My Story


I’m Shelby Nakamura, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Las Vegas - here to guide you through life’s most complex and difficult matters. I truly care about my patients’ well-being and guarantee top of the line counseling services catered to their needs.


Originally from Hawaii, I moved to the 9th island in 2013 to pursue my Bachelor's degree in Psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I loved the community and the experience that Nevada had to offer. In 2016, I continued my educational career at UNLV with a specialization in Couple and Family Therapy, and recently graduated in December 2018.


During my graduate clinical experience, I have provided a number of specialized therapeutic services to those dealing with challenging life experiences. I was able to focus on teenagers that struggle with eating disorders, couples struggling with infidelity and technology, and the treatment of anxiety disorders. Client well-being is my number one priority, and I go above and beyond to help them through all their obstacles.

Get in touch with me today for more information.
