About us

Dr. Stephanie Holland, Ltd., aka Desert Psychological, is a private, for-profit company.  We began as a small private practice in 1996 offering quality mental health services and specializing in children and adolescents.  Through the efforts of dedicated employees, we grew into the practice we are today - providing comprehensive mental health services including assessments, psychological testing, psychotherapy, and rehabilitative services. 

Along the way we became a sought-after training site for professionals in the mental health field at various levels of education, licensure and specialties.   We are also a research affiliate for the University of Nevada Las Vegas. 

Desert Psychological collaborates with community partners including the Department of Child and Family Services, the Family Court system, the penal system, and various federal agencies, all of which strive to serve at-risk children, adults, and families in the greater Las Vegas community. 

Desert Psychological prides itself on its relationship with schools in the community,  who refer students for learning and/or behavioral evaluations as well as pre-college entrance evaluations . 

We are proud of the quality of our professional staff, many of whom performed their internships here, became licensed doctors, and have stayed leading not only to the expansion of the physical facilities, but also growing our expertise in areas of testing and treatment.
