Nancy Jenkins has 20 years of experience helping individuals and families heal and thrive. She spent the early portion of her career working with thousands of families as a parent educator, helping parents address some of the most challenging issues that face families.
Nancy has worked in residential settings with severely addicted adult criminal offenders and with adolescents, young adults, and families struggling with a variety of mental health diagnoses. Her specialties include bi-polar disorder, oppositional-defiance disorder, depression, addictions, and trauma.

She understands the sense of loss and pain families experience when a loved one follows the path of a heart in conflict. Nancy has run several mental health agencies in administrative capacities, but says that, "my most fulfilling role has been that of a front-line therapist, changing lives." Her passion is seeing lives transformed and hearts healed.
After receiving bachelor’s degree from UNLV (magna cum laude), she went on to earn a master’s degree in counseling and received the Student Counselor of the Year award from the University of Phoenix.
