition, if you have any flex spending or health savings accounts, you might be able to use some of those monies to pay for it.

First step really is just to give me a call. I’d love to answer any question you might have. Of course, if everything feels good, I’ll have the therapist give you a call. You can tell them a little bit about why you’re coming in, get to know them on the phone a little bit – which is a great first step – and, of course, they’ll tell you all the times that they can see you, both day and evening so that you can come in as soon as possible. We usually can see people within 24 to 48 hours.

We also have a lot of videos on this website. It’s important because I want you to be able to look at some of those videos and get a feeling about what kind of therapist we are and what kind of style that we have. You also might find that you get some really good information that you can start using in your relationship right now.

If you’d like to give me a call, please do. Thank you.

Las Vegas is often thought of as the Mecca of naughtiness – and it is, but it is also a good way to get out and experience a good time. But, you already know that because you are one of its residents. You also know that regardless of whether you prefer clean, old fashioned fun, or risqué activities, Las Vegas is the place to go! And, while I highly doubt that most of your time is spent perusing hotels and sitting at slot machines, it doesn’t hurt to enjoy the city together during the weekends. Every couple needs a little excitement from time to time, so spend a weekend enjoying things that are new to you or you simply never have time to do – just do it together. You will not believe how much fun you will have doing all of things you always wanted to do – with the person you love. And, can you imagine the memories you will create from it?! Wow! Just be careful not to get into anything that will destroy the trust in your relationship (i.e. solo strip club visits) and/or excessive drinking. You are there for each other, after all, so act like it and spice things up a little. I hate to feel passion and excitement – said no one ever!

So, follow my advice and live it up!

Even though you may have lived in Las Vegas for years or all of your life, in some cases, there is always things that you haven’t seen or done. And, I bet that visiting Sage at the Aria hotel is one of them. Well, if you have never been to this glorious place, it is time that you and your honey make a trip there – pronto! And, one of the best things about Las Vegas is that tons of chefs move to this city, in an effort to demonstrate their exquisite culinary skills. So, take advantage of this awesome benefit and sample its delectable American cuisine, complete with global influences and test out Sage’s extensive wine collection. Spoil your loved one with all of the finest amenities and foods that money can buy, and I guarantee, he or she will be looking at you with newer, more romantic eyes.

Bellagio Hotel
If you just want to “get away from everything,” but can’t really take an out-of-town trip, book a night or two at the Bellagio Hotel, located on “The Strip.” If your relationship is struggling or you just want to spend a little alone time with the love of your life, sign up for a couple’s massage or a couple’s spa day. If that isn’t your “cup of tea,” go outside at night and spend time watching the Bellagio Fountains’ choreographed light show, and accompanying music. If that doesn’t spark your feelings of love for one another, I don’t know what will. The lights, music and ambiance are magical and very, very romantic. The Fountains are truly breathtaking and will leave a lasting impression on you and your partner. After watching the fountains, travel over to the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for some floral therapy.

Who doesn’t love a beautiful garden, and who doesn’t feel love and romance when standing amongst lush, vibrant vegetation (i.e. trees, flowers and plants)? No one – that is who! The lights, along with the foliage, can provoke feelings of beauty, forgiveness, and life – all the elements needed to repair a damaged relationship, and enhance a strong one. So, grab the hand of your honey, and stroll along the bridges, take pictures in the gazebos, and stop to admire the ponds and water fountains. Spending time in such a gorgeous environment will have a profound effect on you and your partner.

And, if fun is what is needed to start the healing process in your relationship, purchase tickets to a Cirque Du Soleil show like “O” at the Bellagio Hotel, and sit back and enjoy a combination of lively costumes, fantastic music, aquatic acrobats, and theatrical performances by the world’s best athletes. “O” is exciting and fun, and that may be just what your relationship is missing – excitement and good old fun. So, reconnect with your loved one through a Cirque du Soleil show, and afterwards talk about what you liked best about it. Sharing experiences can get those conversations going, which if communication is a problem, can be the first step on the right path. And, guess what? Every hotel on the “Las Vegas Strip” offers Cirque Du Soleil shows, ranging from “KA” at MGM Grand to Criss Angel Believe at The Luxor.

Mandalay Bay’s Beach, Golden Nugget Hotel & Wet Republic Ultra Pool
Sometimes, you just need some R&R, and what better way to receive this much needed rest and relaxation than to indulge at the Mandalay Bay’s sandy beach, swim with sharks at the Golden Nugget Hotel, and/or float on Wet Republic’s sexy ultra-pool. Truth-be-told, things seem much more challenging and taxing when you are stressed and tired, and that tension, even if the relationship is not the problem, can transfer to the thing you hold most precious – your relationship. I know, I know that is the last thing you want, ok, well that is good; therefore do something to change things!

And, if you are looking for something faster-paced, you may want to consider going to a pool party at the Marquee Day and Night Club, or gambling at one of the many casinos located in all of the major hotels on the “The Strip,” however, I don’t recommend spending too much time at the slot machines or poker tables. Why? Well, if you lose too much money and you have been struggling, as a couple, with financial issues, it could cause more harm than good. But, if you and your partner are looking for something risqué, take off your swim attire and spend some impish time together at the topless beach – Venus Pool Club at Caesar’s Palace.

Contrary to popular belief, my hubby and I don’t have a perfect marriage, but who does, right? There were/are several issues we needed/need assistance with; one of which was/is a nagging problem for quite some time. We’ve had several sessions with him and every time our sessions ended I felt some breakthrough had occurred, no

So, I’ve had what I’ll call “classic” issues with therapy. Until about 18 months ago, I thought that I could just deal with whatever I needed to, without help. Yeah. Then, I had a couple of unsuccessful starts with a couple of other therapists; One who really sucked, and one whose style was more along
