About Me

Hello, I'm Holly Andres, and I have been practicing for over 27 years since Master's degree and over 24 years with my clinical license as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I currently practice in Nevada, since November of 2001, and had previously practiced in both Missouri and Kansas.

I completed an intensive fellowship in Cognitive Therapy at The Overkand Park Center for Cognitive Therapy from 1994 thru 1998. I have additional training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) @ The Maiberger Institute in Boulder CO , 2014-2015. I also have training specific to gambling addiction (2006) as well as addictions for substance abuse, including alcohol (1996-2000) .

I truly enjoy working with teens and have done so my entire career, whether in outpatient therapy, inpatient psychiatric or residential psychiatric settings. I have worked with couples and families throughout my career in a variety of settings, and enjoy this work. My full history can be found on the internet under my name, Holly A. Andres, MSW, LCSW.

My style is warm and open without judgement. Teens like my approach and appreciate that I keep their sessions confidential and private. I have clear boundaries and am very clear about my role and how I communicate. I view trust as the cornerstone of Therapy, and believe that minor clients deserve privacy and confidentiality and to be informed about the limits of privacy and confidentiality and never having to second guess if I have revealed anything to their parents, as I clearly review that in my first sessions, noting I will tell the teen if it is a mandated reporting issue, or a very dangerous situation, before I speak to their parents. Otherwise, I view my role as assisting a teen process their feelings and assisting them with making better choices; I do not see my role as being an inside spy to extract and give information to parents.

I welcome the opportunity to meet new teen clients and am honored to walk alongside them in their emotional struggles, assisting them to find answers that work for them, and to make the best decision.

Holly is wonderful. She’s honest and helpful. She’s gently insightful. I suffer from anxious thoughts and feelings, Holly is not extremely considerate, personable and gentle in her approach. I trust Holly to help me. Holly is the reason I recommend teencounseling.com because the app is buggy, but I preserve with the technology issues thanks to how helpful Holly has been for me.

Holly is great for my child. She is also great for our family. She is very understanding and responsive to our child’s needs. Thank you for helping.

Holly is a rock star. She listens to me and understands the issues I'm working through. She is invested in me and that makes a huge difference to my mental well-being. Whenever I share a journal entry, Holly always answers with insightful comments and suggestions for further reading or watching. She is very thoughtful and accommodating in arranging sessions despite a time difference. I would unreservedly recommend Holly as a therapist - I look forward to our weekly sessions and am growing and changing as a result.

After one visit I feel comfortable with Holly. I look forward to meeting with her next week.
